ANY PORT IN A STORM

Sail Date: October 03, 2015

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Large Group

THIS WAS MY FIRST CRUISE ON A PASSENGER SHIP. I'VE CRUISED ON A US NAVY DESTROYER. INTERESTINGLY, I HAD EXPERIENCE IN A STORM ON A SHIP. WELL, ALTHOUGH THE ITINERARY WAS FOR BERMUDA, WE DID NOT GO THERE. UNFORTUNATELY, HURRICANE JOAQUIN WAS "HAMMERING" THE BAHAMAS AND ALL AREAS IN THE REGION OF THE ATLANTIC. THE CRUISE LINE MADE THE DECISION, FOR SAFETY OF ALL, TO CHANGE THE PORT OF CALL. WE WENT TO SAINT JOHN, NEW BRUNSWICK, CANADA. THE WEATHER WAS TOO COOL FOR MOST OF THE TRIP TO PARTAKE IN ON DECK OUTSIDE ACTIVITIES, BUT THE CRUISE DIRECTOR AND CREW FILLED OUR TIME WITH PLENTY OF ENTERTAINMENT AND INDOOR ACTIVITY. BECAUSE OF THE PRICE DIFFERENTIAL DUE TO CHANGE OF PORT, EVERYONE RECEIVED AN ONBOARD CREDIT, WHICH COULD BE USED FOR ANY PURCHASES ON THE SHIP. WHILE IN SAINT JOHN, WHICH WAS ONLY A 12 HOUR DOCKING, WE SHOPPED AND DID SIGHT-SEEING. WE CAME ON THE CRUISE IN A PARTY OF 10, MOSTLY FAMILY, AND SOME FRIENDS. THAT HELPED A LOT AND WE HAD FUN. ROYAL CARIBBEAN DID A GREAT JOB UNDER THE CIRCUMSTANCES. WE WOULD TRAVEL WITH ROYAL CARIBBEAN AGAIN. SURE, IT WAS DISAPPOINTING NOT GOING TO BERMUDA. BUT WE'LL SAIL THERE SOMEDAY, JUST NOT DURING HURRICANE SEASON.

Cabin / Stateroom
REALLY NICE WITH A BALCONY. DIDN'T GET TO USE THE BALCONY MUCH DUE TO THE WEATHER, COOLER AND WINDY. I EXPECT IT WOULD HAVE BEEN NICE IN BERMUDA.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
BOTH WERE DONE QUICKLY AND EFFICIENTLY.
Ship Quality
Destinations and Excursions
DID NOT GET TO BERMUDA BECAUSE OF HURRICANE JOAQUIN.
Onboard Activities
Children's Programs
THERE WERE SOME CHILDREN ON BOARD, BUT WE DID NOT REALLY FOCUS ON THEIR ACTIVITIES AS WE HAD NO CHILDREN WITH US.
Entertainment
Service and Staff
Food and Dining
Cape Liberty (Bayonne), New Jersey
OK. VERY LARGE, BUT CHECK-IN WAS EFFICIENT.
King's Wharf, Bermuda
DID NOT GET THERE ON THIS TRIP.
