Excellent food and service. The 5:30 dining for this particular cruise made it difficult to get back from excursions and get ready for dinner.

Would have liked to spend more time at Peggy`s Cove and in the city. Unfortunately , we had rainy weather and no color change [which certainly is no one`s fault ]on all 4 of these days.

Boston, Massachusetts

Took a tour and went into Acadia but had no time to walk thru the city.
