Boy did we pick the wrong time of year or what.   It was hot and crowed.  I couldn't fit my little toe in the pool or find a lounge chair that wasn't crammed next to some one else.  So much for relaxing there.

Purchased the classic beverage package which turned out to be strange.  First beer my husband wanted was on the premium package so he was immediately 

pointed to the premium upgrade... $82 more.  The whole system is nickel-dime and requires one to negotiate for cocktails since my package remained classic.  I could order a Tanqueray and tonic but no Tanqueray martini.   Just wierd.

Also,  the service at the martini bar was slow and terrible.  Bartenders would not make eye-contact with customers.  We saw it happening to others aroundus.  It was as though if they take their time serving drinks it might save the ship money.


The bus tour around Bermuda was way over-priced for what it was and in my opinion for the price should have included some food or less cost and more time to grab a bite.


Also found the buffets to be so crowded that I lost weight trying jacking for positions and the food stations....maybe a good thing?


Service in the dining rooms was lacking in consistency although the Cosmopolitan did a pretty good job.   Our best meal was the Tuscan Grill which, of course costs

us over $100 in on board credits.  Don't like to have to pay for a meal that should be included but it as the only way to get service and solitude on our anniversary.


All in all we wouldn't recommend this cruise to anyone.  The best part of our trip

was the friends we went with.


Cabin / Stateroom
Especially liked the pillow menu. The mini-fridge could pose a problem for many passengers who are unaware that they are being charged for items at a very high premium. $24 for a tiny bottle of wine....really???
Loved our cabin steward who was prompt with our every request!
Beds were great!!
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Embarking was challenging to say the least. No designated line for concierge. We had to play the "squeaky wheel" and talk people into moving us along. Almost missed the welcome buffet by 5 minutes.

Great service every time .
Cape Liberty (Bayonne), New Jersey
Our airport shuttle was a beat up minivan with no name on it, Windows spray painted and garage throughout. Our driver took us through back streets that seemed a little shady. Needless to say it was not the welcome we expected. Did file a complaint and were reimbursed with on board credits.
