Love the Grandeur and this itinerary. The crew is the friendliest and most amazing group of people. They all do everything they can to make sure that the guests are happy. The guests all seem like they are having a great time. The pianist in the Schooner bar was great. Rookie did a wonderful performance. Even the new cruisers were having a great time. They tried to do some awesome activities and parties. This is a ship that you want to be on and sail many times . The Captain is awesome and seen often about the ship. He goes to the Wind jammer like everyone else This ship is the friendliest with an amazing crew. They are dedicated professionals. They are committed to making the cruise perfect for every one. This is a wonderful cruising experience. I would heartily recommend.. There is a very high number of passengers returning to the Grandeur for a great cruise! Read Less

We were very interested in the itinerary of this sailing and it didn’t disappoint. We had a grande two bedroom suite which was very nice. The concierge, Francs, was wonderful to us. The ship is older, with some rust here and there, but the ports of call and fantastic staff make up for it. Ports of call included Boston, Portland, Bar Harbor, St. John, New Brunswick and Halifax, Nova Scotia. We also visited Lexington, Comcord, Acadia National Park, Kennebunk and Kennebunkport along with Peggy’s Cove. The Citadel in Halifax is very impressive. My son also enjoyed himself on the tours and the ship. On our days at sea, he told me he needed a rest! Our staff was very attentive especially our wait staff. We were honored to have dinner with the Captain and the staff on that evening were superb. Overall, a great cruise experience that I would recommend to others. Read Less

Always dreamed of going to New England... Loved all the ports... Boston was a bit hectic but ok. We loved all the others. Five ports total. Lots to see and a relaxing boat to go back to. The service was beyond excellent. The dinning room staff was unbelievable! So much fun and laughter all through dinner. "Happy People" was our greeting and theme. Everything was perfect. The atmosphere of the ship was calm and relaxing. Everyone was so nice we made many friends. Apparently there are many people who have sailed this ship multiple times. One woman had been on the ship for 9 months. People love this ship and call it their at sea family. We went to two shows both comedians and very entertaining. The best entertainment was Alex in the Scooner Bar. She played piano and sang. She was wonderful and very funny the way she conversed between songs. We spent 4 nights being entertained by her. Loved her. I could have stayed aboard for at least another month. My dream trip, best ever. I actually have a piece of luggage that is currently missing. Someone took it by mistake. Apparently their bag is just like it and they were in a hurry. It is currently in Jacksonville Florida and I am in Ohio. Slightly frustrating, however the cruise line is working with me and it is being shipped. Funny thing is even with that.....BEST TRIP EVER! Read Less

This was the 5th time in 5 years, we took the 14 day cruise to Canada/New England and to Florida/Bahamas - Back to Back. We come back each year because we enjoy it and know what to expect. We stayed in a two-bedroom suite on Deck 11. This included the Butler, Concierge and Moderno's for Breakfast and Cagney's for Lunch. The ports of call included Halifax, NS; St. John, NB; Portland, ME; Bar Harbor ME (Tender to get to shore); New York City; Port Canaveral, FL; Nassau, Bahamas and NCL Private Island (Tender to Shore). During this cruise we had a female butler Josephine for the first week and Teresa for the second week. We bought the spa package on line prior to the cruise and saved a lot of money. The Breakfast in the morning at Moderno's was the best meal of the day. The Gem will be sailing out of Boston next year and the Dawn will be making this trip from New York City in 2019. We will be sailing on the Dawn in 2019. Read Less

Canada New England cruise NY on June 2. Celebrating our 60th birthdays. We had a suite. Could not say enough about the service throughout. From dining to the bartenders to the concierge. Our butler Teresa was amazing. Our concierge Elvina was always there when we needed her from the moment we got on to when we left. The entertainment in lounges was so good. We went there every night to relax. The food was excellent in every restaurant . The only restaurant I was not totally overjoyed about was the Brazilian restaurant. It wasn’t what I expected. We wanted to use the pools in the spa. But you had to buy a week membership. Wanted to only use it on sea days. Last cruise they had daily rates. All in all we loved it and will sail again with Norwegian. Great cruise line. Can’t wait till next time. Thank You! Read Less

