Children's Programs
With a fourteen year old daughter, the "teen" activities were a little bit too young for her. She was bored the first day, until we let her walk around and meet some other kids her age.
Once she met up with people and made friends she was happy. But the activities really didn't match the age range.
Ship Quality
The ship was large, clean, luxurious and well laid out.
Food and Dining
Dining hall food was excellent. Windjammer cafe was very good. Both had many choices. However it really is a pain to have a specific dining time, because on some days we wanted to eat early and some days we wanted to eat late. You can't plan each day in advance like that.
Cabin / Stateroom
Since it was three of us, I wanted to get a big room, and I was not disappointed at all. Very spacious and roomy.
Service and Staff
Wow, these people better be paid good, because their service was outstanding. EVERYONE we dealt with on the ship was so wonderful to us.
The ice show was fantastic! The love and marriage game show was hysterical. The quest show was outrageous! However, the schedule of everything was hard to organize. It seemed that on some nights, you didn't know which entertainment option to go with. Some shows were completely packed and others were half empty. Based on the times of your dining, it was challenging to schedule your daytime activities with the after dinner ones.
King's Wharf, Bermuda
Hamilton was nice, but everything closes at 5pm, so we didn't get too much of a chance to shop by the time we got there. The Horseshoe Bay beach was gorgeous.
Don't Miss: Horseshoe Bay
