Overall Member Rating
Destination: Canada & New England
Embarkation: New York (Brooklyn, Red Hook)
After checking out the suite, we decided to have lunch in the Golden Lion. All of our other meals were in the Princess Grill dining room. The dining room staff was exceptional and went out of their way to accommodate special requests. I felt that the food preparation was very good.
Our stateroom attendant, Euggie was very good in servicing the suite. I have no complaints regarding morning or evening service.
Ports of Call: Newport I arranged a tour on my More own with a stop at the Breakers. Boston I have visited many times and took the shuttle to Quincy Market. It was nice to just walk around. Bar Harbor, we took the ship's tour through Acadia National Park, with a stop for blueberry pie. St John, we walked around town. Halifax, we took the ship's tour to Peggy's Cove for some great photo ops. Quebec City was the highlight of the trip with a trip to St Anne De Beaupre and Montmorency Falls. Because this was a two day stop, We were able to do a lot of exploring the old town on our own. This is definitely a destination that I would like to return for a longer stay.
The on board entertainment was generally very good. We especially enjoyed the shows in the Royal Court that included the dancers and singers. I really enjoyed the Elio Pace shows. What an entertainer.
Disembarking went very smoothly, I contacted Arecibo and was picked up within 15 minutes for the ride to JFK. Less
I felt that the cabin was comfortably spacious with a wide veranda. This suite was located directly midship, which was a perfect location in getting to the elevators.
