Leaving from NJ it was a little cold the first 2 days but there was pleanty to do on the ship. s a family we spent quality time together and this is what we needed and wanted. you cant be board if you are your not checking out all the things that there are to do.

Really nice day it was there holiday so shopping was limited but excursions were easy to find


This was the first christmas that we were not home with the rest of the family. WE went with our children and the feeling on board makes you feel like you are with family and friends. I would do it again and also consider going from christmas thru the new year. i would deff. book another cruise with RCCL should it be the holiday or the summer.
