We chose this cruise because it left from our usual cruise port and was going to Bermuda. The port was Canaveral which we find exceptionally efficient! Embarkation processing was as fast as we could walk. Cabins were ready by 1:30 and our luggage showed up prior to dinner (we did not have FTTF or elite status). Cabin stewards offer AM, PM, or twice a day servicing, extra pillows and towels when they come to greet you. Our steward was nice and did a pretty good job. The tide bar and blue iguana bar seemed the best at getting a drink fastest, though we never found issues with getting a drink (except in the MDR for dinner) even if the bars were busy. The buffet for lunch was different. It seemed to be busy all the time. The options for meals were pretty small (except dessert during the chocolate extravaganza - wow). Guy's burgers were awesome as always and the service fast there. The taco/burrito bar at the Blue Iguana were wonderful too. Dinner in the Steakhouse was fabulous! I highly recommend it! Our servers were Malana and Pani - Wonderful. The alchemy bar is great for martinis - Vera was the best bartender!! Red Frog Pub was fun as was the server we most often saw - Anthonie. He's hilarious and a treat all his own. We enjoyed the music of Liz & Lucas - they were really really good! Unfortunately they did not often play in the evenings when we were in the Red Frog Pub or Atrium. We'd liked to have seen more of them at night. If you get the chance to see The Sea Sharps with Surplus of Diggity - do. They are remarkable. The female singer is top notch as is the brass section! We usually enjoy the casino on cruises, but this one had such poor ventilation that we never used it at all. It's situated in the middle of deck 5 and unfortunately you must go through it to get from one end to the other - there is no walk around hall. If the doors are locked to outside (which was the case most of our trip due to winds), you have to go up/down stairs, cross over then back down/up to the other side to get across without going through the horrific smell of the casino. The one and only time we went through it we had to go back to the cabin to change clothes right away. It was rough. Our cruise stopped in Bermuda and Grand Turk. We rented a taxi for a tour in Bermuda and they did a great job. It's a very interesting and beautiful place. In Grand Turk we rented a golf cart which worked well for driving around the island. We also stopped at Jack's Shack which was fun to see. The beaches are beautiful and all open to the public to enjoy.

Cabin Review

Balcony
Cabin 8E 9284
The cabin was as expected per web site description. There was a stain on the curtain but that is part of wear and tear to me, no big deal. Otherwise the cabin was clean. The beds were a bit firm for me but our travel blow-up mattresses made it comfy. The A/C worked well which is a big plus. The tv mount allowed it to move toward the bed more but not toward the couch/desk area much. The bed is by the balcony, not the bathroom. The cabin requires that you keep one Sign and Sail card in a slot to retain power to the lights. We found that an old gas gift card worked fine for that so we didn't keep leaving one card in the room by accident. The shower has a curtain that had 2 places detached from the hooks, broken. We had some clips that helped with that.
Again, the little things mentioned here are really no big deal to us I mention them in case it helps someone else that has this cabin booked.

  • Golf Cart Rental
    We looked for one mentioned here, but didn't find them. We were corralled by someone that took us outside the gate a bit but gave us a good price and agreed to include gas. They provided a map and gave us ideas on where to go. We returned the cart where it came from when we were done.
