  3. Celebrity Summit
Have sailed with Celebrity several types and never been disappointed. Dining experience is fantastic, quality of food first class. Staff and level of service excellent. Ship is a little dated, but I believe it is going in for a refit next year, but that wouldn't stop me from using this ship again. Sunday 9th September sailed from Cape Liberty, was raining so not great views of Manhattan, port is near Statue of Liberty. Monday 10th September as sea Tuesday 11th September - Boston Took the shuttle bus from the ship and walked to Faneuil Hall, rangers provide Freedom Trail guided walks, which we started but had to leave due to the lack of time. We then walked to Cheers Bar across Boston Common. Would recommend lunch at the Quincy Market great selection of food venues. Wednesday 12th September – Portland, Maine Took the Mail Boat run with Casco Bay Lines for $16.50 each, we boarded the Mail Boat run. It took us out in the bay, saw countless islands & stopped at a few. The captain gave some history of each of the islands you pass or visit. Better to have a trip booked as the town not that big. Thursday 13th September – Bar Harbour, Maine This is a tender port. The free shuttle buses provided by Island Explorer to the Arcadia National Park are excellent, a map is provided when you pay $15 to become a member and then you can hop and off the various buses touring the park. At bus stops times are displayed with the times of the next buses are arriving, we changed bus 3 times and it was fantastic. Bar Harbour itself is great to walk round, lots of shops and places to eat. Friday 14th & Saturday 15th September at sea Sunday 16th & Monday 17th September – Quebec A shuttle was provided up to the old town. Had a walk round about and then back the train station and purchased bus ticked to go to Montmorency Falls, which were lovely. Next day bought tickets for the hop on hop off bus from the Tourist Information office, near the Chateau, it was really informative, head phones were provided and 10 language translations. Tuesday 18th September – Saquency The Saguenay River Fjord is the 4 largest fjord in the world the fjord plunges to depths of 900 feet. Took a guided tour with a local company from the port, guide told us of the history of the area and we stopped at viewpoints and then at a village before returning to the ship. Others on the ship did the hop on hop off bus, which they said was excellent and included museum access. Wednesday 19th September at sea Thursday 20th September – Sydney, Nova Scotia Just had a walk around the town, craft stalls in the port, but not much to see, we should have booked a trip. Taxis are available just outside port with tour options, but by the time we thought of this the trip was going to take too long. Friday 21st September – Halifax, Nova Scotia Visited Peggy's Cove shared a taxi which was $200 with 2 other couples, the driver was very knowledgeable, we went along the coast to Lunenburg which is a UNESCO Heritage town, it was absolutely stunning, weather was glorious then driver took us to Titanic Cemetery and Citadel Titanic Cemetery has guided tours and was excellent.
