This is our first cruise, over all it was very good. Please see detailed below.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
The 2 main restaurants served the same menu, buffet quality can be improved. We tried 2 specialty restaurants, the steak house was excellent, definitely recommend. The Asian one not so much.

Good selections of activities, some can be lame. Shows at night are entertaining.

Service and Staff

Very friendly and helpful. The room was cleaned twice a day.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Ship was clean through out and was easy to get around.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
We had a balcony room, and it was well worth it. The queen size bed is put together by 2 twins and splits up sometimes. It didn't really bother us and the bed, pillow and blanket are very comfortable.

Another city worth seeing. The old market is a fun place to meet the locals and buy their goods :-) We went on a bus tour that drove around the outer part of the city and to bay of fundy. The high tide is in the morning and evening, so if you go during the day, you won't see the "reverse flow" of the river.

A place that we would like to visit again. We rent bikes and toured 2 towns. A bit tiring but nice. You can also rent scooters. The process of getting to the island was long, we waited two hours. From the ship to the island took 15 minutes on the tender boat.

We were in a walking tour, which was very good. It's a city with a lot of history, worth seeing. Try the Donair and Putine at the pizza-corner.

We just took the shuttle to the shopping area because we've been to Boston many times. The shuttle was quick and came frequently.

Pros: Relaxed, free style cruise

Cons: food varieties
