It was for our Son & Daughter-In-Laws 30th Anniversary. We went with them and our Daughter and Son-In-Law, so there were 6 of us to celebrate. Our cruise started out with our Daughter-In-Law volunteering us for the married over 50 year couple at the Not So Newlywed Game. It was fun to do it with the love and support from our married children. From that moment on we were referred to The Campers by anyone who was at the show, we could not get on or off an elevator without a funny comment. It made the whole week fun. The food was delicious and there were plenty of choices, I was disappointed that escargot, filet mignon, and lobster tails were not offered. We had the creme brulee after one dinner but it was not offered again, it is one of our favorites and it was delicious. We enjoyed the selection at the Garden Cafe, it was always stocked with fresh food, clean and neat. The personnel were friendly, helpful and nice. We also went to the Grand Pacific on embarkation day but did not go back as our stateroom was forward and it was a long walk. We enjoyed our dinner at the Orchid Garden, the food was also very good. Our favorite's were mid ship at O'Sheehan's and Magenta. Less crowded, always friendly and the service was wonderful. O"Sheehan's was a relaxing place to hang out for the shows in the atrium or just sit by a window to watch the ocean go by. Or just sit on our balcony and relax. We had a really good time with our family on this cruise.

Cabin Review

Family Balcony
Cabin B3 9030
The cabin was big enough for the two of us, the bed was comfortable and balcony big enough. However the bathroom was not big enough, the shower room was adequate but toilet area did not have enough room to sit comfortably to do your business. My husband's knees touched the wall and he had no foot room. We asked if we could move to a larger room but this cruise was fully booked. Ultimately he took his shoes off when he went to the lav and made the best of it.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

  • King's Wharf
    This is a nice port to walk around, take the free trolley and explore on your own. Plenty to do and see, lots of shops and restaurants or you can take the free NCL ferry to St George at the other end of the island which was very pleasant. Thank you NCL for providing the free ferry. We enjoyed St George and the public dunking. Ate at the White Horse and walked around. Then took a Bermuda bus back to the Dockyard as a sightseeing tour on our own.
