Quebec City
Port Rating: 5+ out of 5+
Easy access from the ship to Old Quebec City is a huge plus. It is just like being in France!!

Halifax
Port Rating: 4.0 out of 5+
A downside here was that instead of docking in the main terminal area, we were docked in an containerized cargo area and had to be shuttled to the main terminal. Other than that, it is a fantastic stop - the maritime museuem, the waterfront, the Citidel, the public gardens, the historic cemetaries, walk up fish and chips on the dock. Our personal walking tour showed us a lot.

The weather was nasty on our day here so we did not go in as it was a tender stop. However, we have been here on two previous cruises and feel that the free shuttle to Acadia National Park is a huge plus.

Boston is a great stop - but the cruise terminal is a long way from the historic area and even with the $15.00 shiuttle arranged by Princess there was not enough time to really enjoy this city. A longer time needs to be spent here. Maybe Sydney could be by-passed and more time spent in Boston. Our time at Old North Church for a Sunday worship service, a NPS Ranger presentation at Faneuil Hall, and lunch at the Cheers at Faneuil Market Place made the day worthwhile.

Newport

A visit to the church that was the site of the Kennedy wedding, a visit to Trinity Church, and lunch at the White Horse Tavern made our day. Another great city for doing your own thing - walking to see what you want to see.

We stayed at the Hotel Edison in Times Square for two nights. The use of Grayline Hop On Hop Off added immensely to our stay as we used it to learn to know the city and to get to the 9/11 Memorial and to Battery Park for our trip to the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. The availability of SUV's that could handle six people and their luggage was a real plus at the Brooklyn Terminal
