"This was my first solo vacation, my first time staying on any kind of ship, and my first trip to Maine. I loved everything about the experience. Every meal was incredibly, amazingly good—one of the best parts of the trip."

"This cruise is an outstanding value that we’ll certainly do again next year. If you’re looking for the all you can eat buffet with thrill rides and water slides, then this will not be your venue. However, if you want a laid back, relaxing cruise, on a historic sailing vessel, with outstanding food and great company, then look no further!"
