Setting sail from Montréal

Bilingual Montréal is Québec's largest city, a vibrant island metropolis with a distinctive blend of old style European charm and thrusting modernity. Architectural highlights include the beautiful Basilique Notre-Dame-de-Montréal, and the city also boasts the world's third largest botanical garden. Winters here can be harsh, but in summer the city comes alive with festivals, including the famous International Jazz Festival in June/July. Montréal is also a real Mecca for foodies, and can pose a serious threat to the waistline, with all manner of gastronomic treats on offer.

Our tip

Visit Old Montréal for a wander, but it’s very overpriced so plan to eat or shop elsewhere.

Don't miss

The onomatopoetic Tam Tam day if you’re around on a Sunday during the summer – go to Mont-Royal park to see, and hear, the drums.

Holland America Line cruises - MS Veendam pool deck

This classic member of the Holland America Line fleet, with an attractive capacity of 1,350, has recently undergone a major enhancement to bring her in line with the more recent builds, giving guests the advantage of intimacy and style.

What we love

The grand proportions of Veendam are enhanced by a Holland America Line art and antique collection worth over two million dollars. We do like the new Lanai staterooms, with sliding glass doors opening onto the walk-around Lower Promenade Deck.
