Review summary

This was a family reunion type trip and it was perfect for us to be together and to see all the beautiful fall colors.  Mother Nature provided the beauty but she also provided some rough weather that prevented us from visiting St. John but our captain made a wise decision to not attempt to put his ship or passengers in jeopardy.  To be truthful, we sincerely enjoyed the addition sea day to relax and kick back.  It was much needed and truly enjoyed.  We all were anxious for our "lobster fix" and managed to squeeze it in in Bar Harbor plus the chowder in Boston.  Just can't get enough of the great fresh seafood.

We particularly enjoyed spending time in the Enclave.  We like traveling on the ships that offer this amenity.  It is so restful and relaxing.  Just wish it were offered on more ships.  The food selections were particularly good in the Horizon restaurants.  The carving meats were specially delicious.   We were disappointed not to have more opportunity for bread pudding and tapioca and other comfort foods we all love.  Just had to fill in with more ice cream.  In spite of all the goodies, it really is possible to eat hearty and still not gain too much weight.  You just have to pick carefully.  All in all a good cruise and an outstanding Captain.

Location on ship was perfect for getting to and from places we frequented but would definitely book a higher deck and avoid the obstruction. It worked since we needed three cabins together so we family members could travel back and forth via the balconies. Our steward did an excellent job keeping us supplied with ice and clean towels. A comfortable bed.

Ship tip

Be aware that a set of stairs are missing in the center elevator area so book accordingly.

Connie pauses to sanitize her hands before entering dining room to stay healthy The Sky Walk from below is just as impressive as from above. Family enjoys relaxed dining and fun exchanges in Horizon dining location. A great place for family celebrations. Everyone pitches in. Creative sayings greet you in the elevators and sum it all up.  Barely clearing bridge with Love Boat Song playing as we leave NYC A sight that stirs the heart of American alike.   The symbol that  meant so much Grand parents' reason to visit Boston.   A day to visit family not seen for awhi
