From the Big Apple to New England/Canada: Carnival Triumph Cruise Review by Thoth
Overall Member Rating
From the Big Apple to New England/Canada
Destination: Canada & New England
Embarkation: New York (Manhattan)
Ports of call were Boston, Portland ME, Saint John NB, and Halifax NS. All were wonderful places to visit. In Boston I visited Lexington/Concord & Harvard where I was impressed by historical ambiance of the architecture. In Portland I took the ship tour up to New Hampshire's Mount Washington. New England seems to be one picture perfect town after another. The people of Canada's Atlantic Provinces were perhaps the most gregarious of any ports of call that I have visited. It was a mutual pleasure conversing with the locals in both New Brunswick and Nova Scotia. Out of Saint John, I toured Fundy National Park where the world's highest tides can reach 39 feet. Halifax needs no shore excursion having so much within walking distance. The hill-top fortress and board walked waterfront are worthwhile. I did take a bus ride out to Peggy's Cove which is lovely beyond words. All things considered, I can highly recommend both the Triumph and the New England/Canada itinerary. Less
Crowded and noisy!
Very nice 5 day cruise
Second Cruise, first on Triump...
