We wanted to do the East coast Fall colors cruise. This was the last cruise of the season, which led to a second cruise of the Caribbean. Stopped at most of the main east coast cities. Bar Harbor, Nova Scotia, Boston, NYC, etc.. Quebec was a wonderful place to start. We stayed there for 4 days before boarding the cruise and had great food and a great time. Quebec is a French speaking area, however my wife speaks french and many locals speak English. the Cabin was a typical small balcony. No couch only a single chair and small desk.
I have been on many Princess cruises.On this cruise the food was very bland. Both the buffet and the main dinning room were both the same---Bland. We traveled with a second couple and all agreed about the bland food. However the service was excellent. Cabin steward and all waiters were outstanding. Fortunately the Pizza stand was excellent. The hamburger, chicken and taco stand was also excellent.
The Caribbean portion of the cruise was a great itinerary. 7 islands in 10 days. My wife snorkeled on 5 islands and loved it. This included a face to face with a very large sea turtle.
Typical small balcony cabin. Only one chair. No couch. Good sized TV.
