Good cruise line - but avoid Bermuda

Sail Date: August 2014
Destination: Bermuda
Embarkation: Bayonne (Cape Liberty)

Had a family cruise... with 7 cabins. Do not recommend Select Dining... especially for a medium size group. (We had 14 people). First day or so had issues with seating and getting reservations at 7PM. After this was settled, the overall cruise quality was fine.

Have seen some comments regarding food quality. Found the variety and quality was fine... Only went to buffets for breakfast and lunch... Did not got to Qsine, but some of our party did, and they were pleased.

Dining staff was very accomodating to one person in our party who had a severe food allergy. Gave him the next days menu, and he was able to order a day in advance, with the kitchen knowledgeable about the allergy.

As we all had outside cabins... most of us had the drink package (some classic and some upgraded to premium). Service and drink qualities were fine.

Re: Bermuda... try to find a different destination... it is a pretty place... but the island does not accomdate its tourists More well. Effective the week that we arrived (both the Summit and the NCL Breakaway arrive about the same time on Wednesdays)... the Bermuda transportation had cancelled the shuttle busses to the beach... so that there was about a 2 hour wait for the bus. When you have about 7,000 arriving tourists, this is a really bad idea. We were treated poorly... The buses would not even fill up, to allow room for local Bermuda residents. Would strongly recommend go anywhere else! Less

Port and Shore Excursions


As discussed above... Bermuda appears to be very diverse in their feeling about tourists...
The beach was nice (have seen better and worse)... but the transportation around the island was not good... and the costs of excursions seemed unreasonably high. Go elsewhere.
