This is the 14th year we are offering a FALL FOLIAGE CRUISE, so you can enjoy the beautiful colors of fall. This one week cruise is on one of the largest ships, the Royal Caribbean Cruise lines “SERENADE OF THE SEAS.” Experience a northeastern autumn when the trees are bright red and the warmth of summer is still in the air. You will enjoy visiting Canada and the exciting ports of BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS PLUS PORTLAND AND BAR HARBOR, MAINE; INCLUDING THE EXCITING PORTS OF ST. JOHN, NEW BRUNSWICK AND HALIFAX, NOVA SCOTIA IN ADDITION TO SPENDING TWO FULL FUN DAYS AT SEA. There will be plenty of fun things to do on this floating resort including spectacular views along the coastline of New England and Canada’s Maritime Provinces. Be sure to bring your camera to capture nature’s bright colored flowers and trees. In the evenings, enjoy Broadway musical performances in the showroom. Make your own airline reservations to and from Boston, Massachusetts or call our office for the cruise line airfare including round-trip transportation to the ship. Just the food and entertainment alone are worth the price of this one week Fall Foliage Cruise that takes place only once a year.

Each evening separate dining room tables will be reserved in the main dining room for our group of Jehovah’s Witnesses so you can get acquainted with other Friends from around the country. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are included daily in the dining room or at one of the buffets.
