USA, Maine – Bar Harbour and Acadia National Park; last day of the Seabourn Quest cruise

Well I am finally departing the lovely Seabourn Quest after a wonderful trip covering a small part of Iceland (got to go back there for more), a lot of Greenland, and then a number of smaller locations in Canada’s Eastern provinces – Newfoundland, Nova Scotia, Quebec and PEI. Finally entered US waters and had one stop in Bar Harbour – before disembarking in Boston.

Bar Harbour is a cute seaside town with an attractive harbourfront, some sumptious hotels and houses (even the birdhouse is plush!) plus more great lobster rolls!

The famous spot to visit in Bar Harbour is Acadia National Park – I took the free trolley bus there and it stops at loads of places so you can stay on it or get off and do some walking and then pick it up again later. Fab place and would love to go back in the Fall sometime in the future.

Then time so say goodbye to Seabourn Quest – my home from home. Lots of food and music for the final sail away night.

Greenland – back on Seabourn Quest cruising around Greenland.

After being thwarted in our attempts to disembark onto Haimey Island in Iceland (due to rough waters) I was ready to move on and and get ready to experience Greenland. Another new country for me and officially the coldest one in the world.

It’s great to be back on Seabourn Quest and now I’m starting to know some of the staff. So far we’ve had both a sashimi (big slabs of tuna and salmon) plus a caviar evening as we cruised through Prins Christian Sund. Spectacular scenery at every turn culminating in a finals stretch of magnificent (and menacing) mountain peaks.
