Boston
Port Rating: 5.0 out of 5+
Even though we are die hard NY Yankee fans we still love Boston (the city that is).

We pre-booked via the Internet the Old Town Trolley that will pick you up right outside the Black Falcon Terminal where the cruise ship docks. The tickets were $37.90 each. We got off at the State House Museum, which was included in the price of the bus ticket, and did a tour of that. Our ticket also included a Harbor Sightseeing Tour, but we did not have the energy to do that and went back to the ship.

In previous years we have gotten off at the USS Constitution and done that tour.

We have been here 4 or 5 times. This time we walked to Victoria Mansion and did a guided tour of her. I think with our AAA discount tickets were $13.50 each. then we walked around where all the stores are and window shopped and then finally hit a CVS and bought some things we had forgotten. After that we walked back down to the water and went to Portland Lobster Company to get our lobster rolls for lunch. After that we headed back to the ship.

Bar Harbor

As it was raining and this was a tender port, we did not get off. We have been here twice before. We have done Acadia National Park and Cadillac Mountain twice, so we made the ship our home for the day.

Halifax

We got off the ship in Halifax even though it was rainy and we have been here before. We walked up to the public gardens and then walked all around them. We walked back down to the ship past the Citadel and then walked along the water to get back to the ship.

Quebec City

This was our fourth time in Quebec City. This is an overnight stop. We did not get off the ship the first day. The second day we got off and took the Funicular up to the new part of town and walked up to Joan of Arc Park, which is all decorated for Halloween. It's part of the Plains of Abraham. We love walking around there. We walked back down via the Governor's Promenade walkway.

This is a quiet, charming place. It turned out to be a nice day so we walked all the way down to Victoria Park and walked the length of the boardwalk and back.

Newport
Port Rating: 5.0 out of 5+
Love, Newport, RI. It was a gorgeous day. We took the bus up to the mansions and toured the Marble House. We were there for almost two hours. It was wonderful. We caught the bus back down and then walked to the Black Pearl Restaurant for clam chowder. After that it was back to the ship.
