7 Night Canada/New England (Boston Roundtrip)
Sail Date: October 14, 2006
Ship: Jewel of the Seas
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 7 years ago
Gorgeous ship with lots of windows and glass in the public areas. Beautiful layout and decor. Cabins were efficient, but extremely cramped. We had a balcony cabin, but it was the smallest cabin of any category we've ever had. The bed was equivalent to a futon or sofa bed. Food was mediocre.

Henry House, about 2 blocks from the pier. Authentic pub built in 1850. Smells like ale and mold, but it's good ale and mold! Order the "Peculiar Ale:"

Stuffed baked lobster at West Street Cafe and blueberry pie a la mode at Donahue's. Good blueberry beer there, too. Skip the nachos, though.
Don't Miss: Local pottery shops near the park east of the harbor.

Gourmet lunch and Canadian wine tasting at the Dufferin Inn was pricey but fabulous. If you're a foodie or a wine lover, it's worth the $100+ and 3 hours!
Don't Miss: Bay of Fundy. Check it out in the morning and again in the afternoon. Low tide vs. high tide make it an entirely different place.

Seafood Shanty offered great lobster chowder and a very good view of the harbor.
