Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 2 years ago
Again, as a couple we enjoy all the perks of NCL and their newer ships. Freestyle all the way for us, upgraded to balcony spa stateroom with dining option. Did not make plans specifically for Bermuda as with 3 days in port we fig we would find plenty to do and we aren't super high maintenance. Was really just a good excuse to go away for a week rather to enjoy the weather. Beautiful time in the spa where all the heat was! Huge disappointment day 2, there was a fire on the island which stopped all public trans. and taxi services so we could go nowhere but the generic "it's right here at least" coral world kinda park/bar right off the cruise docks. Yuck...waters cold, nothing to see, crowded because there were no options. Back on the boat for spaffet time (thats buffet then spa or spa before buffet, remember its freestyle baby!)
I may be persuaded to try Bermuda again in the peak summer maybe but honestly I wasn't wowed by the small bit we saw and had way better experiences in southern carrib. stops. The island was clean and friendly however and the weather wasn't a total bust so once again, NCL did its part and we had a good time away.
O'sheehans remains, to this day, the only restaurant on the Breakaway we havent eaten at. It really is like the Applebees of the ship and should be demolished for a cool authentic street taco stand. Tacos rule!
