My wife Anne loves Lighthouses and had always wanted to visit the Peggy"s Cove Lighthouse. Also to visit Boston. This cruse started in Boston and returned to Boston. We flew into Boston with out time to tour the city, but had to go directly to the cruse ship. Getting on board was an easy task because the check in lines were well handled. We visited Portland, Bar Harbor (BA HA BAA), St. John, and then Halifax. We took a tour bus out to Peggy"s cove to see the lighthouse and take lots of photos. On our return to Boston we had time to tour the city before our flight left for home. The ship was great, well kept, people friendly and always willing to help you with any problem you may have. Anne and I had a great trip and are now looking to book another trip to the next item on the bucket list. I think Alaska.  bye

We enjoyed the on board entertainment when we had time to sit and view, but we were on the go so much that we did not spend much time with the entertainment.

Service and Staff

Our stateroom attendent was a great guy. He made sure we got everything we asked for. He was very knowledgeable of our cruse and ports of call.

Very nice room. With the large window we could tell when we were coming into port in the early mornings

Ship Tip

The Solarium had coffee and breakfast that was great, but most people did not know that until near the end of the cruse.

Tour the city by bus. We had a very informative tour guide

We road the mailboat to several islands to drop off mail and supplies. Got to view many homes from the water.
