Cruise Line: Princess Ship: Caribbean Princess Length of Cruise: 7 days Departure Port: New York City
Excursions: Boston is sometimes called the “Cradle of American Independence” and has so many historic sites all over the city that it was hard to choose what to visit in the time we were in port. We took a bus tour of historic Boston and Cambridge, walked through Harvard Yard, visited the Old North Church and Paul Revere Square and then walked a portion of the Freedom Trail. The Freedom Trail is a 2.5 mile trail which takes you to see about 16 of Boston’s most historical places. All you have to do is follow the red brick path! We had the option of staying in Quincy Market where we could shop and eat lunch and then take the shuttle bus back to the ship. Since the tour had lasted about 3.5 hours, it sounded like a good idea to go back to the ship.
Departure: The ship set sail for Bar Harbor during our dinner. We hardly knew we were moving because we were studying the menu that was so varied it was hard to decide what to pick. It was fun to try something new knowing that if you didn’t like it you could always order something else. My downfall was always the desserts!
Evening Entertainment: This evening we enjoyed the piano entertainer in the Crooners Lounge. He was an amazing pianist who could play anything anyone requested and was also a hilarious comedian. He had the entire audience laughing at his antics!
