Additional details

Sail Date: Apr 2019
Cabin: Large Ocean-View Stateroom

Like the maritime provinces and wanted to see more.

Embarkation was somewhat disorganized; we arrived in Boston on a redeye at 7:30 am but couldn't board until 11:00 am. Spent most of this time on folding chairs.

Enjoyed room service breakfast EVERY MORNING! My husband went early to Lido Deck each morning for his favorite SMOKED SALMON! Puff pastry sweet rolls every morning, also!

Cabin Review

Large Ocean-View Stateroom

Cabin C

Very spacious; never been in ocean view room! Because we booked only a month in advance, the ocean view was same cost as interior room. Nice to have a view without leaving the room.

Port Reviews


Only spent time at the terminal.

Bar Harbor

Easily walkable; nice shops and churches.


Walked easily around waterfront; made it partway up the hill; saw the clock.

Charlottetown (Prince Edward Island)

Didn't want to spring for an excursion, but the area is lovely.

Quebec City

Like walking around Paris; tour guide said prettiest city next to Edinburgh; true! Were told there would be French only speakers in shops; not true.
