Bost to Bermuda Balcony view

Sail Date: August 09, 2013

Traveled As: Large Group

Room Type: Balcony

Our cruise started with easy "all aboard" experience, very smooth and quick. We had a balcony mini suite on 11th deck for 3 ladies to share. Plenty of room to twin beds and a couch made into a queen bed. The balcony was great to relax with a glass of refreshment at night or our room service coffee in the morning. The room stewards were very attentive without being intrusive. Escellent service.
The 2 complimentary restaurants were fine, acqua being more casual then Venetian. Menu more or less same each day. We ate at 3 co payment restaurants, Bamboo, Lacucina and The French Bistro. The food was very good and a nice change. The Blue Lagoon is opened 24 hrs, nice breakfast and a place for some good chicken wings for a snack.
We were disappointed in the Pool area, the large pool was 5 1/2 to 6 feet deep and very small. The smaller Oasis pool was walking down a steep ladder about 20 steps into a round pool 4 to 4 1/2 feet, we all felt like we were in a water tank, only did this once. Not enough lounges for the many sun bathers. It felt very crowded all the time.
The entertainment was okay. The casino was small. The ship's stores were fine.
The ship docks in Bermuda at Dockyard, not as nice as Front St. or St. Georges but the bigger ships can only go to Dockyard. The ferry is a nice choice to take you to Front St instead of cabs.
Cabs are very clean and the drivers very infomative about the island. Great to be on 1 place for 2 1/2 days.
When the cruise was over, easy exit with self walk off, you do not put your bags out the night before, next morning you are the first ones off ship, our transportaton was waiting for us.
End of perfect vacation!!!
