My husband and I booked a cruise for our honeymoon. I wanted to go to Bermuda and I was thrilled to find out we would stay for 3 days. The ship was huge and I think too big and over crowded. We found this out trying to reserve a seat for shows and for the specialty restaurants; all booked for the week and we were on the ship the first night . The pool was always packed and deck chairs never available. The adult pool was tiny for the amount of people and the average size of the people; who were enormous. The hot tubs filled with people who never left. The lines for the water slides and the Rope course am hour minimum. The kid pool was closed down one day because someone defected in it. Too many people and too much garbage and dirty glasses and unbelievable poor manners of these people . Dirty feet on tables and furniture, waking around wet with no pants and shirtless men. This is the “people of Walmart” cruise. Trashy. People passing in public. Disgusting. The 3 restaurants; the Manhattan, the Taste and the Savor were included and the food was garbage . Rubbery chicken, over cooked meat, mashed potatoes that taste like cardboard and everything salty . By day 2 everyone was bloated and packed on like sardines . Every minute the crew tries to upsell you if you do a facial or massage; they try to get you to get the more expensive or to do acupuncture or Botox or an activity is extra for example Deal or no desk $25 for a card, painting is $35 to participate. We booked a massage and the therapist tried to up sell us to do a more expensive massage then told us to buy $179 Epsom salt and a $67 brush . Not relaxing at all because they don’t shut up either to try to get you to give up more money or to insult you . During my facial I was told i should get Botox. I really do mod want some ocean doctor standing botulism into my face ! Bermuda was good but do not buy any excursions on board because it’s $70 more than waking to the island tour center , take the bus for $2.75 not a taxi for $43 or a shared bus for $7.00. The ferry is ok but infested with roaches. Everyone off the ship is trying to separate you from you money as well so be careful . This vacation was absolutely horrible. The filipino crew will give you nightmares with the way the say “ goooood moooorniiing” and the stupid “washy washy”. Never cruising again . Norwegian ruined cruises forever .
