Review Summary

Bermuda is beautiful with the amazing warm aqua waters, pink sand and changes in terrain.  The island is very clean and safe.  People are very friendly and laid back.  There is no pushy natives attempting to sell their goods.  That said, the weather in July is hot and humid.  Food, transportation and shopping are very expensive.  Fish and Chips at a local outdoor tavern runs about $25.

The ship got into port around 1 pm and left the next day at 2 pm.  There was not a true full day to enjoy the island.  I took a mini van tour the 1st day and went to the beach the 2nd day.  This cruise ship is one of RCL's oldest although rooms have been updated.  It was small and outdoor pool and deck was very crowded especially with children.  I would guess they don't have many activities to keep children entertained so it is up to parents and other guests.  The solarium is adults only but the roof is glass and does not open so there is absolutely no breeze in there.  It felt like being in a greenhouse.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
More storage than some larger ships. I would prefer bed next to balcony but this had bed closer to entrance

Ship Tip

Get to games and events very early to get a seat. Adults only pool is very hot and humid part of ship. Eat all meals in formal dining room. Don't waste money on the speciality dining. Expect long lines for cafe food and Starbucks coffee.
