What a gorgeous city from top to bottom. There are so many wonderful cafes and shops to see as soon as you get off the ship. We did not do any excursions but fellow passengers said the bike trip to the waterfall was excellent.

Quebec City was our favorite port and probably one of the nicest places we have ever visited. We walked from the ship to the quaint town, got caught in a brief downpour, and then took the funiculaire up the hill for even more shopping and a break for lunch! No need for a tour hereit's just too beautiful for words. There was even a harpist playing music along one of the main shopping streetsalong with a variety of other street performers and entertainers. Read Less

Beautiful city! We walked uphill to the Artillery Park Heritage Site. This is one of Quebec's National Park and Historic Sites. We paid $10 for our family to visit which included reenactments/period costumes on sight. We ate fresh baked bread from an outside brick oven. Tours were given in both English and French. What a nice surprise! We would definitely like to go back. Read Less

This city is an architectural gem. The ship docks right in the heart of the old city. We did not do any of the standard tours, but we did walk a lot. There is a ton to do and see, but if you want something very close to the ship, we'd recommend the Musee de la Civilization -- it's a wonderful museum with presentations in English as well as French.

Belle, belle Quebec! We had an overnight here and so had nearly full 2 days to explore. We had visited Quebec previously, so had prebooked a car from Budget in the old upper town which we drove out to Ile d'Orleans. Here we really saw the full autumn colours that we had missed on our journey up the New England coast, because of the warm autumn weather. Ile d'Orleans is well worth a visit, as it turns from very urban near the bridge across the St Lawrence river, where people commute to Quebec city, to a real rural environment where they grow wine grapes, potatoes, strawberries, apples for cider, as well as all sorts of vegetables, corn, pumpkins. We stopped at La Boulang about 2/3 of the way around the southern part of the island and had a wonderful cake and coffee. We also visited a Sugar Shack where they sell Maple Syrup products. Found a wonderful restaurant in Basse Ville (lower city) called Le Lapin, (The Rabbit), 52 Rue du Petit-Champlain, where they cook and serve rabbit in all sorts of ways. We had rabbit cassoulet and a rabbit pie, both stunning. Then maple syrup creme brulee for dessert with calvados, superbe. A word or warning for driving in Quebec on Sundays. It is a one way system that is already confusing, but on Sundays they close a lot of streets for pedestrian access, making driving very difficult. Don't use a car unless you want to visit outside the city and ask about road closures and the best way to get back to the Car hire place after you have finished driving. Read Less

I felt like I was transported to Europe. Beautiful old building and wonderful history. I wish I had booked a tour here; but we walked both the Upper Town and the Lower Town in the old part of Quebec City. Just gorgeous.

Loved Quebec. We just walked around. We would have kicked ourselves if we had taken a tour or rented a car. It's perfect on foot if you are able to walk without trouble.

Embarkation was very smooth and well organized. 30 minute trip to ship; arrived about 3:30 and had about an 30 minute wait to get on the ship. Baggage arrived at 7:00 pm. We spent the night on the ship in Quebec and it was right across from shopping and restaurants. The port is the gem of this voyage so take advantage of it. We took the Quebec Countryside Tour excursion and it was well worth it. A visit to Montmorency Falls for cake and tea, a visit to the Sugar Shack and New Orleans island was great. Read Less

Quebec was a beautiful port with lots to see. For the majority of our day here we toured and hiked the citadel and walked the shopping areas. For lunch we ate a tasty quick meal (Quebecois meat pie for me) at L'Omelette on Rue St-Louis. The best part of my time here however was getting to skate at the outdoor ice rink for (relatively) free. I only had to pay for skate rental, which was about $8 CAD for skates in poor condition - rust on the blades. I only got to go around the rink about 10 times, but it was worth it to say I skated in Quebec. Look for the rink near Le Capitole on Rue St-John, generally down the hill and west of Chateau Frontenac. Read Less

This was my favorite excursion! We took the walking and carriage ride tour which was well worth the money! Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and interesting. She kept the tour moving and on time. The walking was not too much and the carriage ride through Quebec very beautiful! We ate lunch in Quebec on our own and wandered though the city before returning to the ship. Read Less

Sunday was "Quebec Day". A local resident and fellow CCer (Julie) offered to guide a tour of "her home town" on the CC thread. We gleefully accepted and were delighted with her offer and our acceptance. She escorted 10 fellow CCers on a short walking tour of the "old lower city" (look for the 3D murals on the sides of buildings), followed by a funicular ride to the upper walled city and the world famous Chateau Frontenac. It was magnificent. She suggested a lovely and reasonably priced place for lunch (Restaurant aux anciens Canadiens), adjacent to the Chateau. Read Less

Quebec - Even though we had the most unexpected weather, SNOW, we loved this port! Yes, it snowed hard until 4:00 that day! The people there said that this is the earliest snow on record for Quebec (It was Oct. 23rd). We are from Louisiana and have only seen snow a few times in our lives so we loved it though it was very cold. For this port, you really do not need a tour because staying inside the beautiful Old City gives you plenty to do all day. There are many churches you can go inside, great little shops and great museums. The ship gave us a "Things to See" page for every port and we followed this for Quebec City and asked the locals along the way about other sites and restaurants to visit. We only had one day there because our flight was the next day so we stayed out from 8:30 AM until 8:30 PM. It was just beautiful seeing everything covered in snow. RESTAURANT - We ate a late lunch at Aux AnCiens Canadiens, address: 34 rue Saint-Louis - C.P. 175, Succursale Haute-Ville. It is located in one of the oldest French homes in Quebec City. It has excellent atmosphere, service and food. We highly recommend it. If you go before 5:45 you can take advantage of the lunch special for $20, a full course meal. Otherwise, dinner prices are $50 and up. Read Less

Ces't tres belle! It's beautiful and if you can't get to Paris, this is the next best thing. We had 2 days in Quebec which was wonderful. It gave us time to take a quick tour and then spend time strolling throughout vieux (old) Quebec. Be sure to eat off the ship. There are many great places to shop or eat. Be sure to visit Rue Petite Champlain. It's within walking distance from the ship. There is a free bus that travels around Quebec that is easy to use if you don't want to walk. A great place to visit - don't stay on the ship. Read Less

For all of us, this was the highlight of the ports of call. We strolled the old part of the city, appreciating the stately architecture of "New France", which in some ways is more traditional than modern day France. We enjoyed shopping here, getting some very nice, quality clothing articles. Later, we picked up the bus tour of the old parts of the city. It was good to get the background and history of the city, and this tour also took us up to the Citadel. When visiting Quebec City, be sure to allow time to do lots of shopping. If you do take a tour, make it a short one. Read Less

We stayed in Quebec City for 3 days before our cruise. The Old City is delightful. We took some interesting tours, ate some wonderful meals. I would definitely go back there.
