More on Visit Maine Tourism CVB
When you and the boys need to get away, consider Maine as your next mancation. Maine is the perfect place to disconnect from your daily responsibilities -- the lack of Wi-Fi in some remote areas of the state might force you to disconnect. You'll probably see more pine trees than people. No, seriously, 83 percent of this Northeastern state is covered by forests. Apart from the state's natural wonders, Maine also has a rich cultural history to explore. Let's just say that they don't call Maine “Vacationland” for nothing.
Having cruised a few times in the Caribbean we wanted to do something new. A tour of New England and Maritime Canada, seemed like a great idea to explore a different area and show my wife some of the places I visited when I was younger. We had fun, the Carnival Glory is a great ship, but we learned a couple important things that will help guide us on future cruises 1) Sometimes the first trip on an itinerary is a bit rough 2) the "total cost" of a Caribbean cruise can be MUCH CHEAPER than other destinations 3) Sometimes you just need to be able to make your own fun when mother nature doesn't cooperate.
Next year (2013), Carnival is set to bring the Glory back to Boston, but with Funship 2.0 Upgrades, and hopefully our cruise helped both Carnival and the various ports iron out any kinks that we experienced.
