Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Oct 2017
  • Destination: Canada & New England
  • Cabin Type: Superior Ocean View Stateroom with Balcony

We had never been to the NE US coast or Eastern Canada In addition, we wanted to see the Fall foliage and try our first lobster. We met previous travel friends who live in Boston and they provided us with a great tour of the city, Fenway park, the Freedom trail and Little Italy. In Portland we went on the firetruck tour and also on a lobster boat. Bah Habah was a real gem where we went on an Ollies Trollys and toured Acadia National Park and Cadillac Mountain. This is where we saw the only tree color change. We then hit most of the shops near the dock We also had our very first lobster at the West Street Cafe. Next, we took the public transit tour of St. John and saw the reversing rapids and ate lunch at the city market. Last, but not least, we toured Halifax. This was our only tour through RC. We saw the Titanic victim graves and toured the city. This was my favorite city on the tour.

Every embarkation and disembarkation went fairly smoothly except Halifax where we had to wait for approximately 20 minutes to leave the ship. The service by the cabin stewards, food service, and crew was outstanding; everyone was very friendly. Also, the entertainment was outstanding, with kudos to Paul, Tornado Tanya and Gemma.

The food was fabulous at every meal. The only problem was an odor that emanated in the Schooner Bar which we were told was due to a syrup spill. I also previously noted that the film at the pool (motor cross) was not appropriate for a seniors aged clientele. In summary, we definitely would go again if we get the chance.
