Review SummaryThis particular ship was simply charming and perfectly sized for us. We are 50ish and traveled with a parent that is 83. This ship was easy to navigate from stem to stern and top to bottom. The new Chops Grill was lovely, elegant and initimate - not to mention - yummy. The theater was extremely comfortable and no matter where you sat, you felt you had the best seat in the house. My Fair Lady dinning room was so well distributed and balanced you never felt rushed or crowded. We choose to dine in the Windjammer for breakfast each day and it was a great venue to start the day. It's placement on the ship is perfect. Allowing us to watch us cruising, docking, etc and yet offering a fabulous variety of culinary treats. This was truly not your typical buffet but more a marketfair environment with tremendous choices, tastes and opportunities to satisfy all. I have to confess - I also loved the touch of Ben and Jerry's being offered and took advantage many times during our time on board. The casino was well laid out with plenty of elbow room. We also liked the easy flow of the shops and wide open spaces and selections. The lounges offered such variety to allow us to feel like we were in a different venue every night before and after dinner. But I believe our favorite on the ship was it's Centrum which always had something going on. The design and decor in this area was simple yet elegant and once again easy to navigate. All in all a great experience for all.

Ports of Call
Don't Miss: Bay of Fundy reversing falls
Don't Miss: This tour is a must see but if you cannot afford the 7 hours to cover ALL the sites - otherwise, don't miss Peggy's Cove. It is one of the most picturesque places I have ever been.
Don't Miss: Old Ironside and Quincy Market are must sees.
Don't Miss: The charming little shops and waterfront.
Don't Miss: Lighthouses of Maine are too picturesque to miss
Pros: Everything...the ship was "enchanting"; the stops so picturesque, the staff was welcoming, friendly and warm, and most of all from start to finish (from CruisesOnly to Royal Carribean to shore side folks) all were such a true joy to work with and be with.
Cons: Wish we could have had more time and this was a 9 day trip.
