  7. Thank you for posting such a helpful review. I was thinking of renting bicycles if I did the Canada/New England route again. Your post will be very handy.
  8. Somebody recently posted, on the Holland America board, a very informative review for those who wish to rent bicycles while on their cruise. Here is the link: "ms Maasdam Bike and Boat review Montreal to Boston": https://boards.cruisecritic.com/showthread.php?t=2652106

    Best Smoked Meat in Montreal?

    Updating my own post about Reuben's Delicatessen at 888 Sainte-Catherine W. (2 locations with a similar name). Since I had seen so-so reviews this year, I went to check it out again before bringing an out-of-town friend there. Well, the service was nice but my smoked meat sandwich came lukewarm and the fries were too dry. So, for those who want to try a smoked meat restaurant downtown, I suggest Dunn's Famous on Metcalfe Street. The service could be better but the smoked meat was good and hot and I thought the home-made fries were better. On the other hand, I didn't try the deserts there. Here are the Trip Advisor reviews for that restaurant: https://www.tripadvisor.ca/Restaurant_Review-g155032-d781121-Reviews-Dunn_s_Famous-Montreal_Quebec.html

    Montreal pass? Montreal Museum pass?

    The Montréal Attraction Pass has a few museums included with other attractions. More info. can be found in this link: https://passeportmtl.com/ The Montréal Museum Pass has more museums included. More info. in this link: http://museesmontreal.org/en/passes/the-passes To choose, it all depends how much time you have and how many museums you want to see. One I can highly recommend is the Pointe-à-Callière Museum.

    Anything Québec (Quebec) City....

    I do not live in Québec City but here is what I found according to the search I did on Google map. The Notre-Dame-des-Victoires Church is in Lower Town, a 7 minutes walk from the Main Terminal. The Basilique Notre-Dame is in Upper Town, a 12 minutes walk away via the Funiculaire (elevator to get to Upper Town).
