the cruise started with outstanding scenery at Acadia National Park.It continued with wonderful tours of small towns in Maine showing the local scenery and history. Along the way were a number of very interesting and beautiful places to see. The ones that stand out are the following although there were lots more that were almost as good.

The working waterfront at Belfast was interesting showing the history of the captains and the fishing industry.

Rockland was a super day with the Marine Academy, a trip on a lobster boat while they were catching their lobsters and a very authentic lobster bake on the beach.It was a awesome day.

The botanical gardens at Booth Bay Harbor were stunning. I love gardening and this was a wonderful example of a great garden that all would enjoy.

In addition the food on board was very very good. The variety was super and the service was outstanding.

The quality of the personel is the best I have seen. They catered to every wish.
