Fun ship and family, What more do you need?

Sail Date: August 2012
Destination: Canada & New England
Embarkation: New York (Manhattan)

This 5 night cruise was our second (first was Carnival Freedom, same ship size/layout) and it wasn't boring the second time around!

Exiting/entering NYC harbor is far more exciting than Florida, especially crossing Lady Libery, passing under the Verrazano Bridge etc. Sailing away and returning home were memorable moments.

Saint John and Halifax aren't exciting in the sense that the Caribbean is exciting, but whales were a big bonus! In Saint John, we tried the zip line too. It was a good first experience and not too scary, overlooking the Reversing River, in which we saw a harbor seal. Most time is spent on the platform, as the group zip lines individually. In Halifax, we took a tour of the citadel with a costumed Scottish highlander and strolled through the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic. We learned some very interesting bits of history in the process of admiring kilts and bagpipe melody.

From the balcony cabin, we spotted a whale, dolphins, shark, More flying fish.. glad to have had good binoculars. Sunrise and sunset were stunningly vibrant.

Food was plentiful and varied. 24 hours of pizza, ice cream, tea and coffee, room service, plus buffet and sit down dining with greater variety. Dessert was amazing warm chocolate melting cake.

Movies under the stars was cold with the fog and wind, but ok with sweatshirts and borrowed blankets from the ship's personnel.

Shows weren't that great, or maybe only I didn't appreciate constant skimpy clothes and storyline revolving around just sexual stuff.

Passengers included many children, and we didn't face any annoyance or trouble on that front. Less

Highlander Experience

Memorable Citadel, sentry, and tour, but walking was too much!

Maritime Museum

The models of old ships were built beautifully. We really enjoyed the Titanic exhibit.

Zip-lining

It was a good first experience and not too scary, overlooking the Reversing River, in which we saw a harbor seal. Most time is spent on the platform, as the group zip lines individually.
