The second day at sea I had not heard where the Cruise Critic meet up was to be so I checked with the guest services and was told it had already happened and they gave me to note. They would note that I was missed on the distribution. ... Read more

We were driven to port by our daughter at about 1:00 p.m. Did not see our luggage until 5 hours later. Got to stand outside during muster drill in topsiders and cold weather, while some woman was coughing on me. Meanwhile is lecturing ... Read more

My husband and I just returned from our cruise to Maine and Canada. We're from the Boston area, so we weren't traveling as much for the ports as for the cruise experience. This was our fifth RCI cruise, the second on a Radiance Class ship. ... Read more

Boston. History aplenty. Welcoming. Our Back Bay pre-cruise stay at the Lenox Hotel was excellent. Good walking/shopping area in the immediate vicinity. Cruise Port facilities were fine - our first impressions were favorable. ... Read more

My husband and I chose this cruise because we wanted to leave from our home port of Boston (much as we did with our previous cruise to Bermuda on Norwegian). I've been on one additional cruise, also on RCI, to Alaska, about ten years ago. ... Read more

We chose this cruise so we could view the Fall colors and visit Canada. We did see beautiful foliage and enjoyed visiting the ports of call in Canada. We flew into Boston two days early so we could experience the city of Boston. We had ... Read more

My wife and I sailed on the Grandeur of the seas Royal Caribbean cruise for nine nights for our 25th wedding anniversary. The ship only had six children on board which was nice in a way, however there were two thousand customers and only a ... Read more

Chose this cruise due to close proximity of departure port and port of calls for viewing fall foliage. We were not disappointed. Ship crew is fantastic. Food was not up to usual and precious quality, but was ok. Somehow we manage to always ... Read more

We traveled Oct 13-22,2016. We picked the cruise because of the ports. The ports were good to excellent. It was easy for us to get on the ship. We arrived at 1:30 and walked on the ship by 1:50. We were able to carry on our bags right ... Read more

We took a chance sailing in mid-October from Baltimore to Canada and New England, but we hoped to be in the area at the height of fall colors. It really paid off- Weather was beautiful- warm and sunny at each port. The trees were ... Read more

Great staff and crew but felt that if you didn't purchase a beverage package there was limited availability of complimentary drinks. Also after 1 pm your only choice is room service with a charge between midnight and 5 am. Room was ... Read more

We chose this cruise because we had not been on this itinerary before and it seemed like a good alternative to the Caribbean. When we first booked the cruise, over 1 year before sailing, our travel agent told us that the only option for ... Read more

First of all the ship is beautiful, massive, and yet are embarkation was seamless. We decided to go to Cafe @Two70 for lunch instead of the Windjammer and the crowds were light and the food good. We were able to check into our room ... Read more

We arrived at the port about shortly after noon. There was about 15 minute automobile backup to drop off our luggage. A relatively new parking garage is located next to the terminal and charges about $20 per day. Next we went inside the ... Read more

We were on the Allure 4 years ago and loved all of it. Was very excited to try the newest class of ship and could not wait to go on the Anthem. We are not finicky eaters. We have always rated Royal Caribbean's food as one of the best. Not ... Read more

We chose this ship as we had never been to New England. What a wonderful way to see the fall and enjoy the fun of a cruise. Mostly we cruise the Caribbean as we live in Florida, so this trip was a wonderful change. This ship is ... Read more
