We started our cruise by arriving in Boston 2 days early. Thoroughly enjoyed Boston, walked the Freedom Trail and stopped at several pubs along the way. We had dinner at the Union Oyster House and it was very disappointing. High prices and poor quality of seafood.
On Sunday, we left our hotel at 10:15 in downtown Boston, took a short cab ride, walked right up to check in and were on the ship by 10:50. Smoothest embarkation ever. This was our 50th cruise.
The service on the ship was exemplary. From our stateroom attendant to our (my time dining) waiter and assistant waiter (we were fortunate enough to have the same each evening), the Diamond Lounge were wonderful. The food in the MDR was quite good. We had excellent Prime Rib and the Lobster was good as well.
