TIRED OLD SHIP
Embarkation: Bayonne (Cape Liberty)
we are just returning from a 5 day trip to hell, oops, Bermuda and back. we never made our excursion as we were more than 3 hours late do to a propulsion problem. it rained the entire first day once we got thee. the 2nd day we left early due to Hurricane Cristobal heading our way. We had more than 900 little children on board so imagine what fun it was for two days on board with nothing much planned for anyone over 50. It looked like Carnival cruise Lines! At least carnival has a program for kids to keep them entertained most of the day. Cant say much for RCL in that area.
Warning: If you have any business to attend to while on board be aware there is NO WI FI IN YOUR CABINS. you must go to a hot spot area. As we all know internet service on board is slow, but without cabin wi fi it became a task an my spouse was not a happy camper.
It took way more than an hour to embark due to all the construction in the area. they are building a new terminal here it looks like. More
Also for those of us that are Platinum travelers there is non priority window at the pursers desk. and the wait in line can become ridiculous too say the least.
I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS SHIP TO ANY EXPERIENCE RCL TRAVELER UNTIL IT GOES TO DRY DOCK I THINK IN MARCH. YOU WILL BE DISAPPOINTED Less

Cabin review: 7276
our cabin had a hot water problem. You had to leave the water running for several minutes before getting any hot water. the faucet in the bath had to be replaced as well. the balconys are very small as well. they still have the old tube type tvs . Our steward, Samson was excellent doing the best with what he had.
