Itinerary: Bermuda

My husband and myself were on the cruise that was suppose to go to Bermuda on September 7th our of Boston. We have sailed on the Majesty twice before to Bermuda. We call NCL the day before we sailed so we knew that we would be going to Nova Scotia. If we had not taken the exact same trip on RCCL the year before it would have been more enjoyable.

I agree that there is really nothing to do in Sydney. The scenery is beautiful and the residents could not be nicer, but for tours etc at that time of the year there is really nothing to see. Even the trees have not changed colors yet.

I really like Halifax, but after being there twice already there is nothing much left to see.

You have to tender into Bar Harbor and it was a very slow process. By the time we got to shore, we only had a few hours before we had to go back to the ship.

Newport was a horror show. We had bus tour tickets and we were suppose to be on the first tender. It had problems and when we had almost reached the dock it died and we had to wait to be pulled in by another tender and then we also it a yacht in the harbor. The international boat show was in Newport that weekend plus the Norwegian Sea had docked before us. It was very crowded and we had to return to the ship as soon as the tour ended to sail back to Boston.

The Majesty crew did what they could to make the trip pleasant, but the cruise line could have done more.

Everyone expected the cruise line to as least give an onboard credit, but only a small amont of money was returned from the port charges.

We sailed on the Majesty for the first time when it was still the Royal Majesty and not much of the inside of the ship has changed since then. They really need to redo the ship. The carpets are getting very threadbare, and the seating in the lounges is the same as in 1996.
