We went to experience new destinations and this was achieved very well. Most of the ports on the St Lawrence Seaway and on Newfoundland are very different from your average cruise destination. The timing was exactly correct for the autumn colours. Sailing from Liverpool was highly convenient.
Unfortunately, the weather on both Atlantic crossings was mostly very poor but the ship handles it well. My wife was only rolled out of bed once!
The crew had to contend with high levels of food poisoning for the last week ( we did not suffer) and did this most efficiently though obviously, all the hygiene measures in dining etc spoiled the experience somewhat.
