Review summary

Relaxing cruise with a great staff and delicious food. I would have liked more onboard activities honestly but what was provided was nice. there were too many money-grabs disguised as entertainment...i.e. Bingo ($70 for a bing card is crazy) The casino could have used a diversity of machines. All of the machines were slots so if you don't like that, you had to play table games.

Embarkation

We needed more info about the actual boarding time because we didn’t eat thinking we’d be able to board right after our 9:30a check in not at 12:30p. It was uncomfortable and created an unnecessary bottleneck and crowd

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
One of the specialty restaurants that we tried was great. We read reviews and selected the best on board so we thought. The steakhouse was underwhelming while the French bistro was not to be missed. The BBQ place “Q” was super overpriced and not at all worth the visit unless you have a dining package. For over $13 we got a laughably small appetizer and for over $20 a half filled plate of loaded fries. The buffets were fantastic and fast ad never over crowded. The dining rooms Taste and Savor, by far had the best service on the boat.

The staff was phenomenal as always with cruises. The cruise director though was meh.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Always clean and comfy. The observation deck was sick a gem and if you can get a room on 15 to be close then do it!

Beautiful room with great bathrooms! We actually had suite 15172 with balcony

Ship tip

Use spice H20 which is the adults only pool area. So awesome

Ports of call

Royal Naval Dockyard, West End, Bermuda

It’s crazy far from the towns to visit and there is nothing around but flea market like shopping but not in a good finds kind of way. Our excursion was cut short due to weather but the Restless Native Snorkeling adventure was fun. Great crew

Disembarkation
