Review Summary

Bermuda is very lay back- not an exciting destination but since the ship remains anchored for 3 days, there is no need to rush getting off or returning to the ship. Individuals can take advantage of local restaurants or entertainment in port at night. IT's a great location for a rest/cure; as well. If you are recuperating from a hospitalization or you have mobility issues, this is a good destination and trip pacing which can accommodate your needs. The ship is a bit dull at night.

Embarkation

5 out of 5
Quick, easy, simple and hastle free

Ship Experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Specialty restaurants, Luminiere, etc. are excellent, quiet and provide excellent food and service. We avoided the buffet as much as possible; too crowded, too noisy. Luminiere for breakfast and lunch was a far better choice. Dinners were always wonderful with a wide variety of choices.

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
Lots of walking, reading near the pool, cocktails in the early evening and later at the ice bar. ALso did a bit of chasing my grandson down the corridors and around the pool area. Didn't get the chance to use the spa; perhaps next time. We did take a tour of the bridge and met with the captain. The "History of Burmuda" lecture was interesting.

Entertainment

4 out of 5
Did not participate more than one evening.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
The dining room staff, wait staff in Luminiere, Italian Restaurant, Chef's Specialty Dinner and MIchael's Pub were great. Our butler, Peter was extremely helpful and friendly to the family. Anastasia, our suite concierge was lovely and very reliable in solving any and all problems. i writing The Captain's Club hostess, however, was disgusting and arbitrary in interpreting and enforcing "rules" and treated guests in a most despicable fashion. When confronted with policy, in writing, she still refused to amend her edicts. She is obviously poorly trained in her position.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Very clean, conveniently designed. The shopping area, however, is small and limited variety of merchandise. The Ice (Martini) Bar is a very popular area and needs to be enlarged to meet the number of guests that gather there. Get rid of the ice cream station near by, no one goes there and those who want ice cream can get it in the buffet room on the 10th floor. The lounge areas in most places are too dark. Enhance the Wine Cellar and put the wine dispenser displays back. Expand this area, get rid of the Sushi Restaurant, almost no one uses it.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
More room for hanging up clothes, storing folded items, stowing gear, etc. compared to the lower priced rooms (balcony, Aqua class, window). Room was clean, well maintained and everything was in good working order.

Ship Tip

Balconies are narrow so you will not be able to lounge out there unless you have a Royal Suite or higher accommodation. Push the button in very hard when you try to flush the toilet or it will not flush properly.

Ports Of Call

Cape Liberty (Bayonne), New Jersey Did not visit port

I went home and did not hang around at the port.

King's Wharf, Bermuda

3 out of 5
Not much to see or do here. The shops carry poor quality merchandise- a tourist trap. It is only useful as means of locating a cab or van to go elsewhere.

Disembarkation

5 out of 5
Easy, organized and fairly rapid once we chose to vacate the ship.
