Default Norwegian Majesty Boston to Bermuda

My husband, 10 year old son (and huge Red Sox fan) and I are considering taking the Norwegian Majesty from Boston to Bermuda late summer 2005. We have never cruised before.

Questions: how do you choose a cabin? I certainly understand size (these cabins are small as this is an older ship) but what about location? Other than alcohol expense, what other expenses should I budget for?

Has anyone taken this particular cruise?

What about Norwegian - what is its reputation as a cruise line?


Thanks!

Suze:

I get seasick easily so I always choose a cabin mid-ship at the bottom. This is the most stable area of the ship. We book an inside cabin as we don't spend much time in the room and prefer to spend more money on other things. Last cruise we booked an inside guaranty were upgraded to an Oceanview which was a very nice surprise.

Other costs would be tips (most lines suggest $10/pp per day to be divided among your waitstaff and room steward), any alchohol, pictures, on board purchases, sodas or soda cards, shore excursions, spa services, casino, or eating in a specialty restaurant (not sure if there is one on the ship you plan to travel on).

I haven't cruised on Norwegian yet, but have friends that have several times and have had no complaints. I have been to Bermuda several times on land vacations. Its a beautiful island with friendly people. I would recommend eating all your meals on board, however, as (1) you've already paid for them and (2) I found meals in Bermuda, especially dinner, to be expensive.

Have a great time and if you have any questions feel free to email me.

Darcy

My friend and I just got back from a 9 day Carribean Cruise on the Norwegian Dawn and it was the worst cruise we have had. The food was BORING and repetative!!! Often cold. Their desserts were banana bread and some kinds of rubber pudding type stuff.......EVERY MEAL....EVERY DAY!!!!
Our cabin walls creeked continuously. We were told it was because of rougher seas!!! The waters were calm.
We complained about one of the excursions but she basically laughed in our face her smile was so big!!!!
We were NOT allowed to leave the ship when we needed to because of their "colour" rules and if not for the Delta Airline" personnel, would have missed our flight. There was no one waiting to get off..... and no excuse to not let us off the ship!!!!
BUT..... the ship DID go into dry dock after we left.... if that is going to fix the walls?????
We will NEVER sail Norwegian again..... The only person that seemed to care was our Cabin Stewart.
Oh Ya..... they didn't tell us it was the DAWN that the lady fell off the balcony a while back and drown!!!!!!! Would have not made a difference, but would have been nice to know!!!!
