As for the Bayonne port - stay away. It is a makeshift dump of a place, I would hate to be there if it rained because there is no where to go. Bathroom access is terrible, the staff were very rude. There is supposed to be a separate entrance for VIP Suite guests but this was not the case - so again another supposed perk was a joke. My pickup truck was hit while in the cruise port lot which is very over priced. When we reported it we were given a run around and have yet to get the damage remedied nor a response. Access is easy and the surrounding hotels are very nice but the port is not. The port does have the very beautiful memorial "tear drop" from Russia to the 911 victims - whomever decided to put it here should be deported to Iran; that person or group are idiots. We would never go to this port for a cruise again.

Bermuda Triangle Cruise Rating: 1.0 out of 5+

DONT DO THIS EXCURSION - a huge waste of money, over priced. We booked it for Halloween - biggest regret of the week. Nothing to see, nothing to do - waste of time, money, and effort. Most of the excursions were very over priced. As for most of the activities-take the bus, setup your own activities. Horseshoe beach is not all its advertised to be, stop at the others before you get there. Get a bus pass or a ferry pass and ask them for help. Hamilton is another overpriced location. WE do not recommend that you plan to eat in Bermuda - order room service the night before or that morning and take sandwiches with you. Some of the bread from the dinner the night before is great to feed the fish while snorkeling. Do not take fruit off the ship. Carefully pack sandwiches in your backpack and eat on the beach. Be sure to pack water with you or snag some colas. When packing for a cruise always pack travel bottles to fill on the cruise and always have a backpack. Take your own snorkel gear - its cheap at the walmart, take a flippy float and enjoy your vacation on your schedule.

Scooter Rental Rating: 3.0 out of 5+

Will rent from another vendor when we return. No real issues just low quality and charged more than quoted. Prepaid deposit with quote but was charged $30 more when picking up scooters. DO NOT RENT A SCOOTER IN BERMUDA IF YOU HAVE NOT HAD PLENTY OF PREVIOUS EXPERIENCE. Although there are speed limits and rules of the road NO ONE abides by them including the police. Riders will brush up against you, cut in on you going down the road, cars will cut in on you or cut you short. The roads are narrow and have hills - the scooters are 50 cc and are not very fast nor peppy - a large man will go slow no matter what. Bermuda is absolutely the most beautiful island but overly expensive for no reason. Thanks to obama and the obamanites our dollar is near worthless these days. However, the cost of a bowl of soup will be near $18 USD, beers are close to $10 and are Brit liters - be aware that everyone will charge an auto gratuity so they are pretty free with how much they add and service sucks. The pastry shop near the port is great - a must see. We high recommend renting scooters and using maps to see the good stuff. The excursions are over priced and under quality. Snorkeling is great off any beach-beaches are everywhere. If you don't ride motorcycles don't rent - use the bus or one of the reasonably priced taxis. We visited the highly advertised places but found them crowded and resorted to private, smaller beaches such as Whale beach.
