    Hi Cruise Critics,


    I found something interesting about cruising in Canada this year.

    Canada is delaying the start of cruise season due to COVID-19



    "As a response to COVID-19, the Government of Canada will defer the start of the cruise ship season in Canada, from April 2, 2020, to July 1, 2020, at the earliest."

    This was a News release March 13, 2020, yet I/we have heard nothing from HAL 😞

    It is possible this was only for the Alaska route ports and not the New England/Canada ports.


    Hope you are all staying well and safe,

    Erik 🙂

    Hello Fellow Cruise Critics 🙂


    I just signed up for this cruise as a single with no single supplement at all 🙂

    I got a fantastic deal and used the Gift Card bonus on the HAL website front page to save $200 more to boot.

    14 days only gripe is it is the same ports both ways Boston to Montreal & Montreal to Boston, but it will still be fun.

    Just got of a B2B on the Nieuw Statendam in the Caribbean. That ship had a wonderful classical piano and string quartet, I hope the Zaandam has one too 🙂 Any card, game or trivia players yet? 


    Have a good and safe day,

    Erik 🙂

    Hello Everyone,

    We are wondering if cycling is an option in Bar Harbor to visit Acadia National Park.

    Looking for any ideas for excursions on this cruise. I have never been in this part of the country.  Thanks for any ideas you might have. 

    Our companions are doing a Segway tour in Halifax.  We have no real plans for any of the ports.

    Looking forward to visiting NE and Canada.  We're traveling with college buddies.  The guys have all been groomsmen for each other!  This should be fun!
