The trip down was a little rough due to a storm front and 7-12' waves, but very smooth considering the weather. The meals were very good in the Venetian Dining room, with lobster tails and steak, to prime rib. We did have a birthday celebration on formal night which was a surprise to my wife. I took her to Cagney's for a great filet and I had rib eye. The creme brulee was great.
The comedy with Ted Kaminski was not to be missed. Of course the ship crew show on the last night also was not to be missed.
We took the five house mini bus tour of the island upon Sunday arrival. It gave us tour of the entire island with stops for shopping, photos, etc. The next day we took the ferry to/from St Georges. Very nice trip.
Gratuities being included with drinks was fine (since not everyone has a drink). The few dress code requests for Freestyle were fine, if anything too relaxed. This was all explained on NCL sites and catalogs before we booked the trip.
The cruise took one day to go down to Bermuda and two days to return to Boston. We would have preferred an additional day in Bermuda.
