Liberty of the Seas

September 2015 - 9 Night Canada & New England (Cape Liberty Roundtrip) Cruise on Liberty of the Seas

ceholster's Tips

Corner Brook, Newfoundland - We arrived at Cornerbrook, which was a waste of time. There was nothing to see unless you took an expensive excursion inland. The town had a City Hall, VFW and a library. Not even picturesque.
Quebec City, Quebec - Worst place I have ever see a ship docked. We were told that we would have two days in Quebec, but it turned into 24 hours because, we were told, the Whale migration in the Saint Lawrence had the ship slow down the length of this seaway both ways. No whales were sighted and we lost half a day of time in Quebec City. The port was a joke! It was next to a dump and grain silos. The gangway was build with two ramps by a portable crane on shipping containers and was extremely hazardous to traverse. We were a distance from the city, while another ship (Princess Line) was right across from the main area with an open berth behind it. We had to traverse unsafe terrain and cross a river lock to get to the city! The ship offered transportation for a fee of $30.00. I have been on 32 cruises and when a ship is this far out of town the shuttle was free! We left early the next day at 5:00 PM instead of 10PM from the original itinerary.
Sydney, Nova Scotia - When we left this stop the Captain told us we would not be going to Sydney due to a storm coming up the east coast. We headed out to sea to avoid it. For over a day we were in 21-foot swells and had a rough trip home. We arrived in NYC on time to a calm bay.
Norwegian Gem Norwegian Gem - Norwegian has much better ships! I would not travel on the Gem again.
Norwegian Breakaway Norwegian Breakaway - Get a room near steps for convenience. Get to the shows early for best seats and check the schedule frequently.
