Rainy Cruise to Bermuda

Sail Date: May 14, 2006

Reviewed: 11 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Suite

First time cruising on the Norwegian Crown. Now I know what they do with older cruise ships. Someone mentioned that the ship had been refurbished but they could not figure out what they did when the refurbishment took place.

Pros: The freestyle method of meals

Cons: If you were on board and had nothing to do when it was raining, there was no place to be able to sit and people watch within the ship itself.

Ship Quality
Ship had the old problem of soot on deck chairs and tables. A disaster for clothing.
Service and Staff
Sometimes they made me fell that I was disrupting their day if I had a request. Had a tough time with the reception desk over the phone due to the English language being a challenge to the non American staff. Mostly it was Pilipino.
Some of the comedy routines were a bit hackneyed in the evening shows. A lot of the day time activities on board were a disaster because no one wanted to participate.
Food and Dining
Freestyle cruising method of serving meals was great and so was the food.
Cabin / Stateroom
Nice sized room and actually had a bathroom that did not make you feel like you were in a closet.
King's Wharf, Bermuda
The fort was well worth the admission price.
Don't Miss: The glass factory. It used to be located near Grotto bay years ago. But it has since moved and is now run by the sister of the original owner. Great glass creations at a reasonable price.
St. George's, Bermuda
The three mile walk around the north end by tobacco bay was great. But few people were up to doing the walk.
Don't Miss: Tobacco Bay. It is truly beautiful.
Hamilton, Bermuda
Hog penny restaurant was a true English pub. Great service and overall atmosphere. Good true English fish & chips
