What You Can Expect
Admire Montmorency Falls, the highest waterfall in Quebec, and see the port installations on both shores of the St Lawrence River. Glide beneath the prestigious Fairmont Le Château Frontenac, perched atop Cap Diamant, with the majestic Laurentian Mountains in the background.
On board, you can purchase a snack or meal with drinks, such as cocktails, to be enjoyed on the viewing decks (own expense).
The pier was easy to find adjacent to Old Town and near our cruise ship dock. It was a beautiful sunny day, perfect for viewing the scenery from the open deck [there was inside areas as well]. The ship was a great way to see the 'St Lawrence face' of Quebec City and Ile d'Orleans island across the river. We had a creative narrator dressed in 18th Century finery who was very open to questions. It was a great trip.
We had spent two days walking around Quebec city and seeing the sights. Seeing the city from the river was a very nice experience, and a whole new view. I would recommend it to anyone visiting Quebec city.
