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.
Embarkation was very smooth and did not take us too long to get through the lines and onto the ship.
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.
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.
We did a hop-on, hop-off tour on our own.
Enough time to have lunch and wander around.
Some parts were rather rushed. We were not told about whether to get lunch at one stop or not.
We enjoyed walking around on our own and had a good lobster lunch.
The Titanic cemetery was a highlight.
We had many stops in Halifax and at Peggy's Cove.
