Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Oct 2017
  • Destination: Canada & New England
  • Cabin Type: Interior Stateroom

Excellent staff and dining service experience was great. Ports are very good. Older ship but good size. Older passengers on this cruise 50 to 80 years old. Not for younger crowd. Activities and shows geared for older crowd. Could offer better selections for movies and shows. Friendly staff who pleased passengers. Go for the ports. Not a party ship. This ship was a good size. Never was too crowded even though ship was booked to capacity. So many choice on shore excursions. Many passengers told me they have been on this ship 2 or 3 times. We only had 16 children on our cruise. Probably 30 people in 20 to 40 year bracket.

Negative comments I have would be the staff taking pictures and trying to solicit dinner at Chops Grill. I heard it was an excellent dining choice but it cost more money. Also, two hot tubs out of 4 in the pool area were designated for children 16 and older. There were only a couple teenagers on board. Felt like one hot tub would surface for this cruise. Good value and great ports.

Cabin Review

Interior Stateroom

Very small but adequate. No longer want to live in a tiny house.

Great way to get around city. Took one and half hours to complete and if time, you can go around city again. Get off at any stop and buses run every 20 minutes to pick you up.

Peggy's Cove

Peggy's Cove was beautiful. Took 1 hour to get there. Lots of coves and fishing towns. Wish had more time at Peggy's Cove. Only had 1 hour there.
