7 Night Bermuda (Boston Roundtrip) Sail Date: September 24, 2006 Cabin Type: Inside Traveled As: Couple Reviewed: 10 years ago
This was our first cruise, and we were thoroughly impressed!! Norweigan Majesty was a great ship for its size and age (15 years old). We couldn't have asked for a better value - the food selection and quality was great overall, the service and hosptality were second to none. The variety of on-board entertainment was great, and Bermuda had lots to offer as well!
Food and Dining
5 out of 5
We could not understand why so many people chose to eat at the buffet each meal - we didn't eat there until our last day on board! With four "sit-down" dinner restaurants on board (including two "fancier" locations requiring reservations), the menu selections and qulaity was incredible. Of 20 meals, only one did not suit my personal taste - but within minutes the first dish was gone and a new selection was brought in its place - not bad!!

An incredible assortment of activities and shows, from informal trivia contests to nightly dance shows, comedy acts, juggling performances, and professional demonstrations (cooking, juggling, towel animal folding, and the like). There are numerous bars and clubs open late night, and of course there is a good-sized casino and multiple bingo sessions for those wishing to gamble!
Service and Staff
5 out of 5
We didn't meet a single staffer that wasn't trying to make our experience an enjoyable one... and since the gratuities are built in, it's not like people were going overboard (pardon the pun) to get a tip out of you - they are truly working together as a unit to make the trip enjoyable for everyone.

Keeping in mind that the ship is not the largest in their fleet (it's actually one of their smaller ships) and noting that it is 15 years old, the condition and cleanliness were more than adequate.

You really can't complain about the size... it is what it is, but was certainly adequate for two people (might have been cramped for a family of four). The bathroom was adequate as well - if you need hundreds of square feet of space, then you probably need one of the executive suites, but a regular state room is more than ample, considering we only used it for sleeping!
Take advantage of the bus passes - well worth the money! Tobacco Bay was a bit crowded on day 1 but offered excellent snorkeling. If you are looking for more secluded beaches then you must take a ride to Warwick Long Bay - we found two beaches with NOBODY there!!
Don't Miss: Probably Tobacco Bay.
