Break from stress
Destination: Canada & New England
Embarkation: New York (Manhattan)
Couldn't have asked for a more perfect getaway. I live in New Jersey so it was less than an hour to get to the ship. Checked in, which took less than 20 minutes, and off to enjoy New York City.
Ship: Was clean and pretty. Inside room was big enough for me and my friend never to get into each other's way. Packed pretty light because I really didn't want to do the formal nights. Food was typical of any cruise ship.
Staff: DJ Erica (first female I've seen) did a great job in the night club, went there every night. It wasn't really crowded because this was an older crowd. Actually the ship was nearly empty after 12. The two comedians I saw, Mark and Hal, were hilarious (r-rated). The hynotist had everyone hysterical. We also went and relaxed before dinner with Milos, the pianist, he was awesome. Shows were very good, when we made an effort to get there. Of course, Jorge the cruise director by far the best!
Ports: St. John - So glad I read cruise critic More before spending a lot of money to see the reversing falls. Paid $2.50 for the bus. It really wasn't more than small rapids in front of a factory. Halifax, Portland just walking around and shopping. Boston - went to Isabella Gardner's museum, definately worth the trip over there. The most beautiful paintings, furniture and artifacts.
Overview: Had a great time with the staff and have already booked this ship in December out of Miami. Would definately recommend. Less

Port and Shore Excursions
Great city. So clean and so much to see, just in walking distance. Isabella Gardner's Museum well worth the visit. Went shopping on Newberry St. Of course, I had to find a Marshalls.
Didn't take an excursion, just walked around. Went into a few antique shops and then walked up to the fort. Don't need to go again.
Cruise director self absorbed
Nice ship with great crew
A great way to see New England
It was good, but...
Home away from Home!
Last time on Carnival
My worst cruise ever
