A perfect fall cruise.

Sail Date: October 18, 2015

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

An enjoyable cruise to four friendly ports. Spoke to many fellow passengers on the trip and virtually all of them were pleased. Have been on a dozen cruises and can't recall one that didn't have someone complaining. Have already booked similar cruise for next fall.

Cabin / Stateroom
Our stateroom was immaculate and actually had more storage space than a mini suite that we had on another criseline.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Boston is always fast and efficient
Ship Quality
Ship is well laid out and ride was smooth
Destinations and Excursions
People in Maine and the Maritimes are particularly hospitable.
Onboard Activities
Service and Staff
Our room steward, Edie, was excellent.
Food and Dining
We sat at a table for 12 (#408) and our wait staff remembered and took care of the various dietary restrictions with ease.


The cinema is small, if you really want to see a popular movie, arrive about 15 minutes early and if you have a back problem, bring a pillow or cushion, the seats can be uncomfortable.
