Review Summary

My folks are 80 and 85 and first time cruisers. This cruise suited them to a tee. We had a great experience. THey can not stop raving about it!.  THe Boston port was simple to navigate and getting on the ship was a piece of cake. Very easy for older legs. I thought they might have trouble getting around but not at all. WE enjoyed everything.

Food was good in the standard restaurants and service was impeccable.

THe excursions were also fun. Be warned however, in the Scenic St George excursion, they try so hard to gt everything in, they do not stop for  soda Breaks or a rest along the line!

Booked a room in the middle of the ship that allowed easy access to the main elevators so getting around was easy..THe casino blackjack tournament was fun . I understand however, that the odds at the tables were not in anyones favor.

THe shows were pretty standard except for the Elements which was fantastic. THat said, we went to all of them, enjoyed them.

I would like to see more cooking demonstrations

THe other thing that was crazy was that, in the past you could sign up for a ship tour that did not cost it is labeled an excursion for 79.00..I do not care about the laundry that much to pay 79.00 to tour the ship.

One last thought, this was a great pool .Deep and a walk in and out entrance that was easy to navigate for older and younger guests..Really appreciated the size and comfort of that pool every day.
