Review summary

We spent 3 days in Montreal prior to Our Cruise, this gave Is time to experience the Beautiful City, Embarkation on the ship was fast & easy ( especially when you check in Online & order excursions prior). 

 Our room ( 540) was larger than I expected! It was located on the Main deck. I asked my travel agent to also have our room near the self serve laundry ( Hate bringing dirty clothes home!) We were 3 doors down & across from one! Our room Steward was friendly & Helpful! In fact all of the Staff from Steward, Barista, Dining, Desk, etc,We're Great! 

 Our food was Good & had many Healthy options. ( salad bar on Lido deck). We enjoyed Movies in the Theater ( 7 & 10 pm). Explorations with The Fab Barista( Angeline) & library were enjoyable. The were t many children onboard,,Thank goodness! Our Excursions were fun! Not many were scheduled too Early( we are on vacation after all!😊) Our trip was relaxing & the ports were interesting! 

 Debarkation was Easy! We were Staying in Boston for a few days & Doubletree Bayside hotel had a shuttle pick us up!

Only Cons,,Expensive Internet! And if you pay,,you can't use Netflix! ( you could borrow a DVD from front desk)

When we pulled into ports, folks rushed into the terminals for Free Wi-Fi! Lol!

We enjoyed ourselves & we are frequent Cruisers,,Good Job to Holland America
