7 Night Bahamas & Bermuda (New York Roundtrip)

Traveled As: Family (older children)

The ship was beautiful and spotless. The staff very friendly. Lots of activities all day and night. Our entire family enjoyed the shows and the food. The amount of time spent on the islands is limited. We only had a night and the morning in the bahamas.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Food well presented and good variety in the sit down restaurants. Chocoholic buffet was outrageous!! The Garden cafe food, which is buffet, was average.

A little on the small side. Not enough storage for 2 people, never mind 3 in one room.

Not enough time here in Nassau. We shopped at night for a short amount of time. It's was a little scary shopping at night in a port you've never seen in the light. You are bombarded by the residents trying to sell you their wares or give you a ride in their cab. The port area is a little run down too. We went on the Dolphin encounter excursion in the morning and it was wonderful. The dolphins actually hug you by jumping up on your shoulder.

We walked to snorkel beach and spent most of the day there snorkeling and swimming. Very small beach and not crowded. I think most people took cabs or buses to other parts of Bermuda.

Beautiful beach. Plenty of chairs but they are on top of each other. The barbeque was good. Parasailing was fun!

Pros: food, entertainment

Cons: long disembarkment lines
