The NCL Breakaway was beyond awesome,  but Bermuda wasn't. Weather was chilly, rainy along with 40+ mph wind gusts. We stayed in the vicinity of the port, but there was little to do there besides visit some small uninteresting shops. go to Snorkel Park which is a smelly, run down man made beach, or visit some very poorly maintained old British buildings and fortifications. We did visit Horseshoe Bay beach (which is advertised as one of their best beaches and one of the very small natural beaches on the island) but could only stay 40 minutes due to the cold water, rain, and strong gusting wind. While hiding from the wind there at the one and only snack shop/concession stand (everything they had was hugely overpriced) I was told by a cashier there that the really only time when the weather is nice and the water is bearably warm on the island is July and August. I am very disappointed in this cruise destination and will not go back or recommend it to anyone. The NCL Breakaway is being wasted on this dull destination. She should be cruising the Caribbean.

Ship Tip

Everything on the ship was great except the food in the Irish pub was so-so at best, the casino bar was making bloody marys with tomato juice instead of bloody mary mix, and our balcony was never cleaned.

Too crowded.
