We did use the pre-cruise package and enjoyed a little bit of Boston before embarking on our cruise. I would recommend that to everyone. We have done one other trip with this cruise line and we have found them to be outstanding in what they do. Service is magnificent!! You feel like you are their only priority when you are in need of something. If there is something not on the menu, for example, you can speak with the chef or dining service personnel and see if it is possible to obtain that item at the next port.
We have recommended this cruise line to all our friends.
Everything was run so efficiently from the time we boarded until the time we left. I was amazed as the organization that was used in getting everyone on and off the ship, for example. Our luggage was taken care of for us prior to leaving and was delivered to our stateroom promptly. Likewise, when it was time to leave, our luggage was tagged and taken to the place where we were to meeting our next mode of transpiration.
We have already booked our next cruise with American Cruise Lines and look forward to spending 11 days and 10 nights with them again!
An absolutely wonderful room. The only drawback was that since we were at the very back of the ship, we did get some of the engine noise, but I wasn't really bothered by it.
The private balcony was roomy and had plenty of room for a small table and two chairs. The patio doors going out to the balcony were amazing! The view from the room was not hindered by anything.
