Review summary

Bad weather. My only shore excursion (SCUBA..the reason I took the cruise to Bermuda) was cancelled due to winds. Ship was “just OK”.


3 out of 5
While we were asked to check in by 10:30 am. We were not allowed to board for over an hour after that, nor could we get into our stateroom until 3 hours later.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
Excellent food in main dining rooms. Some wait staff pretty good, others not so much. Almost never got the wine we ordered until AFTER our appetizer was finished. Jamie’s specialty Restaurant (Italian) was outstanding.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
Rip-Cord was great fun. North Star pretty boring.

Average raise ship stateroom with balcony.

Ship tip

Don’t have too high expectations. Be prepared for a deluge of trying to sell you all kinds of stuff EVERY DAY for weeks before the cruise. Pretty annoying.

Ports of call

Cape Liberty (Bayonne), New Jersey

Pretty dirty and unappealing.

Average. Disney has this organized much better than anyone else.
