Food and Dining
Not wild about the food. It was just not that tasty and there were extra charges in dining room for filet mignon and I had never seen that before on a cruise. Windjammer was same old food, too much curry, pizza too cheesy, just not wonderful
Service and Staff
Lorenzo in the champagne bar was great as was Rosselino and AMal in dining room. Also loved our cabin attendant Lloyd, super efficient and so affable.
Good, but too many trivia games, what happened to jeopardy and pictionary. The "Unexpected Boys" who did a Jersey boys type musical were great. The love and marriage game was hilarious
Cabin / Stateroom
We had a wonderful stateroom, right in front of ship with two HUGE windows and over 300 square complaints
Ship Quality
So clean and well maintained. Lovely decor, a little of a bottleneck in some areas
Portland, Maine
Portland is a very charming site, but our lighthouse tour was just so, so.
Don't Miss: Hit the downtown area and the great bars....lots of breweries
Saint John, New Brunswick
Very rainy miserable day, but we enjoyed seeing the bay of fundy
Don't Miss: bay of fundy
Halifax, Nova Scotia
Best port of all....we took a walk up the hill to the Citadel and spent a lot of time there...didn't have enough time to go to Maritime Museum. Peggy's Cove was nice but I think I would have spent more time in the town of Halifax
Don't Miss: Citadel
Bar Harbor, Maine
The waste of time was visiting the College of the Atlantic and going to hear the lobster guy...would have liked more time iin Acadia park at the top of mountain
Don't Miss: Cadillac mountain view was great
