Default Saguenay Fjord - Maasdam

I am booked on the Maasdam in September and am a little confused about something. Does this ship actually go up the Saguenay Fjord? I thought that it did, but the way that the day at sea is stated leads me to believe that they are just talking about cruising the St Lawrence, rather than actually cruising up the Saguenay Fjord which is a Fjord that empties into the St Lawrence at Tadoussac, Quebec.

Hello,
Yes the ship acrtaullay goes op the Saguenay Fjord. it is a beautiful trip. We were on it last yeare. You will see whales at the entrance to the fjord. They come so close to the ship. there is a narrator on bouars who will tell you where to look for whales and natures beauty spots. It is spectaculat. Depending on when you are doing it you might see us. We like this itienery so much we are doing it for the fourthe time in Sept.
We are Sept 18-29th on norwegian. We thought we would try their new ship Norwegain Jewel Last year we did Maasdam and liked the ship very much. It is an older style ship but full of ambiance and character. I am sure you will love it. You will love Quebec city whihc is a port of call. it is North America's only walled city and dates back many centuries. EVen the entrance to the port there is beautiful.
Enjoy your cruise

Thank you for the information, Haze! I have been to Quebec many times for the past 5 years but have never cruised up the Saguenay Fjord. I did a whale watching tour one time when I was in Tadoussac and saw lots of whales and also the entrance to the fjord. But we didn't go up into the fjord. Actually, I all of my trips have been land-based so far. I decided to do something different this time and cruise. You are right, Quebec City is wonderful! Now I am trying to decide which of my favorite places I want to have lunch while we are in port. . I will look for your ship. My cruise is Sept 17 - 24, Montreal to Boston.

On our 7/2 cruise on the Maasdam they skipped sailing up the Saguenay Fjord due to engine troubles, just couldn't do that and get to Sydney. Hopefully the engine will be fixed by your cruise.
