Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

Arrival and departure were good, food was great, best value to get the Bar PP package, ship was nice for the size and age of the ship.  Clean.  Waiter and assistant waiter in the main dining room were more than accommodating, Excellent service.  Great personalities and were fun.  Windjammer restaurant was very good with a wide variety of food.  I would like to have had two full days in Bermuda, arriving at 3pm, than one full day and leaving by noon, was just not enough time to explore the island.  Ferry ride to the capital of Hamilton and the city itself were wonderful. 

The main problem was smoking passengers, not staying in the smoke areas and the smoke areas themselves were the entire starboard side of the pool deck with no real division, closed off area or proper ventilation. Passengers/Children were subject to the second hand smoke. Going to the pool bar for a drink sometimes meant breathing in smoke.  The Casino was impossible to go to, too much smoke and  even a quick walkthrough had you smelling like an ashtray upon leaving, so we did not use the casino.

We enjoyed the trip, would like to go back to Bermuda, but they really need to fix the smoking.

Cabin / Stateroom
I would prefer a little more space, would go for the balcony next time
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Ship Quality
Smoke free ship would be excellent. Was clean, age starting to show. Wifi could be better considering what I paid for it.
Destinations and Excursions
Two full days in Bermuda would be much better than two partial days and one full day. Not enough time on the partial days
Onboard Activities
Shows were good.
Service and Staff
Marissa and her assistant Kampang in the Main Dining room were excellent
Food and Dining
Good food


Go for the larger cabin.
