7 Night Bermuda (Charleston Roundtrip)
Sail Date: November 11, 2006
Ship: Norwegian Majesty
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Large Group
Reviewed: 11 years ago
Sixth cruise for my husband and I - we had 18 in our party and none would agree to cruise NCL again. Interior of ship was aged but very clean. The staff appeared disheartened by the passengers just before our cruise. Understandably as they were much worse off than we were with their vacation to Bermuda shortened to one day and many missed their airline connection due to half-working vessel. We enjoyed the crew, captain and staff as it certainly was not their fault. We do blame NCL for knowingly taking out an unworthing vessel on the high seas. We felt it dangerous and disappointing.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Liked the free-style dining


3 out of 5
Bingo on board disappointing; entertainment staff very good but the ship is outdated in comparison to the other 5 ships we have been on making it difficult to see in the Theatre and for the small stage to be of benefit to the entertainers

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Staff was great and attentative

Ship Quality

1 out of 5
Ship old, without stabalizers and only half propulsions working making it very rocky in the high seas we encountered. Many on board became seasick! All areas were extremely clean.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Exceptional stateroom staff but room definitely needed updating, including new mattress on beds

Wish we had taken an island excursion for someone to explain what we saw. Ferry ride was great, public transportation (buses good but drivers rude) along with many shop owners. Don't believe this will be on our agenda for visiting again - Beaches are beautiful but don't get your hopes up about "pink beaches" - near myth. Most reasonable eating Kathie's Kaffee - great & cheap

Pros: The 18 friends on board

Cons: Lack of communication w/Priceline and Norwegian with passengers/customers

Recommends Norwegian Majesty? No.
