Sail Date: Oct 2015
Cabin: Oceanview Stateroom

I recently went on my first Royal Caribbean cruise. It was a nine day cruise out of Cape Liberty, NJ with ports in Boston, Portland, Bar Harbor, Saint Johns, and Halifax. I was cruising with two couples. This particular cruise was chosen for the itinerary.

The Good....

Embarkation was very smooth and did not take us too long to get through the lines and onto the ship.

Cabin Review

Oceanview Stateroom

Cabin H

In good condition. Plenty of space for one or two but four would have been horrible. Great storage in desk area. Many ships put the bed in front of the window in ocean views (as was the case in this one) which I don't like. Good location for the elevators and the theater.

Port Reviews

Bayonne (Cape Liberty)

There is a great deal of construction in the port area which slowed down getting to and from the port. Actual check-in was quick and easy.

Boston

We did a hop-on, hop-off tour on our own.

Portland (Maine)

Enough time to have lunch and wander around.

Saint John (New Brunswick)

Some parts were rather rushed. We were not told about whether to get lunch at one stop or not.

Bar Harbor

We enjoyed walking around on our own and had a good lobster lunch.

Halifax

The Titanic cemetery was a highlight.

Halifax

We had many stops in Halifax and at Peggy's Cove.
