... but it would have great to hear at least a few Canadian accents. LOL....Whoa, we Canadians don't have accents, but everyone else does. 😄
Every cruise is different, so maybe next time you'll meet someone from the next block. On our last cruise I met someone I dated over 40 years ago!

Surprisingly, we have met people from our area on a number of cruises - and have kept in touch with some of them for a few years now.
Our dollar certainly does have an impact. I do get lots of comments about how expensive river cruises are, but manage to book on a regular basis by watching for sales and having some flexibility on dates/itineraries. Now that our dollar is slowly inching up, I am hopeful that we will see this reflected in the prices.

This year we sailed with Uniworld. US citizens were the most common on that trip but we had lots of folks from the Vancouver area and from Toronto too. Canada was well represented.
