My wife and I just returned from a one week Canada and New England cruise on the Caribbean Princess arranged by Sue at Mind's Eye Travel.  This was definitely one of the nicest vacations we've ever taken.  To say that the entire cruise experience was wonderful would be an understatement.  Sue saw to it that every detail was taken care of.  We started on the trip with confidence that it would go well but it went even better than we expected.

Sue arranged for an overnight hotel stay in New York prior to boarding the ship.  During the one day in New York she also arranged for a private tour of the Air and Sea museum and dinner at a wonderful restaurant.  She arranged for vans to take the group from the hotel to the dock and then assistance for our group to board the ship.  We had a personalized safety drill and private tour of the ship.  Sue arranged for our group to sit together for dinner each night (but of course you were free to make other arrangements if you wished.  Sue even arranged for the cruise line to provide braille menus for us. 

The ship was relatively easy to get around and learn where the various public rooms were.  When it comes to excursions normally either Sue or Diana (the sighted guide who came with the group) escorted us.  They did not limit us as to what excursions we could do.  In one case (when we stopped in Bar Harbor) a volunteer who works for the ship escorted us on the land excursion.  She did a fantastic job.  Whenever my wife and I would walk around the ship as soon as we entered a public room a member of the ship staff would immediately come up to us and offer assistance.

Overall the entire experience was fantastic and I would definitely recommend this to anyone wanting to have an enjoyable vacation.
