We expected to enjoy this Fall Foliage Cruise with views of colorful scenery and picturesque villages. Our mistake not realizing we were cruising at night, and in ports 10 days.. The only way to see anything was to go on excursions,several disappointing, otherwise spent the time in Port Villages....mostly the same shops. The Excursion to Peggy's Cove was very good...great Guide. Kennybunk Port....not so good..disappointed. Ft.Lauderdale tour was great, and Guide, Lauri was fantastic. Flight from Atlanta was canceled (mechanical trouble), and United Air Lines did a very poor job rescheduling us. With this in mind, I would always plan to get to departing port city a day early.

Cabin / Stateroom
There were 3 of us...crowded, but we expected that...would be easier if the pull out bed was near the balcony, rather than by the bath. Our Cabin Attendant, Huayonie Webster was great and did everything possible to make us comfortable....
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Very easy both on & off.
Ship Quality
Very clean, easy to get around, I think I prefer the next size ship with a little more activity areas.
