  3. Norwegian Escape
Always wanted to go to Bermuda and thought a cruise would be a wonderful way to go since hotels on Bermuda are very expensive you would already have your room and board. There were just under 5,000 passengers on this cruise (Norwegian Escape) TOTALLY over crowded. Enough room to sleep that many people but the common areas were SO over crowded and at any given time no where to sit. Forget about finding a lounge chair outside, if you didn't get up at dawn you could not get a lounge chair. Our Cabin Mini-Suite was fantastic and our Stateroom Steward was wonderful. Service was impeccable, they ran a tight ship. We were locked out of the night time shows and entertainment because what they didn't tell you is as soon as you got on the ship you had to reserve the shows. We found this out to late and were locked out of all the shows. Had to stand on the stand-by line (arrive at least a half an hour early to do that) to have any chance of getting in. That also goes for reserving the specialty dinning, we were locked out of several of the restaurants. Took a Shore Excursion everyday. The one I loved the most was the "Waves and Caves" The other two I thought were over priced and not what they described in the excursion pamphlet. Was charged $139.00 For a tour, lunch and you could walk to see 6 beaches..... Clearwater Beach excursion. The tour guide was not even on our bus so the buss driver was our guide....Not knowledgable. We could of bought a bus ticket for $10.00 round trip. I also found on this cruise that they were catering VERY MUCH to the Haven clientele, nothing wrong with that but large sections were roped off for them. I have been on many cruises and JUST DID NOT LIKE THIS ONE. Sorry Norwegian
