We took this cruise the final week it is offered; it was too late for any fall foliage, so the title was a misnomer. The cruise was  filled with those using canes, walkers, wheelchairs &/or motorized scooters.. very few younger cruisers were aboard. Those thinking about taking this particular cruise should be forewarned about both these facts.

  The ship is a fine one and the staff is terrific- to a fault,each one is wonderful. The entertainment was first class every night. The meals were innovative...a different countries' theme each evening, and overall was very good. 

   In short I would recommend taking this cruise early in the season. Although I enjoyed the trip I would not take it again.

Onboard Activities

There wasn't much to do onboard because while at sea the weather was rough and the top decks were off limits.

Our shower curtain had to be fixed, the soap dish in it broke, the safe wouldn't open three times, and the entire heating system had to be rebuilt, encompassing 3 days of work.

Another gorgeous, sunny day. It shows what can be done when you have a waterfront.
