Regal Princess

September 2016 - Regal Princess to North America

Terrific entertainment

Although we had driven to each of the ports a number of years ago, we decided to take the cruise because we didn't need to take an airplane, but could simply drive to the embarkation port in Brooklyn.  We had a beautiful sail away with great views of lower Manhattan, the Statue of Liberty and the Verrazano Bridge.  Our stateroom was extremely comfortable, the staff was outstanding, the ship,  especially the Piazza, was beautiful and functional, and the entertainment was exceptional.  They hired very talented musicians and they were very important to our enjoyment of the cruise. The negatives: the weather was not great and at least one or two excursions were in the rain; sitting on deck was not something we were tempted to  do.  We had also hoped to see some foliage, but learned that the trees usually change in the first or second week of October.

viewsue's Tips

Bar Harbor, Maine - Nice town. Could have skipped the bus tour of the park in the rain.
Saint John, New Brunswick - Trip to St Martin's was fun because we had a guide who gave us the flavor of New Brunswick, but it wasn't worth the money.
Halifax, Nova Scotia - Loved the immigration museum at Pier 21. They have a family history research center where the woman helped us learn a great deal about my husband's father's arrival.
Newport, Rhode Island - Schooner trip of one hour would have been enough. Historic trolley ride was ok.
Regal Princess Regal Princess - Don't worry about being closed out of excursions. You can arrange for similar excursions at cheaper prices once you get into ports.
