Stranger wrapped in a towel let into our stateroom at 2 am

Sail Date: September 15, 2015

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

One of the crew used their master key to let a strange man wrapped in a towel into our stateroom at 2 am while we were asleep.  Cruise ships response was that there needed to be further staff training. 

Cabin / Stateroom
Very quiet.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Royal Caribbean used scare tactics to have us buy ground transportation to the airport. There were plenty of taxi's which would have been less expensive and quicker.
Ship Quality
Not the initial WOW when I got on the ship.
Destinations and Excursions
The tour booked through Orbits was very good. The tours booked through Royal Caribbean a waste of time and money.
Onboard Activities
Service and Staff
Food and Dining
Too much salt in the cooking.
Cape Liberty (Bayonne), New Jersey
Portland, Maine
Booked very boring tour through Royal Caribbean.
Bar Harbor, Maine
Enjoyed walking the town. We learned from shop owners there was free transportation to the parks outside of town.
Halifax, Nova Scotia
Great tour to Peggy's Cove to and from. Didn't go the same way twice. Booked through Orbitz.
Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island
Take the horse and buggy tour. Very fun!
Ville Saguenay, Quebec
Not much to do or see.
Quebec City, Quebec Take a taxi to the airport. Save some money.


The cruise director Carley B and her staff were excellent. We also saw the Captain all the time. Not sure who was driving the ship.
