Great Ports, Grand Ship, Gregarious Passengers

Sail Date: September 2013
Destination: Canada & New England
Embarkation: New York (Brooklyn, Red Hook)
Loved the ports of call. Newport mansions wonderful. Boston hop on and off, Bar Harbor the Nation Park, eating in a local restaurant, lobster yummy, St John not really much to see, the high tide waters meeting not awe inspiring. Halifax, you need two days, must see Titanic museum, and cementary, but if you have done those then go out of the city to the country, must see two small fishing villages, Manhony Bay and Lunnderburg(sp). Charming, Charming Charming.

Quebec wonderful, charming, picturesque. If you can do Tea at the Hotel F on your own great but the ships tour was awful tea and old pastries, two candies for 65 dollars!!Have to say the tour that goes with it was good. Great guide.

Getting off to tenders was poor, they should have it down pat by now.

Ship was elegant but seem to have a poor floor plan compared to the Queen Elizabeth and Queen Victoria. Not a clear cut floor plan to get to different places, they seemed to be More up a half floor, or around behind someplace or through someplace.

Wonderful people, gregarious, outgoing. Easy to meet people and lots of single people.( 55 to 95)

Many came just to dance on the wonderful dance floor. Many came year after year because they loved it, We met people who at had traveled 29 and 46 times on this ship!

Not impressed with the food. We had a few bad meals but waiters would have exchanged it if we had asked. Meat over cooked. Fish once was dried. Desserts nothing to write home about.

We had a code red out break of the norovirus. Crew very diligence in washing down rails, buttons, doors, anything touched by people.

All in all a wonderful delightful cruise! Less
