New England Cruise - Quebec to Port Liberty

Sail Date: September 19, 2013

Reviewed: 3 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

This was a wonderful cruise. There is so much to see in the various ports. We loved learning of the history that developed the areas. The ship itself was beautiful and offered great entertainment, activities and food. We were struck with how nice the folks who cruise are. Many were very loyal cruisers of the Royal Caribbean Cruise line and had been on multiple cruises. We wouldn't mind taking the same cruise so we'd have more time in the same ports. The one port that was not very impressive was Corner Brook, Newfoundland, where we just did a city tour. The passengers who went further out to a fishing village had a better experience.

Ship Quality
Food and Dining
Some entrees were just so-so.
Cabin / Stateroom
Tiny shower.
Service and Staff
All were very nice and aimed to please
Entertainment
Didn't care for part of the comedienne's routine. But everything else was great.
Onboard Activities
Wish the Bingo didn't cost so much.
Destinations and Excursions
The Corner Brook, Newfoundland tour was a little disappointing.
Quebec City, Quebec
It was great that so much was walking distance from the ship.
Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island
It was great to get to see where the writing of Anne of Green Gables was inspired.
Corner Brook, Newfoundland
We liked the few stops of the tour, but the guide didn't seem to know a lot. There isn't much to see within walking distance of the port.
Halifax, Nova Scotia
Wonderful history, sites and shopping. We would like to have had more time there.
Bar Harbor, Maine
Fun place. Enjoyed hearing the history of place on the walking tour. We had a very knowledgeable guide.
Portland, Maine
Enjoyed learning the history of the area but couldn't get nice photos of much due to being in a bus for most of the tour. Enjoyed getting out at a lighthouse.
Cape Liberty (Bayonne), New Jersey
We had to head straight to the airport and home after departing the ship. We thought it was cool that we could see the Statue of Liberty from where we docked.

Tip

We really liked that we could get a drink, cup of coffee or snack any time at the Promenade Café.
