This was an awesome cruise and so easy. We drove right in and got right on the boat. I would do this cruise every year if I could! The Irish pub, the buffet and the dining was always so delicious.

Expectations Not Met on Bermuda Cruise

Mismatched for our family. will never cruise NCL again. Quality of Celebrity and even RCL FAR better. Smoking prevalent and horrid. Specialty restaurants great--best thing on cruise BY FAR. Other dining either just okay or really bad. The ship is constantly LOUD--there is no elegance. This was pricier than Celebrity and gave us far less. I am unsure how this rating system works and the questions are not broken down enough to give accurate ratings. Specialty restaurants are 5's while other options are at best 1/2

See above comments regarding Internet Cafe Manager. HIGHLY UNPROFESSIONAL AND RUDE TO GUESTS. A generally great experience. Los Lobos is EXCELLENT, Cagney's, as always, is a great meal. Nice offerings in Blue and Aqua. I always recomend a 4 Unlimited Dining Package on this cruise and enjoyed the food. The "Elements" show was a highlight, always enjoy "Deal or No Deal" and the Music Trivia. Good layout for lounging and relaxing and Bermuda is a great port. Again, I was APPALLED at the Internet Cafe Manager and his utter and complete lack of respect for guests.

This was the first vacation that my husband and I have taken alone in about 10 years that didn't involve one of my son's sporting events and we had an amazing time. The Dawn was a wonderful host and Bermuda is always beautiful! We wouldn't hesitate to do it again and have recommended it to everyone!

I like the smaller ships for you don't get overwhelmed as with the bigger vessels. It's a more personal and relaxing atmosphere.

Staterooms were too small and cramped, but overall it was comfortable. Free room service for breakfast was a great option.
