Review summary

We did this cruise in 2017 and happily did a "rerun" (with our kids) in 2018. Would even do it again. It's a great ship and five nights is a "just right" length. Definitely recommend it!

Onboard Activities

Having now sailed on NCL, we've realized that Royal is lacking in the "lower-key" activities (karaoke, trivia, impromptu dinner theater). On Royal, we have to pre-book everything. It's kind of nice on NCL to be able to pop in and out as you're in the mood.

We Will Rock You is SPECTACULARLY entertaining. It was the second time we'd seen it on board, and it didn't disappoint. Spectra's Cabaret was disappointing this time. We skipped The Gift altogether -- didn't like it last year and didn't want to waste the time on it this cruise.

Royal knows how to design and build the BEST ships. Period.

Ship tip

Book as much as you can ahead of time. TRY WONDERLAND. Go in with an open mind and an adventurous spirit. You will LOVE it!

Cape Liberty (Bayonne), New Jersey

Not the prettiest port, but super organized and efficient. Things there move at the NJ pace: fast!

King's Wharf, Bermuda
