Hotel | "Royal Caribbean Standard Staterooms"

Quote:
These standard accommodations were very well suited for two adults. The cabin includes 2 double beds that are combined to form a queen size. There is a small dresser/ make-up counter, as well with mirrors all over. A small TV typically occupies the corner of the room, and it's a nice added touch, for in room movies and music. The washroom is a little tight, but hopefully you're not stuck in there too long. The real problem is the shower, as you may have heard – it’s very narrow and awfully tight. Don't drop the soap!!! Aside from that, who wouldn't love a balcony to go with that? I have not had the chance to experience that, but then, I could always just go up to the promenade desk and see the sunrise...Read More

Hotel | "Onboard Fine Dining"

Dining onboard was fantastic. Everything from the full service breakfasts, to the gala midnight buffets, this is what cruising is about. Starting with breakfast, it can be enjoyed in your cabin (room service), or in the dining room. Full menu items, and even healthy starts. Lunch is a grand affair, with lighter sides, or full meaty meals. Dinner is always an event. The waiters and busboys sing and dance, always happy to be of service. Then there's the coveted midnight buffet. These are grandiose affairs that were picture perfect. The quality of the food is generally very good, and the portions are just right. Hope you have a healthy appetite...Read More

Hotel | "East Coast food and beverage"

To be on a Eastern Canada cruise, you must enjoy the sights and sounds of the east coast. On some of the tours/excursions, there are meals provided and these may include (highlight) lobster or other types of seafood specialties. Everyone knows that the seafood out east is good, but it really is different when you're acutally there tasting it. Freshly steamed lobster and maybe a side order of shrimp is a perfect combo, but one thing is that it doesn't come cheap. Unless it is offered by the cruise during one of the meals, it can be very expensive. The eating excursions try to exploit this, so they can run from $40-95 per person. It's not all wasted, since it is something that every seafood lover should...Read More
