Best way to see Bermuda from Boston Area

Sail Date: August 01, 2013

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

Loved this trip! Highly recommend this cruise as way to see Bermuda. Take fun friends with you and it will be much better. Take cab to tour island\, visited horseshoe bay beach\, took ferry to St. Georges\, then crystal caves\, swizzle inn (delicious rum swizzle)\, Hamilton (beer at Hog Penny)\, and shore excursion...coral reef catamaran snorkle. Lots of fun!

Pros: Le Bistro (fee restaurants)/Entertainment/Stateroom/Shore Excursion/Bermuda

Cons: Some of the food

Recommends Norwegian Dawn? Yes!

Ship Quality
Ship in excellent condition. Would be nice if it had top floor lounge with views\, but get your food at the Garden Cafe and take it up to the Bimini Bar and eat during sunset while docked in Bermuda.
Food and Dining
Mixed bag on NCL. Food in the fee only restaurants is superb. In Venetian we had two poor quality meals. We did ok in Aqua. If you add a couple hundred into your budget for meals\, the step up in quality if definitely worth it at the fee restaurants. In particular\, Le Bistro was magnificent.
Cabin / Stateroom
Balcony room on deck 9. Very comfortable and relaxing (with exception of crying baby in room next to us--in a larger handicap accessible room).
Service and Staff
Couldn't have been better. Soozy Atkins\, our Cruise Director\, was a natural and made us feel welcome and made us laugh. Also\, check out the man who serves coffee in Garden Cafe. He tells hysterical stories!
Fantastic! Check out Jose and Patti in the Atrium. I don't think they played the same song twice all week. NCL entertainment is some of the very best out there!
