Second time we were on this cruise. Enjoyed the ports and embarking process. They were quick and efficient in Boston. Staff pleasant and hard working. Main dining food was good and service was great. Entertainment was ok but we had seen most of the entertainers on prebius cruises and their shows were the same. Cabin attendent was great and tried his best to help with the wet carpet isses (see cabin review). Tendering in Bar Harbor was disorganized and our tour was cut 30 minutes short because we left so late. Halifax was very nice and can be seen without joining an organized tour. Leaves were still green so if you want the vibrant colors, consider a later cruise. Weather was not the best but that was not anyone's fault. Bar staff was friendly and actually had a show demonstrating their "Tom Cruise bar skills". Enjoyed cruise despite of the cabin issues.

Cabin Review

Cabin 1538
Nice sized cabin and closet. Do not book if you are a light sleeper as it is very noisy at night. From 2-6am they are cleaning the deck above and setting up the Park Grill. They move all the furniture and it is very difficult to get a good night's sleep. Balcony has a water drain pipe and there is a constant water rushing sound. AC pipe in hall closet leaked and we had wet carpet first 4 days of cruise.
