Review Summary

Our family has been on 7 other cruises, and we are all in agreement that this was one of the best. The ship has a lot to offer. Our wait staff was as good or better than any we have had in the past. The food quality was excellent. We wish we could have had more time in some of the ports. Also, the port in Bermuda was not ready for our stop. Taxis were next to impossible to find and overall the stop was chaotic. We also found that the entertainers in the bars fell short of expectations.

When we eventually found a taxi, we enjoyed ourselves. We took a 1 hour tour of the island and found it to be a very nice visit.

Pros: A very well managed ship, with a super friendly and helpful crew.

Cons: Ship entertainment was below par.
