Review SummaryGreat 5 day Cruise!!
We had a GREAT cruise and found the ship and crew were wonderful!! One of our better Cruises!!
Cabins: We had inside cabin on Deck One/forward. Not bad...again got a great price for this cruise. Plenty of space. Notice some vibration but not uncomfortable. Didn't get a basket of goodies...but room was clean. Room stewards were good...very quick in cleaning and got the famous towel animals every night!
Food: Great! in London Dining room-upper floor. Great service from waiter...always a smile! Had great table mates (Bill and Katie). We sat at a table for 8 but only the 4 of showed up! Best meal for me was the Lamb chops and prime rib! Buffet food was good and pizza plentiful and grill great! Hot Pastrami.........yummy!!
Entertainment: We really enjoyed the shows. Big productions...great customes and set designs. Jorge the cruise director was sick so we only really saw him on the 1st night and last day. What little we saw of him...was very funny.
Saint John: We decided not to book anything via the ship and try our luck off the ship. EVERYBODY is so friendly. Our plans was to hang around town. The greeters very helpful...she told us to take a city bus to Reversing Falls (2.50 pp). Interesting spot....try to see the little movie there...very informative about the falls (in the restaurant). We walked back, took about 50 mins...glad we took the bus there...up hill going...easy walk going back. We then went to the City Market. Interesting mix of local foods and crafts. Tried the dried seaweed....!!!
Again...the locals were very friendly. We booked the Hop on/Hop off bus on the ship. Cheaper then booking in port... Nice informative tour but not worth the cost (49.00)...we got off the Maritime Museum (great exhibit on Titantic). We went to Keith Brewery and decided to go the restaurant (Red Stag) there vs taking the tour (26.00). DH got a beer sampler and I got the corn chowder...very good!!! The weather was cool and rainy off and on. We decided to walk back to the ship and wished we did that instead of taking the bus tour. If the weather was better we would have tired to see Peggy's Cove
Overall the ports were nice....would have been better if weather was cooperating.
Tip: Check out the secrect decks on 9th and 10th floors all the way forward (doors in between 2 cabins). Great spot to veiw the Statue of Liberty...starboard side.
