“Beautiful fall day trip.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2013

We visited Bar Harbor on a day trip included with our cruise. We didn't schedule an excursion and were glad we chose to explore on our own. We walked the ocean path into the Main Street area. It was truly beautiful! Leaves were just turning and the air was crisp. We found many little shops to explore.

“Great place to get married!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

We stopped here on a port of call on our cruise last week (10-9-2013), and thought Bar Harbor was such a beautiful spot we decided to get married there. Went to city hall, had a private ceremony on the banks of Frenchman Bay, and were back on board ship in time for dinner !! Frenchman Bay will always hold a special place in our hearts!

“Frenchman Bay Schooner Ride”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

The scenery rivals Alaska. The ride aboard the Margaret Todd Schooner was all that one could image. I would go back in a flash if I could. The Captain's knowledge gives you as a passenger complete confidence in what will happen and what you should look forward to.
