Only some words to define this Cruise : kindness of the crew to the maximum degree, nice animations, unmissable panoramas, the islands de la Madeleine as a corner of paradise (hoping that it will remain for a long time ...).

I cruised from Montreal to the Isles, then the Saguenay Fjord and La Baie in the first week of September aboard the Vacancier. The itinerary leads back to Montreal, but I disembarked in Quebec to spend some extra time there. The ship itself has pros...More

We wondered what it would be like on this 5 hour crossing from Souris - not bad at all. There are man places to keep you busy, including the three decks outside. We frequented just about every area there is - quiet room, lounge, bar,...More

It didn't start out well. The lot crew at Souris were great. The loading crew, although polite, packed the cars in so that passengers had to get out before parking. When departing, passengers and drivers couldn't get in until other cars were moved. If you...More

Dear customer, first of all, we want to thank you for taking the time to share your comments. Regarding the armchairs, to accommodate all our passengers, it is not possible to install more love seats for the 5-hour crossing. For comfort, although in limited quantities,...More

I've seen the complaints about the bathrooms & showers in the cabins. Yes, it is an older ship (1973), mainly built as a ferry, so not optimized for "cruises". Also a bit pricy given the duration & ship. However, the friendliness of staff/crew more than...More
