I loved this cruise. All the employees and also all the passengers were friendly and fun to be around. This is a smaller boat so we all got very close during the cruise. The crew all came to know everyone by name. Being on this boat was a refreshing change from the big ocean cruises. Everyone got to know everyone, which made for a great atmosphere. The stateroom was bright and cheerful with plenty of room. My room had a balcony, which I loved sitting out on. Food was excellent and featured 2 or 3 choices for lunch and dinner and almost unlimited choices for breakfast. . My favorite excursion was the lobster bake. We all loved eating lobster outside with music playing. I can't wait to take my next American Cruise line cruise- I'm not sure where to go next- lots of choices..
