Review summary

This was 9 days of relaxation! RC seemed to have plenty to do for everyone and the ship is one of their most beautiful. I met a couple of people who were doing this cruise for the second time!


5 out of 5
Beyond outstanding! Since I did the check-in online, including the photo for the sea pass card, all we had to do was walk through the line, get paperwork scanned, and go to lunch! Cards were waiting at the cabin. This was the easiest and quickest embarkation ever!

Ship experiences


We didn't go to any shows on this trip. Just relaxed in the evenings.

We had a balcony. The size was comfortable. I did notice there was no coffee table though. It was very nicely decorated! RS straightened things neatly but didn't vacuum for the first 7 days.

Ship tip

I always recommend getting a balcony!

We just walked around ourselves, no excursion. I recommend Legal Harborside for lobster rolls!

Beautiful village. We tendered here but it was fine. Very picturesque and quaint. Shops reasonably priced.

Halifax, Nova Scotia

Peggy's Cove is a must see. And the drive there is scenic. Shops at PC are outrageously overpriced though.

Saint John, New Brunswick

We went to Bay of Fundy Express. Boring tour! Nothing scenic between the ship and the Bay / St Martin.

We were off the ship in about 10 minutes. This included getting luggage. We were in one of the later groups since our flight was in the afternoon. Very easy process to go through customs - they use face recognition so you don't have to pull out passports.
