July 2015 - 7 Night Bermuda (Boston Roundtrip) Cruise on Norwegian Dawn
Well, we thought we were sailing from a port that had not only a lot of history which would further enhance our experiencing Bermuda for the first time. We were so wrong. Bermuda was gorgeous, but the cruise experience was a nightmare. We were inundated with small children running completely wild all over the ship. We were further tormented by teens without boundaries or rules which made them either rude or so loud that you could not enjoy a meal. Then there were the adults who must have been on a crusade to drink themselves senseless. They were loud and rude all day and all night long all over the ship.
As a result of the wild and senseless drinking, we got very little sleep. The cruise line helped us one night, but we just could not see complaining every night. It is not our style to whine about things. But this was probably our worst cruising experience ever!!
One night we tried to get to sleep and were disturbed by drunken fighting and shouting right outside of our door---it was 3:30 a.m. Other nights were much the same. We asked the staff to help once and they must have removed the guy next door as he sounded like he needed to be restrained. Never heard him again, but the mother and the kids were drunk and loud every night until the wee hours of the morning. I even saw our room attendant scrubbing their carpet after their all night binge---can't imagine what they did to warrant that!
