    Nothing here was overstated. No touristy degradations designed to make money. The design was not infected modern rooms with all the amenities the discerning guest expects. This, in every sense of the words, was an Ice Hotel. The entire building-every wall, every entrance, hallway, room, the chapel, the entire bar, the seats, were out of ice and snow. The rooms themselves had a thin but very comfortable mattress on top of a solid bed of ice with lighting built into the base that you can switch on and off. An information session teaches you how to sleep in the rooms-which include the use of a negative temperature sleeping bag, where to put belongings to prevent freezing, etc. This session is mandatory, even for locals because-as the guide Sophie put it-when sleeping in a hotel of solid ice, you have to forget everything you know about staying in a hotel. The only belongings you really want to bring in the room with you are your boots, snow gear, and whatever you want to sleep in (they recommend synthetics, we used under armor-style thermals) any electronics have to be kept in the bag with you, and the rest, except boots, goes into a waterproof bag. The bathrooms nearest the hotel are essentially heated port-o-johns, so use the ones in the celsius building instead. How was the sleep? Amazing. Seriously. It's expensive yes, but people who didn't think it was worth the money, probably didn't spend the money. It is SO worth it. (note: the address they have listed here is incorrect. It is at the old zoo this year, in Quebec City. Also city bus 801 goes nearly right there and is only 3.00 a ticket, saves a lot vs. the shuttle.)

    ... on a rail. We haven't used it, electing to walk, but the people that did looked like they enjoyed the ride. We had lunch at a small restaurant & then spent some time in the "Musee De La Place Royale", a museum showing the history of the old city. It was very interesting & included in the $7/person entry fee we also got a guided tour of the surrounding 'Place Royale' by a staff member, dressed up in theme costume & giving his tour in character - Jean-Louis Fornel (one ...

Their (now clean) laundry was still in our cabin as I reminded Alison perhaps slightly too loudly….and much to the bemusement of one rather shocked gentleman standing close by studying one of the day’s restaurant menus. Perhaps there was more fun to be had on this ship than singing Ave Maria at the foot of a lead-cladded statue!

    ... British finally took over from the French in 1759. There was a lot of equipment around since the entire city was getting ready for Quebec Day this weekend and it was difficult to get good pictures. The lower town where the original town was established had become slums but was completely redeveloped in the 1960's and 1970's. It very much resembles Parisian streets with restaurants and shops. We had lunch at Saute Lapin in the old section which was great ...

    The god news is that back inside the fortified walls numbered items on the map are much closer together and we started to whip through them. Areas included the fortified wall walk, Old Upper Town, the Latin Quartier, then down to Old Lower Town, Place Royale, the Old port and Lower Town. We had an arrangement where I got us to the attractions and read the map (Cyndie is not great at this) and then I told her to ...
