Bayonne, NJ was chosen since 9 hours from home in Ohio. Cold and wet at embarkation, facility at Bayonne is crude and traffic is nightmare. We had hoped for warm weather on day 2 but that didn't happen, basically first 2 days and last 2 days are inside days. Ship is worn and due to be refurbished in 2014. We enjoyed ship thoroughly, great cruise director and staff was friendly and pleasant. We will cruise RCCL again as we have many times but probably from Ft. Lauderdale going forward.
