Cape Liberty (Bayonne NJ) is a new port for cruise lines and upon arrival we were welcomed by 1.5 hours of traffic backed up by cars, vans, taxis, and limos picking up guests from the previous cruise (it was 2pm - SIX hours after the previous cruise had arrived).
My sixth RCCL (I am now a Diamond member) cruise and having just gotten back from sister ship Adventure of the Seas in February, I was looking forward to another Eagle class ship experience and the convenience of leaving from NYC/NJ.
My oceanview cabin on the third floor was as expected. The Canadian itinerary left much to be desired. Saint Johns was a small city with not much to do... we took an excursion to see the Reversing Falls which was interesting and ate at a lobster house outside of the entrance to the boat. Halifax, we arrived on a cold day so simply did some shopping and got back on the boat.
