Sail Date: Oct 2017
Cabin: Interior

We chose this cruise to celebrate our 50th Anniversary because of the dates and itinerary. We were not disappointed with the New England-Canada itinerary but Fall colors have not arrived yet! We were, however, disappointed in several areas.

1) Check-in took much too long. Even though we were repeatedly asked to choose a port arrival time, airlines arrive about the same time in NYC. Therefore, hundreds arrived at the port approximately the same time. Lines were very long and took a long time to check-in.

2) While we all know and appreciate the Safety Drill prior to sailing, there was much confusion about the exact time and location to meet. Once it FINALLY started, the Cruise Director took so much time going over the details and scolding everyone to stop talking. It was very warm and we were lined up outside an open deck in the sun. Several passengers became sick and rushed inside as it FINALLY ended. Too long and not inside in comfortable surroundings.

Cabin Review


Cabin 4F

Very comfortable and clean. No chair and only a backless ottoman for sitting.

Biggest surprise, we were asked to choose morning or evening cleaning. We chose morning bc of wet towels, etc. So no evening turn downs or chocolates! Our steward was efficient but literally did nothing to in our cabin after the morning cleaning.
