This was my first first trip with Road Scholar- was deeply disappointed. Family members recommended RS after taking at least 12 trips. I was told that the RS food was always “very good” and the experiences enjoyable. Wish I could say that about my trip. With the exception of our first night’s dinner, the restaurants where we ate were strictly average, not memorable at all. For the actual programs, our group had to sit through a number of long and dull lectures. During the granite-cutting lecture, I saw at least 4 people fall asleep during the granite-cutting lecture and 2 of us walked out completely, due to BOREDOM. Allowing a man to lecture for more than 2 hours about granite-cutting is entirely too much! And the lecturer was so oblivious that he didn’t notice that ¼ of his audience was absent, either physically or mentally. On the other hand, far from being given a too much time inside ANP, we were allotted only 15-25 minutes to walk around places like Thunder Hole and the top of Cadillac Mountain. That’s a poorly-balanced program, in my opinion. On the other hand, I did enjoy the company of my fellow travelers, spending time inside Acadia National Park, Glenn Tucker’s lectures, and the boat ride to Little Cranberry Island. Overall, though, I’d need to think long and hard before planning another trip with Road Scholar.
