Ship Quality
Beautiful ship, clean, well laid out, lots of storage in the cabins & water pressure in the shower was amazing.
Food and Dining
Great selection, tasty & lots of it. Nice selection for meat lovers, vegeterians & a chance to try other spices & food preperations of other countries. Really liked the curry dishes. Liked the waiters doing the song & dance numbers.
Cabin / Stateroom
Carl was great & took super care of us and the two other couples we traveled with. Beds are a little uncomfortable after the 4 day, but rooms kept clean & super location for easy access to stairs or elevators.
Service and Staff
They really do go out of their way to help and make sure you have a wonderful experience, as hello Clo did her top 10 questions the staff is asked, makes you wonder if any of us have ever traveled at all. :)
Very good thought the comedy shows were great & loved the couples show. These were the only ones we attended.
The health class on flatten you tummy was drawn out and stuff that we read on the internet or hear in clubs, Thought it would be more actual exercises to do.
Bar Harbor, Maine
Did the whale tour WOW was that great. Zack was excellent speaker and you could tell he really loved what he does. He must he has been doing it for 20+ years.
Don't Miss: Whale tour saw lots of them
Portland, Maine
Very beautiful, lush and green. Cool temps was wonderful coming from Texas. Lighthouse was good, Kennebunkport a must see & the shopping was the best
Don't Miss: Must have a lobster roll & enjoy a local beer.
Saint John, New Brunswick
Very industrial city. Our tour got miscommunicated to us and we missed the trip to St Johns island. We did get a credit, but town over all not real exciting.
Don't Miss: the market under the tent by the boat had a lot of product & good prices
Halifax, Nova Scotia
Peggy's Cove was lovely, just too many ships in port at the same time and made it very crowded not able to enjoy as much
Don't Miss: Peggy's Cove & farmers Market
