This was a 50th wedding ANNIVERSARY cruise for my parents planned for all 21 of us. 5 daughters, 2 husbands, 11 grandchildren(ranging ages 31-2) + one wife. The embarking process was a bit chaotic. We felt rushed and no one took our luggage. However, once on board there was something for everyone on the ship for all the ages. The overall trip was great but in some areas there were too many people. You couldnt get into the one pool unless you wanted to be a sardine.All the hot tubs were packed as well. Good luck getting lounge chairs. Go to the pools etc. at night when everyone is at dinner or shows. That being said the drink package was amazing and worth every penny. The food was delish and in plenty especially at the Garden Cafe.The shows were great and daily agendas had shows, games,music, painting classes & Kid club events etc. The casino wasnt our thing which was one whole floor and wreaked of smoke which we tired to avoid.The complimentary & speciality restaurants were awesome and you didnt have to wait long for seating. However, no one seemed to like La Cucina. Bermuda was perfect and would love to go back.

Cabin Review

Family Inside Stateroom
Cabin I1 5764
The cabin was nice(5 of us) even though we didnt have a balcony. We had a queen bed, full pullout couch and a bunk bed that comes down from the ceiling. The staff was amazing. Kept making up the beds a few times a day if necessary. Everyone was friendly and accommodating.

  • Glass Bottom Boat
    The captain was a local with lots of knowledge of the area and nature. Gave us an hour to explore and snorkle.

    Took a bus to Horseahoe bay. It has bathrooms, a bar with drinks/food and umbrella, chair & buggie boatd rentals. The beach is beautiful & very clean. Move down the beach if you dont want to be in the crowd

    Went on the bottom boat cruise with snorkeling
    It was awesome. We saw sea turtles and tons of tropical fish in the beautiful clear water of Bermuda.
