The cruise was enjoyable, especially when we were near île Sainte-Hélène and in the old port. The portion down river was so - so since the industrial part of the port isn't that interesting.

What people are saying about St Lawrence River
Nice experience, I recommend to try it, the crew, the staff and even the customer service are excellent, helpful, kind and friendly I will come back for sure, only thing I didn't like is having to pay for a 2 month old baby, like all other children
Very good to learn about the city and areas surrounding it as well. And learning about what gets imported by boat and stuff like that.
The cruise was excellent, lots of history was explained and the sights were magnificent
Great excursion! However food should also be made and served on the top deck.
I love the trip. Guide was excellent. I like to visit again with family.
