Sail Date: Oct 2015
Cabin: Cloud 9 Spa Suite

We loved all the staff we came in contact with, everyone had smiles on their faces! You could tell each of them really loved what they did! They made it fun!

We were disappointed in the quality of the ship, the condition it was in, and some of the things offered that weren't full quality (like the spa area not working often, the spa suite wasn't anything special like it was advertised, and the dining areas were poorly decorated in my opinion).

The entertainment, especially the comedy by Lucas and the Piano Bar with Christine was great! The dancers were all on top of it and didn't miss a beat, they amazed me! I love that there is a live band still.

Cabin Review

Cloud 9 Spa Suite

Cabin SS

We thought there would have been more to this "spa" suite. It wasn't spa like and the toiletries were loaded with perfume smell that is not like a spa to have that kind of stuff. I was hoping for natural spa smelling things. Wasn't a "deal" to stay in it other than having a bathtub, we had to ask for towels and robes a couple times. I wish it had spa colors in the room.

Port Reviews


We enjoyed walking around, grabbing an appetizer and drink at a few places here.

Portland (Maine)

Great local artist vendors just off the ship! GREAT weather!


The Best of Halifax tour was great! We had a past history teacher and she knew her stuff for sure!

Saint John (New Brunswick)

We sad the Moosehead Beer Crawl was canceled on us about 9pm the night before, too late to plan anything else. We took a 4 mile walk to the rapids and with the construction isn't wasn't too fun, but was nice to walk. We got a private tour from friends later and LOVED the beautiful city though! A must visit. Lots of free stuff to do.

New York (Manhattan)

Take a taxi in, very easy to get into the port, if Priority they are VERY nice and had food and smiles for us!
