Default Price of Fundy Cruises

Hi: Am considering a Prince of Fundy cruise this summer to Nova Scotia. It is a short one. Two nights on the boat, 3 days exploring Nova Scotia. Includes a car and hotel. Has anyone ever done this trip? How was it? Thanks. Bob

-- I thought he meant it was gonna be a Fundamental Christian cruise ... of course, we'd have to skip that one! :-)

Hi Bob,

I've done the Prince of Fundy cruise (on the Scotia Prince out of Portland, Maine) at least a dozen times. I would be happy to answer any questions you may have; please feel free to e-mail me at budjanet@kua.net

For the sake of comparison, I have done nine "real" cruises, most on Carnival, a couple on Disney. I say "real" because you just can't compare the Scotia Prince, or it's sister ship, Bluenose, to a "real" cruise.

The Prince of Fundy cruises are a blast. We love them (obviously.) But if you are expecting something comparable to a "real" cruise, you will be disappointed.

The Scotia Prince is far smaller than "real" cruise ships. The public areas are not extensive. Most of the cabins do not have private baths.

But on the up side - it is a great time at a very reasonable price. There is show on both the day cruise and the night cruise; the shows are always fun and upbeat. There is a nice casino, little shop and a few dining options. The main dining room is serves buffets at breakfast and dinner, menu options at lunch. None of it is anything to write home about.

We found Yarmouth, Nova Scotia beautiful, but cold with little to do besides sight-seeing. If you are into scenic coastlines, it is paradise.

Again, please feel free to e-mail me if I can offer any more information.

Hi: Thanks for the response. I tried to e mail you but could not get the message to go through.

Your reaponse has at least given us a bit more confidence in what we we are paying for. Have been on one other cruise and have a Carnival coming up in April so we are pretty sure this Prince of Fundy will not compare. I am into a wild cruise but our good friends like nature and since I dragged them on the Dawn Princess I guess I have to go with them to Nova Scotia. You didi not mention about the hotel rooms. Where they nice?

Thanks again,
Bob

The line has agreements with several hotels in Yarmouth. The one they use first is at the top of the hill as you leave the pier - can even begin to remember its name. It was clean and very comfortable with a restaurant on property. This is just a sleepy little Canadian town and the hotel fits that description. It is nothing fancy, but very comfortable. The folks there were so friendly to us and we enjoyed our stay. But we were a bit bored. Get out and see the shoreline - beautiful - and some of the Canadian countryside. I'd do it again for a weekend, but no longer.

I don't understand why the e-mail wouldn't go through, but feel free to try again or post any other questions. budjanet@kua.net
