Review Summary

Ship and crew were excellent. However it is a very large ship and many events and activities were crowded and not well controlled.

Ports Of Call

Portland, Maine

Not a great stop

Boston, Massachusetts

5 out of 5
Shore excursion ran an hour late but rushed to complete on original return time. Big disappointment for a beautiful city.

New London, Connecticut

1 out of 5
Ship was scheduled for Newport but was rescheduled for New London, a poor alternate. Then the shore excursion to Newport was cancelled too late the night before for us to reschedule another excursion. Became a wasted day on board.

Saint John, New Brunswick
