July 14th Breakaway to Bermuda Cabin 11314
Embarkation: New York (Manhattan)
The casino is larger than any other casino I've been in on a ship.I was not pleased with the staff at the CAS desk. They were not very polite and considering the amount of $$ my husband and I spend in the casino I expect to be treated with a little more respect. There was an issue with our drink cards, which we were told would be in our cabins upon arrival. They were not there so we went to the desk to ask for them. I was told I needed to earn 1500 point to get one, however I already had well over 3000 points from our December cruise. CAS had informed me prior to our trip that these points were valid for this trip. After several minutes of conversation I asked for the casino manager, who said to charge the drinks while he looked into the situation. In the end, they gave us drink cards (only after earning 1500 points) and the casino manager took care of the charged drinks. HE was very nice but needs to instruct his staff on how to speak with customers. Arrogance is not the way to treat loyal CAS members, especially when I was polite and respectful toward them. I never saw a casino host, which is very unusual. The casino attendants act more like hosts than than attendants. Raphael should be a host. He was friendly and made sure the wait staff took care of us.
There are a lot of penny machines, a handful of quarter machines and a fair amount of dollar machines.
We are smokers so that was not a problem for us. There are no smoking sections in the casino but they are not clearly marked. We realized that if there are no ashtrays then it was a no smoking area.
Rock of Ages was good, I'm sure it's great for those who like that era music. Being a born and bred hippy, it did not appeal to me.
Cirque should not be missed. Excellent show! we sat in a booth in the back and I feel those seats were better than those on the floor.
Burn the Floor was good for the first 20 minutes then it became repetitive
Slam Allen was awesome. Don't miss it!
Bermuda was gorgeous! We used the public transportation system and it worked out great for us. Bermudans are very friendly people!
The breakaway is a beautiful ship, Bermuda is a gorgeous island, we will definitely sail her again! Less
