Good stuff first, food was good the dining service staff Cynthia and Sandeep were awesome. Our room Stewart Clarke very friendly did a great job. PEI tour was great. That was the reason we went. My wife is big fan of the Ann of green gables. Getting on was the normal made house stuff you get while getting on a big ship.

The tours :Cabot trail was a few stops enclosing a stop at a closed college for 45 mins to run 50 people through 3 restrooms. It was 7 hours of riding around. The lunch was supposed to be a lobster buffet, it was a box lunch with a tiny piece of lobster tail. The hop on and off in St John was 90 mins of stops were nothing was open. The reversing rapids was the only place to get off. Portland tour was boring except for the light house. Saganay was the fjords was good. Had to buy our own lunch along with 100 other people in one restaurant. They had sandwiches made up ahead of time.

The ship: a Diet Coke was $4.13. A bottle of wine I found at Walmart for $9.28 was $52.00. The all drink package was for the week $1000. They used their internet for announcements, but you had to sign up for the package for the week $450. We asked for the paper, schedule and Clarke got it to us. The windjammer was always crowded and noisy. The entertainment was not great, the singer Max couldn’t carry a tune in a bucket. The Alley Cats and the comedians were good.

Cabin Review

Small, I could touch all the walls in the bathroom, and trip over the stuff in the little bedroom with a balcony
