Pros: good amount of time to enjoy the beaches of Bermuda, high quality entertainment, most of the food was terrific.

Cons: insufficient storage space in room for clothes, last minute raise in daily tip rates by NCL, last minute change to leave Bermuda 2 hours early on last port day, no privacy by adult only pool, no lounge beds by adult pool, no Quest game like on RC or Carnival ships, slow service to refill water glass at dinner at Cirque show.

NCL needs to add the adult only Quest night.

Service and Staff

It seems the servers wanted you to buy drinks from the bar thus causing slow service to refill water glasses at Cirque show.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
No drawers in cabin to put clothes.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
With only open cubbies of end tables by bed to store clothes, room looked slovenly with clothes hanging out. Haven't the designers of this ship heard of doors on shelves or drawers for the furniture?

Ship Tip

NCL is lacking in design when it comes to adult only pool areas. The Spice H2O is adult only but there's no pool or shade there. The adult only pool is not in a separate , private area. I prefer the design on RC Adventure of the Seas with a quiet, separate adult area with pool, Jacuzzis, and shade.
