Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Jun 2017
  • Destination: Bermuda
  • Cabin Type: Mid-Ship Inside

Chose this cruise as we wanted to go to Bermuda and the access was better in Boston than it would be in New York. Have taken one cruise out of New York, and that will be the last, and I didn't have to drive to the cruise port as I have to now due to my husband's confinement to a wheel chair. Embarkation went smoothly with lots of help. Debarkation took longer due to waiting for assistance, but went smoothly. We had an accessible room which was very large and well arranged. The only drawback was that there was only one American style electrical outlet, and several things had to be plugged in at once - his breathing machine, wheelchair charger, etc. We had brought two 4' power strips which plugged together met out needs. Later NCL provided us a single longer power cord with multiple outlets to use. Meal were excellent in main dining rooms, specialty restaurants, and buffet. We got lots of assistance in seating and with the meals. We had seen many of the major shows before on other NCL ships, but greatly enjoyed them again. Especially Elements was outstanding and Soul Duo is phenomenal! Wheelchair seating could have been better. Got to take a tour of Bermuda on a 5 hour excursion in a minibus with a chair lift that accommodated my husband in his wheelchair. Very informative and enjoyable tour. Also were able to take the NCL provided ferry to St. George's for the day. Most of that area has step ups to all restaurants and shops so not wheelchair accessible. A tour guide tole us about a back entrance to the historic church and they have an entrance ramp also so we enjoyed touring it. Crew and staff provided excellent service. Would definitely take this cruise on the Dawn again.

Island Tour

Very informative tour guide. Enjoyed a tour of the entire island, with stops for photos whenever you asked. Nice stop in St. George's. Excellent driver. Minibus was well designed for wheelchair access.
