We did your itinerary on Sea Princess last Sept/Oct. We always do our own thing and didn't go on any organised tours. Quebec is stunning and the cruise ships dock right in the centre so you just walk straight into the old town, and you can get a funicular up to the Chateau. The ships couldn't be any closer. In Boston there was a shuttle bus into town from the dock ( too far to walk) and we then followed the marked historic trail which we found interesting. It is easy to find and you can stop when you want. Boston is a big modern city. At Bar Harbour we took the trolley to the top of Cadillac mountain - well worth the trip but again we just bought our tickets in town when we landed ashore. I loved Bar Harbor - this was what I'd come to see. Some people went whale watching there but unfortunately didn't see any whales and were very sea sick which ruined 24 hours for them ! We walked all round Halifax and up to the Citadel - it depends how fit you feel - you could do a bus tour - we both like walking. We had a rainy day in Newport so there wasn't too much to see - might be worth doing an excursion from there as apart from the boutiques on the jetties there is not much to see. Although if you wander the back streets you can find some intersting old buildings. We also had rain in St John and the horse drawn trolleys were cancelled which was the only thing I'd wanted to do there. We didn't have enough time in New York to really see it - we will have to go back there. Enjoy your cruise .

Had you asked me a month ago if it was worth paying that bit extra for Royal Caribbean I would have said a few hundred pounds possibly, a thousand or more no way. Ask me now and I would say absolutely.For families I have no doubt that Independence of the Seas should be on the top of the list for your next cruis...

The time had finally arrived when I was going on the independence of the seas, we got to the port around 12 pm the queuing to board the ship and get our key cards were around 20 mins so not too bad, we couldn’t get into our cabin’s till 1 pm so not long really to wait. We went up to Deck 11 to where the pools were and some of the Bars to meet the rest of our group. The atmosphere was really good the sun was shining the music was on it was really nice and of course, I had a drink i...

No fly cruises have now become so popular. Each year, as the number of people taking cruise holidays increases, so too does the number who want to cruise, but dont want to fly. There are many reasons why people prefer no fly cruises. Here are just 10 of the more popular reasons.(1) We live on an island! No matter where you live, youre probably closer to the sea than you realised. So, its probably just as easy to get to any of the major cruise ports as it would be to get to an airport. Cruise...
