We have been on our share of cruises and this was our fourth with Norwegian. By far, this was the most dated of ships and probably smallest compared to others we've sailed in the Mediterranean and Alaska. It reaffirmed what I've been thinking, that we...More

The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with
historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through
one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston
Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling
statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the
pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where,
during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting
children and eager tourists through the pond. Have
