We picked this cruise because we'd never been to the New England Islands. The brochure said Providence to Providence. But the dock in Providence was damaged last year and American Cruise Lines is using a very unattractive dock in an industrial area of Fall River. A 40 minute bus ride away. That was just the beginning of problems. We embarked on a Saturday. Our bathroom fan screeched. It sounded like a bearing had gone out. The lady came and removed the fan right away. But said she couldn't fix it until Sunday. No repair on Sunday. So I told Andy, the "Hotel Manager" again on Monday. He said he would go have it fixed "right now". Nothing was done. On Tuesday, I told the Cruise Director again. It was finally repaired on Monday. The food and dining room staff were great. But the engines are very noisy and a propeller or shaft may have been damaged. There was inordinate vibrations. The entertainment was pretty bad. Not at all a "luxury" cruise or worth the money. Avoid at all cost.

They called it a "balcony". Ridiculous. It was about the size of a postage stamp.
