Great cruise, great ship

Sail Date: May 2017
Destination: Canada & New England
Embarkation: Boston
The crew was the happiest and most helpful of any cruise I have been on in a long time. We had easy embarkation and debarkation. There was always something great to eat at every meal and the food was prepared well. They even had lobster and prime rib on the buffet on nights that it was in the dining room for those who preferred eating in the buffet. The pizza was better than that on most cruise lines also. My favorite dessert is either apple, cherry, peach, berry or fruit cobbler with vanilla ice cream and this was available every night.

We enjoyed the entertainment. They had a great comedian one night and a terrific comedian juggler another night. The shows were very good also.

The air conditioning worked great (of course we were in Canada) and we had to turn it down halfway. Quebec and Bar Harbor were the highlights of the cruise. I would recommend this itinerary to anyone except those who just want to sit on a warm beach and take it easy. Less
