  1. Saint John, New Brunswick was expecting 200,000 cruise visitors this season, starting in April. I love going uptown on cruise ship days as you can sense there is a ship in port before you see it. The air seems alive with excitement and I never tire of it. Having said that, I was dreading the cruise ship season this year. The thought of so many people from all over the world descending on our small city at this time was quite scary.

  8. You are correct in your guess that locals still refer to “the Falls”. In fact the only time I hear the term “rapids” is from tourism promoters. Even though rapids is a more accurate term, old habits die hard. We do love our “Falls” 😀
  9. I have reported babies in the swimming pool a few times and a staff member has asked the parents to remove them.