I picked this cruise itinerary because I’ve been on 3 other NCL Cruises and I wanted a different itinerary leaving out of NY. Overall, my friend and I were very pleased. I have to say the food was good and plentiful. I like the fact that they had 5 complimentary dining areas. We did go to the Teppanyaki Restaurant and paid a coverage charge. The food was good, as well as the entertainment from our Chef. I have to say the NCL staff were very friendly and accommodating. You pass a staff in the hall, and there was always a smile and a hello. The entertainment was excellent. They had 2 really great bands, and one pianist who sounded like Frank Sinantra. The entertainment crew were exactly that, entertaining and funny. The only issue we had was closing our safe. You follow the directions, but it would take about 10 times before we actually got it closed. Also, we didn’t find the shore excursion guy very friendly. Normally, we’d go up to a desk and ask for something and right away we’d be greeted by a smile and a hello, how can I help you, but not the excursion guy. Maybe he needs more training on friendliness. Lol. Most of the excursios we went on were good except we weren’t crazy about the “Hop On Hop Off Bus Tour” in Halifax, because you have to wait 30 minutes or longer for the next arriving bus to come, and the Lobster Bake which was part of the Arcadia National Park Tour. The Oark Tour was great, it’s the Lobster Bake lunch which we weren’t impressed with, and that cost us $99. For me, I didn’t see much meat on my lobster, and got more with a lobster roll on our Portland excursion for less money. All in all, it was a great and enjoyable cruise. Thank you NCL. Read Less

We have been on many cruises and this was our fourth family cruise. We have two grandchildren and they have cruised the Caribbean three times, we thought that it would be nice for them to have a new experience as well as see some of our great county. We are originally from the northeast and wanted them to see New York Harbor, The Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island , The Verrazano Bridge and the New York Skyline where we came to this country and we grew up. We flew in a day early and stayed in Newark, NJ and had what we call "New York Pizza". We took a Lyft to Port Liberty and had a smooth boarding process. We had a two bedroom grand suite in the rear of the ship for the six of us. Nothing super special but well laid out and very comfortable. Much larger then a standard balcony stateroom. Meals, Entertainment and service where top notch. We did not take any excursions but rather went out in our group of six. If the weather was not so cold it would have been A+ but with cold and rain I will say it was a B rating. In Halifax we went to the Citadel where everybody had a great time. Highly recommend it... On the ship the kids learned how to ice skate and enjoyed the activities and shows the ship had for them. I have tried to sail Canada twice and froze both times. I will think twice before I go again only because of the weather. Read Less

A Friend found the trip and asked several people to go. There were 13 of us cruising together.. I thoroughly enjoyed the time cruising the North Atlantic and visiting the ports and shore excursions. I found the excursions fun and educational. The service and dining was excellent. The food for the most part was excellent. I can't say enough about all the ship's staff. They were always courteous and helpful..The entertainment was delightful and very entertaining. I found that the embarkation and disembarkation were extremely efficient and well organized..I would definitely cruise with Royal Caribbean again. Although I would have preferred the weather to be a bit warmer so that I would have enjoyed the pools and hot tubs. Although the weather did not cause me to not go ashore and participate in the shore excursions. The only shore excursion that was cold and windy was the Marine Wildlife. We all had hopes of seeing whales and other marine wildlife. We did not see whales but we did see dolphins and otters. Read Less

My wife and I along with four friends and spouses went on the Royal Caribbean Adventure of the Sea New England/Canada seven day cruise. Our experience was great. Both the embarkment and disembarkment went extremely smooth. Our cabin was very satisfactory in size and the bed was exceptionally comfortable, to our surprise. Dining was great! Every meal was an experience in itself. Food was hot and delicious and more dessert selections than you can possibly enjoy even in 7 days. We enjoyed learning the history of each port and the shore excursions were will worth the money. Halifax Nova Scotia and Peggy's Cove may very well be the most interesting and neat place I have ever been to. The tour guide did a great job in telling us the history of Halifax and Peggy's Cove. Royal Caribbean definitely does it right and the dining staff and management take the time to constantly make sure you are happy throughout the cruise. Read Less

This is our first cruise and we chose the Adventure of the Seas because it is close to home and we have always wanted to visit the ports that are visited by this cruise. We had a wonderful experience on this cruise with respect to their dining room services and their excellent foods. The dining room services are very good and its staff are very professional and attentive to our needs. Their cabin service personnel are also very friendly and efficient and provided excellent services. There are a variety of entertainment on board for various ages, and we really like their song and dance shows, their comedies, and its promenade. We found the cruise is well managed, planned, organized and executed. The embarkation and disembarkation process were very efficient and smooth. There were various off shore excursions available for the ports visited, but we didn't participate in these excursions, although we heard that they were excellent. Being independent minded, we did explore the cities on our own and found them to be interesting. The allowed times onshore were sufficient for visiting some of the interesting sites in these cities. We highly recommend this cruise, especially in the fall for the foliage. Read Less
