Kudos to Royal Caribbean for making our summer vacation very memorable. Our 1st time with Royal Caribbean and we liked the experience. Chose this cruise because of the destinations (4) and the length of the cruise 9 nights and not having to take any airline flights (out of Bayonne, N.J.).

The only complaint was embarkation from Bayonne. We arrived around 11:00 a.m. and had to wait in a traffic jam. Eventually all of the vehicles are funneled down to a single lane. Then you drop your luggage and proceed to park your vehicle.

Once getting on the ship we proceeded to the Windjammer buffet restaurant to eat lunch. We were having lunch by 1:00 pm sitting next to the window overlooking NYC. Food was o.k. at this very crowded restaurant. (cabins were available after 1:30)
