New England Cruise

Sail Date: October 07, 2007

Reviewed: 9 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

The cruise started in NY, then one say at sea, Halifax, Bar Harbor, Boston and Martha's Vineyard. The ship was the NCL Spirit and is an older ship. Tipping is automatically applied to your bill and we didn't think the staff was as friendly as they might otherwise be. Food was not as good as other cruise lines and service was slow. In Bar Harbor, you can arrange a tour of Acadia National Park through Oli's Trolleys. It's less expensive and less crowded. When in Oak Bluffs on Martha's Vineyard, be sure to see the cottages....amazing! We had gone on NCL once before and said not again, but the route and price changed our mind.

Pros: Great itinerary!

Cons: Too much "upselling" on NCL

Recommends Norwegian Spirit? No.

Bar Harbor, Maine
Downtown is quaint and the tour of Acadia National Park was great!
Boston, Massachusetts
Walk the Freedom Trail. You can catch a bus right on the corner where the boat docks that takes you to subway. Very easy and convenient.
Halifax, Nova Scotia
Maritime Museum of the Atlantic was interesting.
Martha's Vineyard, Massachusetts
You can take the Island Bus to Edgarstown and Vineyard Haven,. Both are cute towns.
Don't Miss: The Cottages.
