A Quick Break to One of Our Favorite Places

Sail Date: October 04, 2014

Reviewed: 2 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

The ship is beautiful, but the art - spectacular! Every piece from photographs, to paintings, to carvings and amazing hanging metal sculptures were a joy to behold. Food was good, but not outstanding. Entertainment was very enjoyable. Lots of variety. Fun for everyone. 

     Our only complaint is the teeny, tine room 'divider' that wasn't. Approx.18" from the wall when extended, it did not portend to divide the room.  It was something we looked for before booking ( and passing up another line that was honest enough to say they had NONE), since we were sharing tbe room with our adult, handicapped son.  Obviously the cruise lines would rather sell another stateroom, but in our particular case, it wasn't something we felt comfortable doing.  

Ship Quality
Beautiful public spaces- nice variety of lounges
Food and Dining
We opted for Dine Anytime, which turned out to be Anytime they chose to seat us. We tried to eat at 7:00, but 3 times could only east @ 5:45. We at in the Windjammer - their cafeteria.
Service and Staff
Both comedians we saw - very funny!
Onboard Activities
Destinations and Excursions
We used a van to take us to Horseshoe Beach, & the public ferry to go to Hamilton
Cabin / Stateroom
The width of the privacy curtain is exactly as shown in this photo. On our last cruise, it stretched across the width of the room, to give PRIVACY.
Cape Liberty (Bayonne), New Jersey
1 1/2 hr line to get to the terminal. we would have been early
King's Wharf, Bermuda


If you can choose your dinner time in advance -do it. The cruise line ends up adding all of the "Gratuities" onto your bill at the end anyway.
