Favorite - food excellent, cabin w/balcony very nice and clean, and entertainment good. Staff was excellent. Service was outstanding.
Shore Excursions - the tour guide only let us off for 20 minutes for lunch and and 10 minutes to see the Sea Caves at Bay of Fundy - so we didn't walk to the caves - not enough time - the tour guide was more interested in getting ahead of the other tour busses - this was a waste of money, although the tour guide gave us a good history along the 3 1/2 hr tour. Too much time on a bus.
Lots of photo opportunities when we were on our own
We loved the hop on hop off busses.
Bar Harbour town was gorgeous - rent a car or take a hop on/off bus.
Halifax was not so great - not much in this big city to see, but nice waterfront area. We took a private tour to McNabs Island - fascinating.
St John NB was ok, but not that great of city. Tour was a waste of money
Portland Maine - very nice city and picturesque.
MUSIC on the SHIP WAY TOO LOUD - especially in the CENTRUM of ship, it travelled up into our rooms on every floor...TURN IT DOWN.

Sales at the SHOPS - $10 sale was pretty good. I wish they sold ROYAL CARRIBEAN LOGO polo shirts - only had a few tee shirts . Entertainment was good each night. Loved Karen Grainger impressionist.
BOSTON is amazing - allow at least 2-3 days to see this gorgeous historic city by subway - easy .
