Our dining experience was first rate. Excellent food (except the Chicken Cordon Blue was terrible).The waiters were wonderful. We took 4 excursions. Day 1 was Portland & Kennebunkport. The scenery was beautiful and we saw President Bush’s family compound. We shopped in the local gift shops and that was fun. The tour guide suggested we have lobster rolls & whoopie pies for lunch, which they are famous for. We found them at a street vendor stand & they were excellent. On day 2 we took a “Victorian Tour”. It wasn’t a good tour at all. We ate at Paddy’s & it was fantastic, esp the blueberry pie! Day 3, at St. Martin’s we visited an Irish pub & ate fish chowder at a local restaurant. Day 4 we went to Halifax & Peggy’s Cove, so beautiful. Also, Forrest Lawn Cemetery where Titanic victims are buried. It was a great tour.The ship was beautiful and we really enjoyed the comedian/piano player in the Scooner Bar. The guitar player in the pub was very enjoyable and we liked the ice skaters and the Love and Marriage Game. The late night adult comedian was really good and we also enjoyed the RC singers and dancers.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

  • Bar Harbor
    We were supposed to see celebrity homes but only saw one driveway. We did eat at a restaurant called ‘Paddy’s “ the food was FANTASTIC! Esp the blueberry pie! Other passengers told us they visited Acadia National Park and Cadillac Mountain. They loved those tours and we saw great pictures they took.

  • City Tour
    Our city tour included Peggy’s Cove, a Victorian Garden and Fairview Lawn Cemetery. The cemetery was interesting and the scenery at the other stops was beautiful. Our guide wore a kilt.

    The tour guide suggested fresh lobster rolls and whoopie pies which they are famous for. We bought them from a street vendor and they were wonderful.

    We shopped at quaint little shops, had a free beer at an awesome Irish pub, ate fish chowder at a local restaurant and visited a place where they make maple syrup and other maple products. They had free samples which were delicious. The tour guide was very good.
