VIA Rail’s “The Ocean” from Halifax to Montreal

Posted on Updated on


David and I ready to board "The Ocean" in Halifax

Overall, our experience on “The Ocean” was a step down from “The Canadian” between Vancouver and Toronto. The ride is smoother, but the sleeping compartment had remarkably poor seats [we were able to get extra pillows, which helped]. The shower on our return was uncontrollably near-scalding. The scenery was also less interesting.

I think I got “spoiled” by the stellar “flagship” out west.
