I agree as far as Charlottetown goes not much going on compared to the large metro areas mentioned in this thread. During a month on the island we may visit Charlottetown 6-7 times to eat at our favorite places. But as a province PEI is beautiful the locals so welcoming. The best times are July and August, with September being good to. Most places outside of Charlottetown are closed by the end of September. What draws us is the food, no crowds and the beaches...
Check out this fantastic aerial video of the many PEI beaches.

As far as going into Charlottetown check this
If a cruise ship will be in port on the day you plan to visit you may want to go another day. The town does get crowded when you have a ship in town especially the restaurants and bars.

Here are the cities I'm thinking about: Quebec City, Montreal, Charlottetown.
What are your expections or wishes to see in three mentioned cities?
Havent been to BC and PE but from all the Canadian cities I have visited, my favorite is "Niagara on the Lake".
