Highlight of trip! Quebec City is amazing. Views, architecture, shopping! This town has it all and we could have easily spent a week here. If you haven’t been there you are missing out!

We thoroughly enjoyed Quebec City. We flew ourselves in to YQB four days early (having tried to reason with unreasonable people at NCL air that they'd flown us into a city 200 miles away on the wrong day only to be told "tough noogies. Buyer Beware.") Our only regret is that we wished we flown in a full week ahead of time. Such a sublime experience. Great bus system. Had no problems with the language barriers. People often stopped and pointed us to places to catch the bus or buy tickets or timetables, etc. I think the longest wait we had was 15 minutes because we misread the bus stop location and the bus trundled past us only to stop a block away and we couldn't sprint that far before it left. But at least we knew where to catch the next one. Must be nice to have such a great public transportation system. If you lived there, I'm not sure a car is much of an asset. Uber's iffy. Read Less

This is one of North America's most interesting cities and very walkable, We walked the ramparts and then explored the narrow streets. The funicular had long lines and I am proud to say I walked the steps into the upper city!

We got off the ship in quebec City and stayed in the city for three days. LOVE Old Quebec. Awesome time there (but very expensive - on a par with downtown New York).

Charming and historic town. But very commercialized. We booked the Orleans Food and Wine Tour on Viatour. Highly recommend. Orleans is very scenic and the stops to sample chocolate, wine, cider and cassis were excellent.

Saying the name Quebec says everything. Chateau Frontenac ...lower and upper town. I think its the closest you can get to Europ without crossing the Ocean. All the site are walking distance from the ship.

We walked the old city, sightseeing Le Frontenac and then the many small shops on side streets, and Rue Saint -Jean. Shopping, restaurants at their best!

We walked, ate, and shopped to our heart's content. A lovely city, even if it's raining. The train station is only a 10 minute walk from the ship.

Docked at Berth 30, closer to the bus and train terminus. Berth can be accessed from either the motorway leading to bus terminal (outer pier), the inner harbor promenade leading to the old market, or a harbor bridge linking the other two old port berths. Note trains may pass by to block the access via inner harbor and bridge. Old city is within walking distance (20 minutes). Montmorency Falls is an easy 30-minute ride from Berth 30 by bus 800.

Gorgeous old town. Feels like Europe. Wander around on your own and take time to find a favorite little nook.

The one good thing about missing Bar Harbor was that, as the captain said he, "put the pedal to the metal" and headed to Québec as fast as he could get there. We were originally schedule to arrive in Québec on Sunday, October 14 at 10:00 am and we ended up arriving on Saturday, October 13 at around 7:00 pm. Not only did we get an extra evening and morning in Québec, we also got the BEST mooring spot you can get in Québec, right at the bottom of the lower city with incredible views. The shot you see here is the view from the ship looking up at the city. Only two ships can dock here and the others have to moor around the corner in a much more industrial area. We were glad we weren't in those spots. An awesome thing that happened due to us getting in early was that the sail-in on St. Lawrence Seaway was during Saturday afternoon instead of early in the morning on Sunday. I got some of my best photos of fall foliage colors on that sail-in. Like the one at right. Now that I have told you that we got in early and why that was so great, I just want to say that we LOVED Québec. This was easily the highlight of the cruise. Two full days to enjoy this amazing city. It is the only place we visited that I want to go back to. It was as close to Europe as you can get and still be on the continent of North America. It reminded me more of Marseilles than Paris. On our first morning I was up early to walk Québec. I did about five miles and traversed the upper and the lower city in the pre-dawn light, to get pictures of the sunrise from the top of the citadel. It was a wonderful experience to be able to leave the ship and come back at any time. Did this both mornings we were in the city and had a wonderful photo experience on both days. I went a little longer on the second day and got even more photos. We had previously booked a food tour of Québec with Tours Voir Québec and we met our guide Richard (pronounced Rishard) at the port in the early afternoon on Sunday. There were eight of us and we had booked a private tour that actually turned out to be a private tour. Just the eight of us and Richard. Our first stop was Cotes a Cotes, a restaurant that had been opened in the mid-1600s where we finally (after all these years of visiting Canada) actually ate poutine. For those who don't know, poutine is sometimes referred to as the national dish of Canada. It is the ultimate comfort food—french fries covered in gravy and cheese curds. OMG! Why did I wait so long to eat this? Maybe fear of a heart attack? I'm not sure when I will eat it again but it was wonderful. I ate all of mine and about a quarter of Kathleen's. Then it was on to a wonderful chocolate shop (Le Fudgerie), a cafe where we tried a wonderful terrine made of vegetables, the local farmer's market where we sampled hard ciders, syrups, macarons and even emu. (My sister-in-law Jamie LOVED the emu–NOT!). All of them were delicious and you can see many of them in my Québec slide show that's linked here. Our second day in Québec (we sailed at 3:30) was spent just shopping and looking around. Nothing organized. Read Less
