Service and Staff
Great Waiter: Amine
Great Room attendant: Joy (room 10680)
All staff was very helpful & freindly
Food and Dining
Hit and miss: Some very good, some just so so
Easy to see that there has been cost cutting measures put into prep. and ingredients.
Disappointed: Upscale restraunts now have another up-charge for good quality. Won't do that.
Cape Liberty (Bayonne), New Jersey
Porters, etc. there make $40 an hour, don't tip the same as you would for other services. Shuttles to airport were not the best and expensive for what you get (service people at pier are very brusk, not professional.
Boston, Massachusetts
Portland, Maine
Bar Harbor, Maine
Saint John, New Brunswick
Halifax, Nova Scotia


Don't spend a lot of money for shore excursions for Portland Or St. John
