Overall Member Rating
Northeast Fall Foliage Cruise
Destination: Canada & New England
Embarkation: New York (Brooklyn, Red Hook)
The ship was in great shape although someone told us it is soon going into dry dock. I am not sure what they are going to do because it looked great to us. The cruise was completely sold out but the staff was very organized and we never had to wait in line or didn't get to see a show that we wanted to see. I had read that this was a problem but it never was for us.
The ports were so pretty. We have never been to the Northeast and we loved it. Our favorite was Newport, RI. We loved touring the mansions but the town was very nice, clean and quaint. I think we would move there if we had jobs.........I can see why the rich people built their summer houses there. The only excursion I was disappointed in was in Boston. There is a lot of history in that town and I would have liked to look around and do some shopping. The tour we went on was on a bus and never stopped for us to take pictures and by the time we got back to the pier it was time to go. There were no shops close by so no shopping was possible. I was disappointed and would not take the bus tour next time. I would rather get a taxi to the shopping areas and have time to look around.
Overall, the cruise and the overall experience was outstanding and I would highly recommend it!! Less
The cabin was the same as most other ships we have been on. This was out 10th cruise and 4th with Princess. We like the mini suites with balcony the best but don't always have the extra money to spend. The ocean view was great. Plenty of room for the two of us. This cabin was all the way at the front of the ship and on deck 5. I was a little concerned as we usually get cabins in the middle of the ship. We didn't notice anymore movement that any other cabins. I would choose this location again. No obstructions at all.
