I chose this cruise due to no solo supplement for the 7 night Canada New England Sept cruise! I was also on the Crown in June for Norway. It is an older ship and needs work.
I was very disappointed regarding both the Lotus spa pool and the Thermal Suite. On both of my cruises, the spa pool was closed numerous times supposedly for mechanical issues. I seemed to get different answers depending on which staff member I spoke to. Very disappointing! As for the Thermal suite, there was often people there that hadn't paid for the service. On one occasion, a couple came in in street clothes (jeans & running shoes) and proceeded to lay down on the thermal beds. It took about 10 minutes to get staff to remove the couple and then another 10 minutes to clean thermal beds. On 2 separate days when I went to use steam room, it was not working. Lady at front desk didn't seem to care!
Love this cabin! Very convenient location.
Enjoyed 4 days in New York prior to cruise! There is a new ferry service from right beside Red Hook (Brooklyn) cruise terminal to Wall Street in Manhattan.
Privately booked Fenway Tour, then walked part of Freedom Trail.
Rented a car from Avis (less than 5 minute walk from ship) and drove to St Martin Caves, covered bridges and Fundy Trail Parkway.
Walked along waterfront boardwalk and took ferry across to Dartmouth for view of Halifax skyline.
I walked the entire Cliff Walk after a morning excursion on a schooner.
