September 2014 - Norwegian Breakaway to Bermuda
Bermuda is much more reserved than Caribbean islands. Very limited number of shops and restaurants close down quite early. People are friendly and the island is very clean. Public transportation is very easy to use. Am glad we purchased unlimited ferry and bus passes. Prior to this cruise, Indonesia beaches had the nicest water I've ever seen, but Bermuda is right up there for sure! Clean, clear and warm. The Crystal Caves were just beautiful! We took at 5 hour full island tour which was excellent as well.
Breakaway had top notch entertainment, really fun waterslides and obstacle course. Best poolside amenities I've seen on any ship. Casino was large and there were lots of different venues to choose from for restaurants that were included in the ticket price. The only negative for me was the cabin size. We've cruised extensively and this is, by far, the smallest cabin we've ever seen. Had to walk sideways and duck when getting out of bed and walking to the bottom of the bed, as there were bunks overhead. There was not one single drawer for clothing and the closet was about a third the size we've had on other ships. No sitting area. Cabin stewards were good, the ship was quite clean everywhere and well maintained, but we joked about the cabins being "double coffins!" Hallways were really narrow (single file only) as well. I think they tried too hard to cram as many cabins as possible on this ship.
