Boston and New England Cruise - 13 days from October 3rd to 15/2016.....

On Thursday, Holland America cruised the Gulf of St. Lawrence.   It was cold and windy outside – we tried to walk around the deck, but too cold. 

At lunch time, we were invited to a Mariner Society Brunch to celebrate the most cruise days with Holland America.  The Captain and Crew were there to greet us, but no handshaking.  A very nice brunch with a pleasant American couple, who were very interested in Oak Island.

On Friday, the Ship was in Quebec City.  After breakfast in the Dining Room, we went on the Holland America tour UNESCO Heritage Sites ($44.95).   Again, cold and windy - we did enjoy seeing the Fairmont Hotel, but when we toured the other historic sites, we were happy to stay on the bus with all the others.

We found out there was a Hop On/Off bus here, and pick-up was right besides the Ship.   Next time in Quebec City, we will take the Hop On/Off bus, because if it is cold, we could easily have picked an in-door activity.    
The tour lasted for 2 hours, and we came back to the Ship for lunch.

For dinner that night, this was the farewell dinner, and I had steak and lobster. 

The Ship sailed at 5 pm that night on the Saint Lawrence River.  On Saturday, at 7 in the morning, the Ship docked in Montreal - we had breakfast, and departed on the Holland America Shuttle to the airport.  I flew home, and arrived about 5 pm. 
The Cruise was the perfect ending to the Trip to Boston.
