Disappointing Ports

Sail Date: September 2013
Destination: Canada & New England
Embarkation: Boston

Embarkation was really organized and fast. Ship was nice, we were in balcony cabin 9574. Nice views, Never met cabin steward, which we thought was odd. Room was always clean though. Hair dryer didn't work, got another one in an hour, refrigerator sounded like an airplane taking off at 2AM one night. Maintenance fixed it next day.

MDR was okay...ordered chicken off classic menu 5 out of 7 nights. Husband loved having escargot every night. Buffet was better for me, we had more choices.

Music was for older crowd. If you wanted to be asleep by 9PM or in Centrum it would be okay! Trivia was fun. Husband won $300 in casino. We spent most of our time there, nothing else to do at night.

Ports were small & boring. Nothing to do but shop, which we both don't like to do. Didn't see any fall colors at all, more in CA than New England. Cruise was geared toward older crowd.

We had the best time in Boston after the cruise. Less
