Great value I had a great time and would definitely do it again. The ports were well chosen, just the time at the ports could be longer. It was sometimes a little bit rushy. The food onboard is great, a final cake walk would be great, and thr prizes at the specialty restaurants are too high.the food there is great though. Overall, there is a good chance beeing again onboard NCL The staff is friendly, the entertainment was great and the bar tenders new their job well. However adding 20%on every single onboard service is unreasonable. Also the prices for excursions are far too high, you can make some excursions in half prize, if you do them by yourself. Both are things not related with the cruise, more likely with the policy of NCL. Freestylecruising is a good invention and makes the cruise enjoyable for everybody. Overall, well done and save sailings Read Less

wanted to see the Maritimes, hopefully with fall colors, but too early for that, up the St Lawrence was great, lots of little , villages. fantastic homes in Newport, must hv been nice to have money in those days only downfall was number of ports where you had to tender in, some were 25 min each direction ship was very modern, wonderful staff in rooms & eating places ate all meals in Garden Cafe where food was very varied and good dress was casual which I prefer , entertainment in Stardust lounge very good enjoyed Halifax, Pier 21 was very enjoyable ( this is where immigrants landed, and had a Titanic exhibit, weather was good, sea rough coming into Rhode Island, end of hurricane Dorian Did not leave ship in most ports because of tendering and I use a cane to get me around very happy with trip and will most likely do it again Read Less

I chose this cruise mainly because I wanted to view the fall leaves and also end in Boston, where my son is now living. It was an opportunity to visit family as well as going to new places and learning a bit of history. I am not new to cruising, but I will say I have not had these experiences on any other cruises I have taken. Norwegian Customer service staff is not helpful. My first tip off should have been when I called Norwegian's customer service before the cruise. I was double checking what the travel agent had told me. I had a late flight into Quebec and I was concerned with getting on board the ship if I missed the first day's last boarding time, which I had been told was 11 PM. The travel agent told me if I did miss this time, I could board the next morning after 9 AM, since the ship would not sail until after 5 PM. The Norwegian agent told me that I should have called them directly because I really did need to get on board the ship that first day and my travel agent should have told me that. I was so appalled that I called back and spoke with another Norwegian agent who said that my travel agent was correct and that I could board the following day in the event I was unable to make it there the first night. (I made it at 11:05 PM and got on the ship – yeah!) Once on board, you will have to figure out for yourself where to find things, what deck to take to disembark and the time to be back on the ship, etc. If you miss the one sentence in the announcement that tells you this, you are out of luck. They also do not respond to complaints. I did so in person and also wrote a complaint to them regarding my sleeping room and the noise. I was NEVER contacted by any customer service personnel. This is unacceptable. We were awakened every night by the cleaning crew in the restaurant that was directly above our room. This vacuum should have been used during the day when everyone was awake and the restaurant was closed. The Oceanview sleeping room was nice, the 1:00 AM wake up was not. Sydney is a stop that is not worth going to - there is nothing worth seeing, unless you want to take an hour-long trip (one way) and pay far too much money to see Alexander Graham Bell's house. We did not see many leaves turning color and we had assumed we would see them as the ship went along. Not so. You mainly see water only. No land. We did take a few hop off and on tours and did see a few trees with leaves changing color. If you think a tour will be cancelled due to weather, think again! If it is raining cats and dogs and you can't see anything out of your window, you will go anyway so be wary of timing and weather. You also have to go through what they call "customs" on the ship when you enter US water. Basically, everyone on the ship has to walk in a line and show your passport. This was a pretty big fiasco with the ship blocking most elevators to only go to the 7th floor where this was going to be held. We had people in wheel chairs and scooters trying to get to the 12th floor for breakfast. So - they had to go to the 7th floor, and get off, then wait in the very long lines to get back on to go to the 12th floor. It personally took me 40 minutes to get from the 5th floor to the 12th floor (and I walked up the stairs to the 7th floor) for my morning coffee. UGH! I will give credit to them for good food, great restaurant service, and good entertainment. If you stay somewhere besides the 5th floor, it might be something you will enjoy. If you want to view leaves, take a bus tour. Best Wishes! Read Less

