This was our first trip aboard a Quantum Class ship (as opposed to a Vision Class ship in the RC line): PROS: 1. Bumper car experience was understandably short in order to accommodate everyone, but very fun! 2. Service at Chic and ... Read more

We chose Port Liberty for ease of access during school vacation for the grandkids. They had a ball! Boarding was the most efficient ever, and we've boarded cruise ships about 40 times. We thought the restaurant scheme with daily ... Read more

Because we would be returning from cruising the weekend before Thanksgiving, we chose a port within driving distance of our home instead of flying. We've never cruised out of Bayonne, but the embarkation and disembarkation procedures were ... Read more

My husband and I had a fantastic time. The only real complaint I have about the whole experience was the traffic nightmare that was getting to the cruise terminal, but that is really not something RC can solve, that is a New Jersey issue. ... Read more

We generally cruise with Celebrity, but had not cruised at all this year due to medical considerations. This cruise appealed because we could drive to the port, and it was one of RCL's newest vessels full of state of the art attractions. ... Read more

The ports were good. The things to do like Ifly, North Star, bumper cars, and roller skating are all very cool. The Two70 area is modern and super nice. Everything else was extremely disappointing. The service was horrible. They ... Read more

The dining room service and stateroom service was the only enjoyable thing about this cruise. The rest of it was terrible! The bar service was extremely slow, and they ran out of moscato wine the first two days and near the end of the ... Read more

Avoid eating at "Silk" at all costs. The food is terrible. The Windjammer has better food by far!! The wine package has been eliminated. This means the cost of wine can almost double. Bring back the wine packages at ... Read more

Chose this cruise simply to experience a beautiful new ship. And the massive traffic jam of cars getting into the port gave us plenty of time to see it. I would suggest NOT arriving early. Go later and allow the throngs of early birds ... Read more
