If you want a bit of excitement on this cruise, this is it! A little pricey, but worth it. I loved zip lining over the Reverse Falls! So much fun! Don't go if you are afraid of heights, though! You are really high up there. The crew was great. They were very safe, helpful with the zip line, and they did give us a bit of information about the falls. A lot of fun for the adventure seeker!

We saw the Reversing Rapids (not very picturesque with the paper mill front and center), toured the town and the highlight was the Bay of Fundy. This was worth the drive. (DO get a sandwich at Subway to eat later otherwise you will wait a ... Read More

ST. JOHN'S STATE OF MIND: We were really looking forward to visiting St. John's Newfoundland. We were there in 2010 and had a great time with a rental car meeting people and enjoying coastal towns. In 2014 Symphony was supposed to stop in St. John's but cancelled due to icebergs and fog. This year they cancelled again. The ship could safely get into the harbor, but forecasted high winds meant the ship would have to stay in harbor overnight and delay its arrival to Reykjavik. So we ended up with five sea days.

RCI has replaced St. John's Newfoundland with Cornerbrook, Newfoundland. While the cruise up and back in the fiord was scenic the town itself is not worth getting off of the ship. The cruise line must have cut some deal with the government to provide stimulus money by way of the cruise passengers. Read Less

This was a wasted stop for us. There were some things to do in the downtown area but we covered that in less than 2 hours. Not very attractive area. Passed on the reversing waters tour since we missed the good viewing times, based on the ... Read More

Pretty eerie, especially when it's raining and foggy. Desolate - where are the people of St. John? Even when the entertainment hosts asked the audience if they liked St. John, the crowd was silent. When asking if we liked Halifax, people actually cheered because it was that much more interesting than St. John. Suggestions, walk around town, check out the old market and cemetery. Read Less

This is St. John NB not Newfoundland. We did a walkabout and horse drawn tour of old St. John. $20 ea. a good hour, great way to see the old historical town. Had a good seafood lunch
