Wonderful Bermuda trip by mobi016

Overall experience was great. The dinner hall food seemed lack of variety and the quality was good but ordinary.

The quality of the food seems to decrease every year. Not even soup was hot when it got to your table and the Windhammer salad bar left a great deal to be desired.

A Much Needed Cruise Getaway by rscoons

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Get there as early as you can and start your cruise early. We took Yankee Trails Bus service down from the Albany, NY area. We were down at the port by 10:30am. Since we tagged our luggage, the next time that we saw it was around 1:30pm outside our stateroom door. We were on board and had our first drink in our hand by 11:30am. We had lunch and then took advantage of some to the tours that were offered. Our stateroom (8526) was ready around 1pm. The luggage showed up about 1/2 hour later. We unpacked and were able to get 2 of our large suitcases and one carry on under the bed. I had purchased an over the door shoe holder and it fit nicely over the outside of the bathroom door giving us extra room for toiletries, sunscreen, first aid kit, medications, etc... Loved the PrivaSea balcony which gave us extra protection from the extreme weather conditions we experienced through the cruise. Bed was comfy and much bigger than expected as it was more like a king size rather than a queen. All of our meals were either buffet style or at the complimentary restaurants. All meals were good and you could eat as much as you wanted to. Enjoyed several of the scheduled on board activities. My favorite was The Perfect Couple. The only let down of the cruise was when my husband's 2 tank scuba diving excursion was canceled due to a lack of interest/participation. We had purchased 2 passes for the Mandara SPA VIP Thermal Suite online before the cruise which saved each of us $29. That was one of the main highlights for us. We felt pampered and it was so relaxing. It was perfect because we were not able to take advantage of the outdoor pools and Jacuzzi due to the extreme weather conditions. The spa was not overly crowded. We had towels and bathrobes available along with refreshments. Finally, the view off the spa was amazing. Bermuda was very nice, but the weather played a factor on the first day. On the second day, my husband and I were able to visit Horseshoe Bay Beach and do some shopping at the Dockyard before heading back onto the ship. In all, we had a wonderful time and will definitely cruise again with Norwegian Cruise Line.

Nice cruise to Bermuda, but would not go on NCL again. by jasonvanhevel

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

The cruise itself was fine. The boat is getting older and it shows in some areas. The main issue was with how awful the technology onboard is. Want the beverage package? Write it out on a sales slip from 1990. Same at the shops. Then they triple charged for drinks. Had to fill out more paper slips to get it fixed. We had the soda package and they billed us for soda. Took THREE trips to customer service to get it removed. Then they cancelled our excursions without warning. Nightmare to get back on them. Having done my most recent cruises on RCCL, it just seems like NCL is stuck in 2000 in terms of onboard technology and customer service. Will be cruising on RCCL from now on when it's an option.

Wonderful vacation by agirt99

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

This cruise was very nice and was a peaceful getaway for me and my husband. We got to Bermuda and it was a bit cloudy but the sun came out and was fairly sunny and warm with a high of 76. It didn't rain until we had boarded to leave Bermuda and then it was a bit rough on the way back with higher waves, but not as bad as we had had before on other cruises. All in all it was a great cruise and we plan to go back to Bermuda again.

Relaxing by fredricwest

No decent food after 9:00pm! Always trying to sell you anything & everything. Entertainment was just OK, compared to other cruise lines I have been on. Excellent staff! Although the staff in the dining rooms, they were asking for a 10 rating a number of times, became annoying!!!

Will definitely be going back to Bermuda on a longer cruise than 5 days, and would not mind being on the Gem again except that next time will get a balcony room. Hopefully they’ll have better musicians then.

Nice destination out of Charleston but ship was in need of maintenance. by bliss03

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

We picked the cruise because it left out of Charleston and was going to Bermuda. Both favorite places for us. The cost of the 7 day cruise was quite a bit more than other destinations and after finding the ship in need of maintenance we wouldn't do it again. Our cabin was clean but the drapes were spotted and mildewy with holes in them and the bathroom had a large rusted spot next to the shower that was sharp and could have been a hazard. We had to be very careful. The food was just so so. We did not have one meal that was memorable. The crew and staff were wonderful and very attentive. Our overall take was that Carnival considers Charleston a lesser port and older ships with not so good food aren't likely to change in the near future. We won't be going again and won't go on Carnival in the future.
