Richard Deacon's Trip Report

Explorer of the Seas
5 Nights
Ocean View - Balcony

Our cruise was a 5 night cruise from Bayonne NJ to Bermuda on the Explorer of the Seas.  Leaving from Bayonne, you get a great view of the city and get to pass under the Verrazzan-Narrows Bridge.  This is a unique experience, that never gets old.  We had a great time onboard as we sailed to Bermuda.  Good food and fun times in the casino.  Once at Bermuda we toured the island and had a great time.  Bermuda is one of the nicest islands I have been to.  On the return trip home. we had a exceptional meal at Portofino and enjoyed the Ice Show and good times with friends and family.

This is our second time on this cruise.  Its a must do for anyone in the NYC area as its extremely convenient.  Just drive to the port and then kick back and relax.
