Review summary

I would rate the cruise as fair, compared to many other cruises we've been on. I would suggest better dining options like not having to stand in line to check in for dinner, then going to a different floor for the restaurant.

Very crowded,as expected, but a lot of yelling out instructions.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
Ship was clean, but everyone seemed to be lost because of the poor design of the ship. Restaurants were shown on the map as floor 3/4. We were constantly confused as to what floor to go to for the restaurant we wanted.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
The room was very comfortable with plenty of space for our clothes and luggage. One night our room was not completely cleaned. The bathroom was not cleaned, so we had to call for towels.

Ship tip

If you're looking for a party ship, this is for you.

Ports of call

Brooklyn, New York

Only for boarding.

Boston, Massachusetts

3 out of 5
Boston is wonderful, but the tour was substandard. The tour guide wasn't very good, making a lot of side remarks, like about a group of men walking down the street dressed in suits and ties. We went by Boston Common, but she didn’t actually tell us that it was Boston Common. When I asked her about it, she just said, "we'll everyone knows it's Boston Common".

Portland, Maine

5 out of 5
Excellent tour. I would recommend it to everyone. Good tour guide, and a very picturesque area.

Saint John, New Brunswick

4 out of 5
Beautiful tour, we stopped at a lighthouse and had plenty of time to explore the area.

Halifax, Nova Scotia

5 out of 5
Best excursion of the whole trip. We had a very knowledgeable tour guide, a d a wonderful tour of the gardens.

We had to wait quite a while for an elevator. We expected it to be crowded, but it seemed as though one of the elevators wasn't working at all.
