Price and a chance to see if our first impressions were correct. We took this cruise 10 days before sailing because we had done an earlier cruise on the Caribbean Princess. We also wanted to see the fall leaves, did so on the train ride from Montreal airport to cruise port. If you are going, it is the easiest way to get from the airport to the cruise port area, and so much cheaper. Beside it is a lovely train ride down the seaway, especially in the fall. The ship itself, was in the middle to its third code red. It had a deep cleaning in NYC and one in Quebec City, before we boarded. It was scheduled for a third deep cleaning in NYC upon our arrival. On our journey we had seven cases on Noro, staff and entertainers, no passengers. . We used the cruise, which had eight days of ports as transportation, and a place to sleep. Loved the ports, we did our on thing in each on, took a couple a tours, purchased at or near the ports, which was easy to do. Because we didn't care for the food, it had been an issue on our earlier cruise also, we ate off the ship most every day, very reasonable and good. At the local supermarket in Sydney for 3,00 CD freshly made for us, a great lobster roll. . Ate Lobster in Halifax and Bar Harbour---through the later was the most expensive of the lot. 30.00usd for a complete dinner which was so big we shared it. Boston, we ate at our favourite seafood place. In all it was a good cruise. The food on the ship was not very good, especially dinner in MDR.

Second time around this season

We took this cruise 10 days before sailing because we had done

an earlier cruise on the Caribbean Princess. We also wanted to

see the fall leaves, did so on the train ride from Montreal airport to

cruise port. If you are going, it is the easiest way to get from the airport to

the cruise port area, and so much cheaper. Beside it is a lovely train ride down

the seaway, especially in the fall. The ship itself, was in the middle to its third code

red. It had a deep cleaning in NYC and one in Quebec City, before we boarded.

It was scheduled for a third deep cleaning in NYC upon our arrival. On our journey

we had seven cases on Noro, staff and entertainers, no passengers. . We used the cruise, which had eight days of ports as transportation, and a place to sleep.

Loved the ports, we did our on thing in each on, took a couple a tours, purchased at or

near the ports, which was easy to do. Because we didn't care for the food, it had
