Two Hours Onboard...


This page chronicles ship visits I was privileged to make during calls on Boston.


During ship tours, I tend to focus on what a cruiser might notice—such as sight lines in the show lounges, passenger flow, interior design features, speed and reliability of elevators, proximity of quiet spaces to noisier ones, and restaurant service.


Often, I am given run of the ship, which gives me time to linger when noting my observations. Other times, I am invited on a formal tour, on which I jot down my thoughts along the way.


Either way, I thank the cruise lines for allowing us to share our
