We were very pleased with the cruise and signed on to the New England Islands cruise next summer.
The staff was very helpful. Meals were great. Other passengers were excellent companions. Made several friends. The only negative was that the WiFi in the cabins was almost useless–but it worked well in the lounge.
All but one island tour was great. The poor one was weak because of the lack of information from the driver. I know that the cruise line gave them the feedback.
Savannah, Beaufort, and Charleston were very interesting. We made good use of the extra days in Charleston; rented a car one day and saw Magnolia Plantations. The Best Western King Charles Inn was very close to the market square and thus within walking distance of the center of the historic district. We chose their Charleston Experience that included a carriage ride, tickets for Ft Sumter, $25 off a dinner at Fleet Landing, etc. Not terribly expensive either.
