My husband and I will be aboard also. I took the same cruise last October......solo because he can't get away because of his teaching schedule. This is the first time cruises to New England that has been offered during the summer months, so we are taking adventage of it.
On my trip in late October, the weather was quite cold, and the fall leaves were spectactular. But I think the summer months will be just as nice. The towns are quaint and very walkable, and of course Quebec was awesome. After 18 cruises, I consider this my personal favorite.
