We had hope to see the fall colors of the north east and visit the communities in Maine and Canada. The stops and the ports and visiting the ports experience was excellent. We planned and did our own tours, which were not from the ship but ... Read more

We sailed Norwegian previously and found the line to have excellent service and excellent staff. Our cabin was great and the food was awesome (the buffett is still a buffett; but even the food there wasn't bad). The specialty restaurants ... Read more
