TAPS cruise


This adventure offers round trip from Cape Liberty (Bayonne), New Jersey to Halifax, Nova Scotia aboard Royal Caribbean’s Adventure of the Seas

Check out photos from previous TAPS travel. 


The Adventure of the Seas has features to keep guests of all ages entertained. Sports-minded passengers have fun participating in Royal Caribbean's onboard activities, including sky diving and surfing simulators, sports courts, zip lines, rock walls, ice rinks and mini golf. Want a more relaxing retreat? Lounge around the pools or enjoy the spa. You'll also find a variety of dining options, shows, entertainment for kids and more. Visit the Royal Caribbean's website to learn more about the ship. 


We know that healing is found when surrounded by peers who understand. While on board, TAPS will have a variety of programs and activities available for you based on relationship or loss, and we'll gather as a group each evening for a TAPS family dinner. We'll also have a survivor sanctuary that will serve as our home base where you can always connect with TAPS staff should you need any emotional support.

When we reach each port, you'll have plenty of time to explore. TAPS will also offer organized group shore excursions that will be announced closer to the cruise.


Day 1: We'll set sail from Cape Liberty at 3 p.m. and cruise to our first destination.
Day 2: We'll spend the day at sea, and you'll get to explore the cruise ship's many features.
Day 3: The ship will dock at Bar Harbor, Maine for the day.
Day 4: The ship will dock at Saint John, New Brunswick for the day.
Day 5: The ship will dock at Halifax, Nova Scotia for the day.
