Default Canada/New England cruise

Hi everyone - I have a question. We have been on the carribbean cruises and I LOVE THE BLUE WATER and nothing but water around us! We have been to Alaska - different, absolutely beautiful and we want to go again. Now I am thinking of the canada/new england cruise. Is it like a carribbean cruise (lots of water, etc) or Alaska - scenery? Any input on this cruise? Thanks!!

Hi Cheryl,
I am from New England, and My sister is leaving tomorrow for this cruise while I take her three kids, She is the one that talked me into taking my first cruise many years ago, and I have not stopped, since, the sad part is she had an autistic little boy and she had to stop cruising for 15 years so I am so excited for her, I will get tons of information for you.

Hi Cheryl, I went on a 3-day windjammer-schooner cruise in 1992, the port was in Maine and we went up and down the coast, mostly around Maine. I can tell you the scenery around there is spectacular. I would do the new england coast again in a second! The Ship is Timberwind, which docks in Rockport Harbor. Mel Gibson was filming/directing The Man Without a Face at the time, in the litlte town the ship docks in, and we were watching Mel with binoculars the morning before we sailed. We also interrupted the filming on the way to dinner in town before sailing. It was cool! Of course, I then saw Mel smoking a cigarette, which made me instantly lose interest in him as an actor.

I'd love to cruise Alaska in person; - I've done it vicariously through a Travel Channel Special.
