It was a wonderful experience, we made lots of acquaintances and a few close friends.

The staff was excellent and  we picked a great 2 weeks for sailing.

wish we had more time in Boston on the back to back cruise but we knew the itinerary before we booked.

It was very enjoyable time spent cruising

It was second cruise using HAL and compares with other cruise ships we have sailed with

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
I think more juices needed to be available throughout the day for people who are not drinkers, or coffee junkies

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
We did not use many onboard activities as we toured ports on excursions

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
We never need other than interior as we are there only to sleep and change clothes,if we need to see the scenery we go out on deck rather than look through the cabin view

Ship Tip

This was the smallest ship we sailed with and we noticed the ease of getting around and the lineups for meals and shows were much nicer than the larger ships.

Cruising needs more than one day to enjoy this historic City, We should have sailed from Boston return instead of Montreal return but the city is rich in American History
