Destination: Eastern Caribbean
One caution, if you intend to buy jewelry or watches, shop thoroughly before your cruise. I price tested four exact watches that I recently purchased and all four instances I paid less in the suburban Philadelphia area. In fact, one "island" jewelry store wanted a price higher than the MSRP on a watch I purchased two days before the cruise. Exact watches, not similar, exact. My best advice is not to buy jewelry or watches on the islands. Do not believe the duty free and tax free gimmicks. Probably you can get better prices on the ship, and you have recourse. Also, I would not ever use CruiseOne as a travel agent.
In conclusion, during the limo ride to Bayonne, the six of us were having a party in the limo with lots of conversation and lots of laughs; on the return trip, it was almost silent. Overall, RCCL has something for everyone. If you want to do nothing or be active all day and night or somewhere between, cruise RCCL. My wife took a photo of me eating pizza, wearing a tuxedo, at 1:30AM.
Nothing to think about, cruise RCCL. Less
