Canada/New England Cruise on Golden Princess

My family and I went on a New England & Canada cruise on the Golden Princess in early September 2005. We stayed in 3 outside cabins on the Emerald Deck (Deck 8) and really enjoyed ourselves. For anyone travelling on the Golden Princess there is this one $5 slot machine in the casino that paid out 3 jackpots for our family over the course of the cruise. I won't reveal how well we did, but that machine was unstoppable. The cruise took us to Halifax, where we rented a car and drove south to Lunenberg; St. John, where we took a VIP tour of the Moosehead Brewery courtesy of my sis-in-law; Bar Harbor, where we ate lobster at the Trenton Bridge Lobster Pound; Boston, where we had Dim Sum in Chinatown; and Newport where we toured the mansions and admired the pretty sailboats. If anyone wants tips on the Golden Princess or those ports, email me.
