Ship was lovely..We have cruised this style before.  But, we do miss the Promenade/Central Park that are on the larger ships.  Staff was great, as always is on Royal Caribbean.  One of the major drawbacks was the 'tendering' into Bar Harbor.  Long lines. Our time in port was shortened because of the wait time.  Unfortunately, the Fall Foliage was not happening and we did not see any "turning", which was one of the reasons for a fall crusie.

Also we took an excursion entitled "Lobster Bake".  Was in a drab, hotel conference room and the lobster was boiled.  A very poor showing of what a New England/Maine LobsterBake should be.  Not a good choice.  The rest of the excursion was all bus touring; although the view of the Acadia was just spectacular.  If not for that, it would have been a total waste of time and money. Had no time to enjoy beautiful Bar Harbor town.

Otherwise, we love cruising and try and dwell on the "good stuff".  There is always enough of that!.
