DAILY CRUISE LOG

DAY 10: Quebec City, Quebec, Canada
Sunday September 16, 2018 – sunny and 78F
Dinner dress suggestion: Casual

 

Founded by Samuel de Champlain in 1608, Quebec City is situated on the north shore of the St. Lawrence River – strategically located at the confluence with the St. Charles River.

The city is divided in two parts – the fortified old historic quarter Upper Town on the bluff of Cape Diamond, and Lower Town at the waterfront. Not only is Quebec City one of the oldest cities in North America, it is the only fortified city – added as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1985.

Royal Caribbean Adventure of the Seas arrived in Quebec City, Quebec around 8 AM and was cleared for passengers to go ashore within the hour. The cruise itinerary gave an overnight in Quebec City which was a fantastic opportunity to use the ship as our home base while having the day to explore.

We had previously visited Quebec City for a few day in May 2012, and were booked to spend a few more nights in the city after the cruise. It’s definitely a city worthy exploring for at least two days pre or post-cruise.

As our days post-cruise would be fully scheduled, we decided to enjoy a leisurely day of exploring on foot and seeing where our wandering would take us. Sometimes it’s fun just to stroll and discover without an agenda – this was one of those times.

The weather in Quebec City could not have been better. Sunny skies and warm weather made the day perfect for sightseeing. Adventure of the Seas was docked in a fantastic location at the Le Vieux Port within a few minutes walk of entering the Lower Town at the Old City. Unlike some other cruise ships that were docked in a more industrial part of the port and needed shuttles into the city, we had a prime location for an overnight stay.
