  • Destination: Canada & New England

Ports of Call! Started in Quebec City and docked in Nova Scotia, Halifax, Portland, Boston and then to Florida. Our Cabin was situated near the elevator which was nice. The elevators however were horrendous. They were doing maintenance on 2 elevators which made it difficult but what made it frustrating was that the other elevators would bypass our floor with one or two people on them. This was a major gripe of just about all passengers. The staff was terrific. We had only one or two exceptions to that review. The Chops Grille was just okay. Giovanni's and Izumi were both fabulous. Exiting the ship at the ports of call could have gone better. In some instances we waited on long lines to get off. The shows were pretty amazing. RC dancers and ice shows were great. The Tenors of Las Vegas did a great job as did the pick pocket. Giovanni, the pianist was awesome...great entertainer...lots of fun.

We took a tour to Peggy Cove and also to Kennebunkport. Both were fabulous. Very informative and picturesque.

However, the daily activities were just so-so. Very repetitive. Coffee bar on 5 was good and had a nice variety of food. We chose anytime dining. It was mostly good. The Windjammer was okay. Desserts were the same for the most part and were just okay. The sweets in the Windjammer were the same every day. There were a few good things but probably not worth the calories. The one very positive thing was the staff. Most were eager to please and could not be more helpful. This was our first RC cruise. We will probably stick with Celebrity or chose another line in the future.

Cabin Review

Cabin Interior Promenade View 8609

The Cabin was quite nice. There is never enough storage however, we used packing cubes which helped tremendously. Bed was very comfortable and the view of the promenade made the room feel more spacious. There were two couches which provided more room to stack items and still have a place to sit. There was an odd noise on the last two nights...not sure what it was....tap, tap, tap....but not loud.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

Peggy's Cove

It was cold day but clear. The tour guide said that the waves were the highest she had seen in a very long while. She provided lots of information, very knowledgeable. It was a great tour and I highly recommend it.

Another great tour and tour guide. Kennebunkport is a quaint little town with shops that are mostly affordable. This was a combined bus/boat tour. The boat ride

was great too although it was soooo cold. Still enjoyable.

Charlottetown (Prince Edward Island)

We chose to walk around. Not much to see or do but architecture was interesting.


Wish we would have stayed longer. So much history!

Bar Harbor

We chose to walk the Harbor and shops. Ate lobster at Stewman's It was fabulous.
