Spring Had Not Arrived Yet

We chose this cruise because we had never been to eastern Canada, and it was the only cruise and time of year the ship visited Toronto as well as Montreal and Quebec City. The best part and a surprise treat was ...

Canadian Maritime and St Lawrence Seaway combined with Great Lakes and Georgian

I've read many reviews about many cruise lines. I believe that people that are dissatisfied are way more likely to post a review than those who are completely happy with their experience. I'm going to be as ...

Don’t go down with this ship

We chose this cruise to be with our aging parents. The good news: nobody died. The bad news: we had to live through a week of noisy nights, cheap over cooked or processed food, missed excursions, and cheap ...

A wonderful cruise and accommodations

We chose this cruise because we wanted cool weather, to experience New England and Canada, and try a river rather than a giant ocean-going ship. We prefixed the cruise start in Portland by arriving earlier, staying ...

Overall, this Pearl Seas cruise compared well with AMA Waterways' European river cruises, but on a more informal and less elegant basis. The food and table service were excellent, though they did an unsatisfactory ...

Nice cruise overall; some improvements needed.

I am not a professional reviewer, and this is just my opinion. My wife and I are no big fans of mega-ships, so we thought we'd give Pearl Mist a try. We chose to sail from Portland, Maine, to Québec City in the ...
