This was our 8th cruise, first time with NCL. My husband and I are both in our early 50's. Our 26 year old daughter joined us.
Our cruise was from New York City to Halifax Nova Scotia, St. John New Brunswick, Boston and Martha's Vineyard MA.
We flew in from Nebraska to New York City one day early and stayed at the Marriott in Time Square..close to the pier. Took the NY city double decker bus tour for $41.00. It was about 3 hours but you can get off at several stops to walk around and catch another bus later.
