7 Night Bermuda (Boston Roundtrip)
Sail Date: May 08, 2009
Ship: Norwegian Spirit
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Family (older children)
Reviewed: 9 years ago
The ship needed more activites for the average person. Too much emphasis on partying at night and Bingo (that wasn't free to play). We had read that they had things for teenagers to do, but there was nothing. Bermuda was great, but we were told to book our excursions through the ship and thought we were overcharged on some. Some of the onshore trips you can do yourself and just take a bus or taxi, you don't need the cruise ship to book it for you. I see why they offer lower prices on the cruises, they get there money out of you in so many other ways. Next time I would just fly there and enjoy the island for as long as possible, you only have 3 short days there with the cruise.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
The buffet food was just average, we were sick of it by the 4th day. The other food areas were very good. We did the Italian dinner one night ($10 per person). It is well worth the extra money. We also ate at Windows one night, this also was very good and free, but not alot of food.

There was a variety of shows at night, but some of them were just average.

The inside stateroom is not very big, but we fit 4 people in it and did fine. The staff for these rooms were awesome!!!

Dolphin Quest and Catamaran are a must. These were awesome. We weren't going to spend the money on the Dolphing Quest, but I am so glad we did.

Pros: The staff was great, loved the guys who cleaned our room everyday. They smiled all the time and at night they came in and turned down the sheets and left you mints. We felt very pampered by them! The entertainment was average.

Cons: Way too much drinking. Every time you turn around they were asking if you wanted a drink, and they weren't cheap. We took our two teenagers and there was nothing for them to do. The arcade was terrible. Our 15 year old son was actually pretty bored, he watched alot of the sports channel on tv.

Recommends Norwegian Spirit? No.
