Holland America Line last week confirmed that the St Lawrence River cruise trade to and from Montreal and Quebec will continue to benefit from its having abandoned Bermuda in 2012 in favour of moving the Veendam to trade to and from Quebec. Not all is well in the St Lawrence, however, as Royal Caribbean’s Brilliance of the Seas will abandon three 10/11-night New York to Quebec autumn cruises this year in favour of a number of shorter 7-night cruises from Boston that will sail only to Canada’s Maritime Provinces.

We also look at the $50 million in updates planned for Oceania’s three “R” class ships, to be precipitated when Insignia redelivers from Hapag-Lloyd Cruises next spring, and Princess Cruises’ latest $30 million spend on its Asian-based Sun Princess.
