This cruise was a celebration of successful medical treatments. We wanted to get away and be together after a great deal of anxiety. Also, we wanted to be close to the USA.

The timing, location and length of this cruise satisfied our needs.

Our experience exceeded our expectations that were high because of Viking's excellent reputation. From the moment of our Viking greeting after arrival at the airport in Montreal until our departure we felt comfortable with the happy, friendly and professional crew.

Cabin Review

Our cabin was roomy, well appointed and comfortable. My spouse is sensitive to back issues from sleeping; and she had no problems.

The quality of the room service breakfasts were excellent.

Port Reviews

Montreal

Tour guide was excellent. A step back into history.

Quebec City

Excellent tour guide with exceptional knowledge and passion for city.

Gaspe

Exceptional tour guide, a retired HS English teacher, with personal knowledge and experiences in area. Gaspe's experiences during WWII are fascinating. Plus their National Park is spectacular.

Boston

Tour guide was excellent, especially since he lived at the the Cape and had been a commuter during his career in Boston. Weather did not permit a cruise on the canal. We appreciated the concern for our safety.

Halifax

Tour guide was knowledgeable and shared knowledge well. We learned the importance of Halifax during WWII; and for the rescue efforts after the Titanic sunk.