Vision of the Seas Considered these days a “small” ship of about 2,400 passengers, overall I liked Vision of the Seas and my 12 day Canada/New England cruise Cabin I was on Deck 2 inside cabin. No complaints. My cabin steward was awesome. TV sucked. They kept repeating the same programs. I’m not a night owl and wanted to watch TV and read my Connect newsletter before going to sleep. I asked why the TV re-ashes the same shows, I was told because it’s an old ship, poor satellite. Really? Food: I’m not a fussy eater. Buffet had a good variety. Couple of times they had schnitzel, my favourite, was good (not as good as my mother’s). I had the late supper. I had great table mates but decided that will be my last traditional supper. The dinners were OK. My favourite meal was giant shrimps in herb butter. I’m not fussy on the late time and the early time means I’d miss out watching a sunset or I like being on deck when ship sails away. Entertainment Not to take away the talents of those on stage, the entertainment on ships isn’t what it used to be. I did go watch a couple of shows. Some I didn’t like but I’ll tell you which ones I did like. 1. Rookie. Four lads from Canada who were awesome in playing the songs from the 50’s and 60’s. The lead singer sure had a lot of energy. 2. Born in Argentina, the duo brothers of Mario & Daniel now live in Las Vegas. For the most part their materials were funny. 3. DUO Quintessence is an acrobatic couple who were awesome. She is from the U.S. He is from U.K. During their costume/stage change they had a video of them explaining how they met and their background history. 4. Horizon. Three men who sang Motown. They were pretty good. 5. Chris Bliss, a comedian, had people laughing On my last sea day I took a tour of the Majestic Theatre. At the beginning it was Q & A with four people involved with staging shows. The cruise director mentioned that Royal Caribbean is about the only cruise line that still uses a live band, other lines pipe in music. It’s nice to hear a live band. Embarkation/Disembarkation It was a breeze for me. On embarkation day, I got to the ship at around 11 am and was on within half an hour. Port of Calls Quebec City. This is where the cruise started. I spent two nights before the cruise in this wonderful city. Old Quebec is as about Europe as you can get and that’s where I spent my time here. Corner Brook, Newfoundland Cute town. Ship provided a free shuttle. After exploring the small town, I went to Corner Brook Stream Trail, not far from the centre of town. It was mid-October to enjoy some Fall colours, brooks, streams and peacefulness of the area. Sydney I stayed in the town, visiting a couple of museums. Jost Heritage House ($3) has a collection of ships and medicines used by early 20th century apothecary. Cossit House ($2) is Sydney’s oldest house and learn what life was like in early days of settlement in Sydney. I quickly looked at the oldest catholic church in Cape Breton called St. Patrick’s Church. The morning got very windy. I just walked around town headed to the library to use the free WIFI. I walked along the board walk. Before heading back to the ship I stopped at Old Triangle Alehouse for a beer. Halifax We docked at Pier 22. Beside us is Pier 21 which contains Canadian Museum of Immigration. Unfortunately I didn’t think I had enough time to see the inside to experience what it was like to immigrate to Canada between 1928 and 1971. From our pier, you can catch the hop on/off bus but I passed and walked along the boardwalk into town which took between 20 to 30 min. I stopped at one of the Information places and he recommended I walk up George St. toward the Citadel mid-way I stopped at St. Pauls’ Church and City Hall. It’s free to get into the Citadel since my Canada celebrated 150th this year and parks are free to get in for just this year. Saint John, New Brunswick. If you download a PDF file (Google “Saint John three historic walking tours” then you ought to get “Loyalist Trail”, “Victorian Stroll” & “Prince William Walk”). Now I didn’t follow the walking tours to a T but I studied my map trying to figure out what site was near another site and just followed my own route. I didn’t get to see everything but I did see most places in this historic city. Portland, Maine Another great town to explore, saw a lot of historic sites including the Victorian Mansion (did not take the time to go inside). I wanted to see the Neal Dow Memorial but when I got there discovered I needed to make an appointment. Boston, Mass. You can purchase a hop on/off bus ticket (but where my ship docked we had a very long walk to do that so I decided to get the ships shuttle (U.S.$18 return) which the bus dropped us off near Quincy Market. I did a lot of walking, including getting to Boston Public Library (what a fantastic building). I visited a few churches, Beacon Hill, making my way back to Quincy Market. Bar Harbor, Maine I’m sorry I didn’t book at home the 2.5 hour trolley to Acadia. They only had 1:45 pm time left but I didn’t want to take a chance because I didn’t feel an hour cushion was enough any case something happened (last tender was 5:15 to ship). I’m sure it would have been fine but … I just enjoyed exploring the town which has lots of inns/B&Bs. I also walked along the Shore Path, beautiful scenery. Before I headed back to the ship I stopped at Paddy’s, an Irish pub for a delicious blueberry pie. Rockland, Maine. I took the ships tour to Mount Battie (beautiful scenic view and we were blessed with a sunny morning) then off to a cute town of Camden where we were left for 2.5 hours to enjoy the town. If you are a shopper (not me) there is lots of shops. Personally I didn’t need that amount of time here but I went to sit at their harbour front and just relaxed. Newport, Rhode Island I’m a huge tennis fan so I headed to the International Tennis Museum and Hall of Fame. I was in the museum for about an hour. Lots of stuff to see here including history of tennis to lot of donations by the athletes including tennis shoes Andy Murray wore when he won his first Wimbledon, Novak Djokavic’s shirt, Bjorn Borg’s outfit and so much more. Plus they have different videos of parts of matches. I stopped at St. Mary’s church where John and Jackie Kennedy got married. Day was unusually warm for late October so the harbour front was very busy. Cape Liberty, New Jersey My cruise ended here. I had a late flight so I took the ships Manhattan tour. I had an awesome tour guide, Phil, who was funny and didn’t talk a lot or needlessly, just said the basics. We stopped at Rockefeller Centre where Phil explained about the lobby plus it was our pit stop too. Last stop was the 9/11 Memorial for about 15 minutes. When we headed to the airport Phil said he wasn’t going to talk so we can reflect what we just saw. Read Less

I chose the cruise for the itinery, which was great, although very tiring! But the ship was not so good, in need of refit, standards dropped, become very casual in fact. I think I was the only solo traveller, therefore no way of meeting like minded people. Princess only put a get together for 'independent' travellers on at 9am, to go in port together, but I attended, but no one else, as people tended to have arranged tours. I did find on last day groups of ladies on the cruise, & some x 2 ladies , but travelling together. On a previous princess cruise it was not a problem. Not many Brits on the ship either. Food quality not as good, in fact it was better in the buffet. Entertainment was poor quality, no special artists, like you get with other cruise lines. I won't be going with princess again, I was very disappointed. Read Less
