WE left out of NY.. and sailed to Bermuda.. Parked at the doc.. 280 for the week.. easy park.. took elevator down to loading area.. very easy no problems at all.. Worth the cost, if you want to have your car.. You are given times to be at the doc for loading but no one followed that at all. Check in time for us was 12:30, we were there much earlier and were able to load once 12:00 came. Check in was easy, no problem at all. Once on the ship you were able to go to your cabin right away.. a fantastic feature that other ships did not have. Restarunts were open so you could eat. Music pool all ready for you to party. We sat up on a higher level so that we could wave goodbye and check out the views. We went under a bridge which was fun. The ship was clean and big... . crew members were great.. helpful.. friendly.. a little hard to understand sometimes because they are from all over the world..We had a balcony room 13712.. great views.. clean.. The ship is big.. this trip was not crowded and had A small amount of kids on it, I assume because it was Oct. I did not care for the layout of the pool area.. small for the amount of people on the ship. I did like that there was a childs pool area and a adults pool area. 4 Hot tubs around the adult pool that children were in. 2 of them had signs adults only. The pool area could have been designed a little better, not enough area to sit around the pool. Pool is small, not much room to swim during peek hours. The atrium area is used for many shows.. truly not enough room for all that want to see the show. They were putting in new carpet on the cabin room hallway floors which was a bit of a pain because you could not always get the elevator for your floor..So you had to use the stairs. Elevators were slow and said they could hold 20 people but truly only about 12. The buffet could have had better quality foods I think..and displayed better. Only 1 restaurant was open late and the same thing on the menu every day.. 3 Restaurants serve the same food.. More choices were needed.. Limited menus.. We only ate in a few restaurants. Manhattan Room was very pretty and food was very good. Free or Fee up to you. I did have Lobster one night and surf and turf another night. Both those meals were 30.00 each. Loved the Noodle Bar and the way that they served. Everyone was served together. Food was good. We played Bingo and Deal or No Deal.. Both very costly. The Second City is a improve show. Make reservations early.. they are so very funny and very good.. They have R rated times and family times. All the game shows were funny.. Mostly PG.. some R but great shows.. We did not see Burn The Floor.. One Dinner show that is a MUST is the Jungle Show. Food and Act was beyond fantastic and worth the extra money.. I was truly amazed. We paid to use the Thermal Spa. It was very nice.. Bermuda was beautiful. The weather had said rain the entire time we wee going to be there.. Guess what.. I could count the rain drops.. It was hurricane season and I was concerned , Hurricane Matthew was stirring up trouble but not for us. We did not do much while in Bermuda, I really just wanted to sit on the beach. I was worried about booking things based on the weather. Last minute I did get a mini bus booked through RC that cost us 39 each to go to Horseshoe bay Beach. It was only a 3 hour stay.. Could have saved my money and paid 7.00 each for the same type of bus andcame back when we wanted. We did that the second day. There are buses and cabs right outside the ship. Cabs are costly.. We did rent a scooter the last day and drove out across the island . Many people rented scooters for the entire time we were there. Great idea.. In the long run you will save money. Horseshoe Bay is the most beautiful beach that I have ever seen. There is a little cove area that is perfect for the little ones and the older ones. Nice waves for the ones that want that. I was just reading some other reviews and noticed that many complained about smokers. I did not see this as a problem, there was only one place that they were aloud to smoke and that did not bother us at all. I am not a smoker. Overall it was a nice ship with friendly crew. Read Less
