Retired and loves the beach and cruise traveling. Just started back cruising after a long hiatus. Love the smaller Royal ships but I have yet to vacation on any of the larger ships. No pets at home or kids so I am free to travel.

June 2019 - 6 Night Canada & New England (Cape Liberty Roundtrip) Cruise on Adventure of the Seas

Beautiful scenery

The weather was perfect and the scenery was beautiful. It was a nice getaway with good ports. Really didn't need shore excursions because we liked to walk around town and do our own exploring.

Basically a cruise to nowhere all weekend

This is a great, short weekend getaway cruise. We noticed that the majority of the people left work early on Friday and went straight to the port, got on the ship, and come Monday morning they got off early and headed straight to work. Lots of people wearing their Seahawks attire all weekend. Proud group! The pool area was busy and the windjammer was packed at popular eating times but we always found a table quickly. The ship is perfect sized for a weekend cruise.

Cruise tips

Frederiksted, St. Croix, U.S.V.I.

One of a few ports where you can wander on your own. Just to the left outside the port area is a decent free public beach. The chair and umbrella rental will cost $30 for the day. The sand was good but there were many rocks and boulders at the shoreline which had a level of difficulty getting into the water. There were lots of seashells and seaglass right at the shoreline. Further into town, there were plenty of vendors selling the usual tourist junk and there were lots of restaurants and bars to stop and get some local provisions.

St. John's, Antigua

Took an excursion to Valley Church Beach. The shuttle bus ride took you through the countryside for 40 minutes before arriving at the beach which had a very local vibe. The beach had white powdery sand and lots of little seashells. The water was clean, clear, and calm. One small shack for food and drinks. Jet ski rental available from the locals. Expect to be asked 100 times if you want to buy some jewelry or beach cover-ups.

Bridgetown, Barbados

Took an excursion to Harbour Lights Beach. Well organized and safe. A little crowded but not over crowded. The sand is white and powdery. The water is cool, clean, and very calm. No seashells or seaglass. Nice vendors for food and trinkets. Fresh cut coconuts with water and rum for sale. Great showers to rinse off before returning to the shuttle bus.

Bring metal straws as the paper ones fall apart too quickly in drinks.

Saint John, New Brunswick

Wonderful port where there is plenty to see by walking into town. Nice stroll to the shore where there are cool rocks and great places to take scenery pictures.

Halifax, Nova Scotia

Had a great lobster roll just near the port. Enjoyed walking off ship through the market next to the terminal to buy T shirts. Town is quiet and it has a pretty waterfront area.

Bar Harbor, Maine

Great port where there is great places to eat, shop and sight see. Tender port but short ride.

Independence of the Seas

Bring metal straws as the paper ones fall apart in frozen bar drinks.
