We had a great time on this cruise. Easy getting on in Boston with a large population of New Englanders made this feel like home. We will go back!

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
The pool was very crowded but we did find some space nearby. There were lots of activities during the day and we tried salsa dancing one day. The cruise director and her staff was great. We went to shows every night and especially loved Justin Golan in the piano bar.
