There are other sites where cruisers express their thoughts and that particular route is fully explored with lots of interesting comments. You may also find it useful to pick the bones out of Princess' own excursions and see what might interest you there and make up your own excursions. There are many companies who will do you there own or your own suggestions throughout Nova Scotia, and Quebec just hunt them out on the net. Each of the towns have a good tourist web-site and they are worth looking at Did you know, for instance, that Halifax has a bus called FRED which stands for Free Rides Everywhere Downtown. The weather can be anyone’s guess as you say. If there is a northerly wind coming down it can get quite cold but it's unusual early in the Fall. New York end August early September can be in the 80s (high 20s) and you can normally expect some rain on that New England coast but not a certainty. I would take, depending on how late you are going summer clothes together with a sweat shirt and some form of rainwear, long trousers and shorts and not bother with the welly boots. Good hunting ...

We cruised in reverse from Quebec to New York on Sea Princess and had a really lovely cruise with the ship food and company being fantastic. The weather was coolish but pleasant but you can get rain too I believe so pack a sweater and a light rain jacket we would go back as I thought this was one of the best cruises we have done. The canadians were lovely as were the americans - have a lovely time. We cruised late September early October - the colours could have been better but think it might be at it's best end of October but anyway it was great.

We cruised from Quebec to Barbados in 2005. The weather ranged from hurricane(Wilma) to blizzards in Boston and everything in between! Pack layers! the weather did not spoil the holiday at all.The itinerary is one of the best we have ever done.Ports all interesting,food as good as always,ships company excellent,and a captain with a super sense of humour. In fact we enjoyed it so much we are repeating the cruise in October.

Death on the Nile or is it Lif...

By Alana Mills

Did you know that 10 Years ago around 60,000 British Holidays makers took a Nile cruise compared to approximately 4000 in 2016. That is a staggering decline in anyones books and despite the troubles in Egypt a decline that no-one could have possibly anticipated.No one can deny that Egypt has had its troubles with the Egyptian revolution in 2011 leading to a coup and the leadership changing hands twice before the 2014 Leader General Abdel Fattah el-Sisi took power. There have been a number o...

 Thomson Cruises have made some changes in recent years and things are really working for them, in the last 5 years they have seen an increase in passenger numbers of 40%, with 20% being in the last year alone.They have always been looked down upon by a lot of customers, although unjustly so as their reviews have always been good. But with older ships and less of the pomp and ceremony of other lines they have been viewed as being at the lower end of the market.In 2016, they made a major ...
