Overall nice cruise, but the ship had some problems. Two out of seven days with no TV. We missed having Ship locator on screen telling us where we were and miles travelled. Activities were few and far between that interested us.Some activities like wine tasting dinner and Lumiere Chef's Dinner overlapped. We could not hear announcements in our cabin. The Horizon area was well laid out so one didn't feel like it was a long cafeteria line. Nice touch. Lines getting off ship on tender days were well handled, however lines in port returning were excessively long with only 4 tenders running. Long waits even two hours before departure were hot and poorly maintained by Princess crews. No towels or water until actual check in point. Food in anytime dining rooms bland and often overcooked. Specialty restaurants a better choice. However adding Alfred's just made three places to get a pizza, how about a different ethnic cuisine option? Cabin has no electric outlets by the beds.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

  • Carriage Ride
    Bus tour of loop road in Acadia with one stop for photos and bathroom. Carriage ride at Wildwood stables, well planned with 10 people in each carriage seating was 5 facing 5 on hard wood benches. Guide was very informative and pleasant. Two horses pull each carriage. one hour ride. Restrooms available at stables.

  • Valley and Vineyards
    40 person bus drove out through Halifax for a quick glimpse. One hour ride to Winery. Winery only produced sweet wine which was not to our taste. Winery was a gift shop and an outdoor tent. No tour of facility or vineyard.
    nest stop was a drop for lunch in Wolfville which was a one street town. Stop was lunch on your own with not enough time to explore the town. Scenic overview was literally a pull off overlook a valley for 10 minutes, with traffic whizzing by. A one photo shot opportunity. No amenities except a Portapotty. Last stop was a roadside farmer's market with lovely produce, that one could not bring back on the ship. Good ice cream. One hour busied home in rush hour traffic, We would not recommend this tour.
