Our cruise experience

Sail Date: July 03, 2010

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Balcony

The ship itself is huge and beautiful. The shops are somewhat limited and the food in the sit-down dining room was very uneven -- sometimes it was great, others it was quite poor. Lounge chairs fill up fast and the staff doesn't really control "saving" while passengers leave. We observed very poor behavior by a very few passengers who tossed other people's belongings onto the deck because they were left on their lounge chair even tho' they had left for more than the 30 min. limit.

Pros: Service was fine, ship is beautiful and well maintained, AC was a blast!

Cons: Food was uneven - some excellent, some inedible; jr. suite was smaller than expected and drawer space was quite limited. Extra charges got annoying (for soda) as was the check in and check out of towels each day.

Ship Quality
King's Wharf, Bermuda
The staff on land at the pier, especially those from the ferries, were outright obnoxious. When asked where we get off the ferry, they replied, "Where did you get on?" When landing a distance from the ship, we asked how to get back to the ship, they replied, shouting, "You walk!" They failed to mention that there was a free mini-train shuttle.
Don't Miss: Nothing at King's Wharf, but the Crystal Caves in Hamilton is a must see. However, there is an entry to the beach right there at no cost which they don't tell anyone.
