Main reason for choosing this cruise was because it departed and returned to Boston, no airport involved. We have done the Canada New England cruise before which is a lovely cruise at this time of the year This cruise exceeded our expectations. I have no bones about calling myself a "cruise snob", because I only like the newest ships, or so I thought. The Serenade OTS was a perfect ship for us size wise, a little worn, very clean and quite acceptable. This time we chose an OVC because of the time of year. It worked out great. Our cabin was near an elevator and dining room. Went out on our own when ship was in port. Hubby said liked so much and would have no problem sailing on again.
We reached " Diamond" status on this cruise and were pleasantly surprised with perks.
Will be sailing on the Anthem out of Bayonne in March and are really looking forward to this experience.
