Our last day at sea was the best day on the water. We started out taking a wonderful three hour “Lighthouse Boat Tour” of the fabulous waterways of Bar Harbor. Lighthouses are useful and famous in this area even though many of them are not used anymore. The waters were dotted with hundreds of buoys for the lobster crates. And I mean hundreds, they are everywhere. The picturesque beauty is striking. Along our journey we viewed from the water the 35 room house of producer Dick Wolfe and one of the homes of Martha Stewart. Wow! The rich and famous sure do live well. After our splendid ride we went to lunch, again by the water, in a lovely restaurant called Stewman’s and finally got the dream I have always had…eating a whole Maine Lobster…in Maine. ... read more

The next day we arrived in Halifax - one of the most beautiful working harbors. We took the On-Off Hopper Bus to the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic which houses memorabilia from the Titanic. This exhibit was both very emotional and exciting at the same time. The museum is huge and full of memorabilia from many sunken ships full of stories and history. Afterward, we took a wonderful walk along the boardwalk. The Halifax boardwalk is open to the public 24 hours a day and includes the shops at Bishop's Landing and the Historic Properties buildings as well as the "Cable Wharf", a former cable ship terminal now used as a tour boat base for several vessels. Even though the weather changed quickly upon us and turned very cold, we still enjoyed the fresh air and ... read more

The next day, upon arriving in Sydney Nova Scotia the weather was beautiful and in fact we had a wonderful full day of sightseeing. Sydney has recently witnessed a revival as a result of significant government investment in cruise ship facilities and a waterfront revitalization plan which has seen a boardwalk and marinas constructed, and the world's largest fiddle. We boarded our tour bus with a very knowledgeable local telling us stories about the area and the history. We stopped in Iona to tour the quaint Highland Village depicting the early days of the area. The view was stunning, surrounded by a beautiful lake, hills and valleys reminiscent of Scotland. We spent a bit of time here talking to the locals of the period and learning about the area. After another short drive, we went to ... read more

The first city we stopped at on our cruise was Charlottetown, Prince Edwards Island. Upon our arrival I was disappointed to find it pouring rain, so, by our own choosing, we cancelled our city tour because it was just so wet. I sadly had wanted to revisit a wonderful seaport restaurant for lobster but we had to wait for our next stop along the way. We spent the morning leisurely enjoying breakfast then ventured out between rain drops to the terminal. Thank goodness I had my rain poncho with! In the terminal is a full permanent craft center for shopping the local products from jewelry to maple syrup. We met some of our fellow travelers, visited with them while sipping the local coffee. When we went back to the ship and enjoyed an afternoon lunch at ... read more

All aboard the Holland America ms Veendam to begin our tour of the cities along the St. Lawrence Seaway. Our first full day at sea was spent on the ship relaxing and enjoying the Veendam. The ship is considered moderate size with approximately 1400 passengers. While on the ship we were surprised at the amount and size of the public spaces; we never felt crowded, in fact quite the opposite as the ship felt open and comfortable. Our cabin was an ocean view room. We were surprised to find that even in this lower category we had a full shower and a bathtub! We would have preferred a balcony room, but we were very satisfied with the space, including a full couch and table in our cabin. Room service was excellent and always on time. The ... read more

The next day of our trip began with a very comfortable ride on the Via Rail Train. It only took about three hours from Montreal to Quebec City, which would be our overnight stop prior to our sailing on Holland America Line on the ms Veendam. Quebec City was originally a fort built high up on a hill surrounded by a wall for protection. Even though the walled city is not used anymore for defense, it is still visible throughout the city as a remembrance of the history of this beautiful city. The lower part of the city has the oldest known shopping street in North America, the Petit Champlain District, with many small stores, boutiques, and restaurants along charming cobblestone pedestrian streets. The Funiculaire du Vieux-Quebec, a funicular railway, departs the lower city from Petit ... read more

Len and I had the opportunity to travel with Holland America Cruise Lines via Canada including Nova Scotia, Halifax and Bar Harbor, Maine. This is not considered a changing of the colors cruise as it is a bit early, but we did have beautiful weather, and it was a great time to journey to this area. Our trip started in Montreal as a two-day bonus to the start of our cruise, offered by Holland America. Arriving in Montreal we found the airport to be very modern and efficient. After picking up our luggage we were whisked away by a representative of Holland America Cruise Lines for our transfer to the Fairmont Queen Elizabeth Hotel, again this was all included in our pre-cruise package. The location is wonderful – it sits right on top of the weatherproof ... read more

It’s been just over few weeks since I visited Greece, and I still can’t get it out of my head. Barely a few days go by without thinking of a dish I ate in a cafe in Athens, or that striking sight when you first see the Parthenon sitting atop the Acropolis. And with the sights and sounds of Athens in mind, I also think about my dining experience in Plaka where you can taste authentic Greek food. When there you must taste mousaka (eggplant and meat sauce), traditional souflaki (shish-kabob), and saganaki (flaming cheese). People begin drinking ouzo in the afternoons, with a small appetizer dish. Sitting in the shadow of the Acropolis, Plaka is the oldest part of Athens and has still retained some of the spirit of a simple local neighborhood. That ‘village’ ... read more

New Carnival CEO acknowledges value of travel agents Arnold Donald, Carnival Corp.'s new CEO, says he considers travel agents a valuable asset in the cruise line's growth.
