We live in Ontario, Canada and always drive to the port, either Cape Liberty in New Jersey, or Baltimore. We go down the day before and stay overnight then get up the next morning and drive to the pier!
We have only ever cruised with RCL, our first cruise was in 2004 on the Grandeur of the Seas, the 2nd was Voyager of the Seas and last year was Explorer of the Seas. This year we are going back on the Grandeur(actually the cruise is Oct.5th NEXT MONTH!). We have also booked a 25th wedding anniversary cruise on the Explorer of the Seas for next October.
I would highly recommend RCL to anyone and everyone!
Any questions, feel free to ask away.
Happy Cruising to Us ALL
