This was a fun cruise despite some minor setbacks. As far as the departure and pier procedures, it was typical. The folk at Cape Liberty were on par despite the environment and building which they are refurbishing and expected to complete ... Read more

I booked this sailing with a small group of friends as an end-of-summer trip. We stayed at the Residence Inn on Austronaut Blvd. I highly recommend this hotel, it is about 5 minutes from the port. It's so close you can see the smoke stacks ... Read more

As I prepared for my cruise on Vision, I read many reviews. Some focused on the positive but others focused on the negative. We just returned from this cruise and had a great time. They really packed a lot into a short amount of time. For ... Read more

Our four-night Western Caribbean cruise aboard the beautiful Vision of the Seas began with a cross-country flight from California and a two-night stay in Ft. Lauderdale. We flew on Jet Blue from LAX to FLL (love that leg room). We landed ... Read more

Consider ourselves seasoned cruisers - 20+ cruises since 1996 and 10 or so with RCL. Maybe it was coming off of a rather wonderful cruise on the Allure in September, 2013 or just the time of the year, but it certainly wasn't up to ... Read more

Royal Caribbean International is not my favorite CRUISE LINE by far at the moment AND YOU SHOULD KNOW WHY SO YOU ARE AWARE! We left Port Everglades out of Ft. Lauderdale, FL. The first 3 days were GREAT, Fun and loved our Excursions. We ... Read more

I've always been an advocate that Bigger is Better. I've wanted to sail on an Oasis Class ship since they were introduced to the cruise industry. After my cruise on Allure I am less to embrace this philosophy. Bigger, as in Allure of the ... Read more

Adventure of the Seas is a beautiful ship that is showing signs of wear and tear, but still a great ship. It is large with over 3000 passengers. Food on the ship was excellent, and the crew was phenomenal. After we left on Monday the 4th ... Read more

Our Cabin was great but our attendant was just barely marginal. He barely showed any interest in our experience aboard. He was even barely capable of faking the little interest he showed. I know that service is a difficult industry and ... Read more

I went on this cruise with four other male friends (gay upper-30 year olds) and we had two balcony cabins. Our cabin slept four, but we had three in it. There was enough room for three, but more would feel cramped. The itinerary was great. ... Read more

This is our 7th cruise, and my sister and her family's second one. Departing from New York was very easy; the dock was easy to find (much easier than NJ's Port Liberty), and parking was a breeze. My partner and I booked a penthouse, my ... Read more

It's always good to start by introducing our group, so you can judge in comparison. There were eight of us: 2 gay male couples in their 50's, a family of 3 (mom, dad, and their 6-year-old daughter), and a 50-year-old male traveling on ... Read more
