In September, I hosted 24 clients on a cruise to Canada and New England to see the fall colors. I am from Canada but had not been east of Montreal so it was fun to share my home country and see it during the most beautiful time of the year.
I chose Oceania cruise lines since they offered a great itinerary on a small ship — only 684 passengers. The itinerary started in Montreal and went on to Quebec City, Newfoundland, Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Maine, Rhode Island and ended in New York City.
I arranged for private tours for my group which gave us all better tours for a fraction of the price of those offered by Oceania. Friends of mine, who are retired school teachers, had become guides in several of the Canadian ports so they provided a very personal and interesting tour experience.
I strongly recommend Oceania Cruises. I thought the service and food were outstanding. There were many dining venues to choose from and their Italian and Steak specialty restaurants offer an excellent fine dining experience. I liked them so much, I decided to host another cruise to the Baltic in Aug 2014.
