We weren't sure that our teenager would have enough to do on the cruise and not convinced that she would join in with the Entourage group without knowing anyone. We were totally wrong. She never wanted to leave and is still in contact with the group. The Director really knew how to get the kids socializing and planned great activities for them. That opened up more opportunities for the adults to participate in different games like Yes or No, see all of the shows, try Mojito tastings and Pamper Classes, etc. The activities for teenagers didn't start until later in the day so we didn't have to pry her away from them to at least spend some time with us. The entertainment was great, there were lots of choices for dining and plenty of places for quiet reading in the sun or shade. Bermuda is lovely and it was great to have just one stop for an few days because there's so much to do and see. We went to two beaches, the Crystal Caves, took a sunset Catamaran cruise, went snorkeling, had a nice lunch and went shopping and sightseeing in Hamilton.

Cabin Review

Balcony
Cabin BB 10210
Really like the cabin. The location was perfect because it was a full floor of cabins so there was no noise, the aft section stateside was not as affected by waves, and the balcony really made it seem more spacious. It was great to sit out on the balcony watching us dock or just reading while others were still sleeping. We had a connecting cabin to the other half of our family, with 3 in each room. Because we knew it would be tight, we brought a pocket hanger meant for shoes and hung that on the bathroom door, filling each pocket with all of the toiletries, meds, and everything that would usually crowd the bathroom counter. There was plenty of room to store all of the suitcases and the beds were comfortable. We were pleasantly surprised by the movies available to slow us down at night and the connecting doors made it a real family get-away. We were disappointed that we were not allowed to open the connecting door on the balcony because that was one of the things that sold us on the rooms.
