Question

Are golf clubs provided on the excursions?

asked 5 months, 4 weeks ago

answer 1
Golf clubs are not included in the Wild West Kayak excursion. :)

Typically golf clubs are not included and must be rented as it's assumed you're bringing your own (so no discount if they were included). You could call the tour operator listed on the website and confirm.

One thing to consider that's not well known. I don't know if it applies in Bermuda, but if you join the Fairmont Hotel President's Club (free), one of the perks is that you are able rent TaylorMade clubs for free at their resorts. I did this on a trip to LasVegas years ago and it was nice. The Turtle Hill Excursion is at the Fairmont Resort, so if you were thinking that, it may work.

When the Breakaway docks in Kings Wharf, are there boat tenders to Hamilton? Is there a fee?

We have been to Bermuda 4 times. There are no tenders. We always get the unlimited 3 day bus/ferry pass for about $30. These can be purchased in the Welcome building or the gift shop by the ferry landing. You catch the ferry to Hamilton or St.Georges about a 2 minute walk from the ship. We explore on our own and have always found the residents to be extremely nice and helpful if we get lost. Enjoy your trip.

There are no ship tenders, but you can use either the local buses, ferries or taxi's to get to Hamilton. For the buses and ferries, there is a reasonable daily cost depending on if you purchase a 1, 2, or a 3 day pass. The passes are good on all buses and ferries, and is a nice way to travel and see the island. I am not sure the exact costs, but the passes can be purchased right at the terminal where the ship docks and this is where you can pick up either the bus or ferry. There will also be taxi's at the pier should you decide to go that route.

Question

is september a busy time to cruise?

Is mid/late September a busy week for this cruise and if so why? I figured it wouldn't be because the kids are in school and its still hurricane season, but this week is the only week all year that they are sold out of studios

During summer breaks, the cruise ships are naturally more crowded. Once schools are in session, cruise ships give discounts to attract people who didn't want to travel during the summer break. Personally, we prefer to not travel when there are too many kids on the ship. The best times are in late Sept and in Jan.
Studios are very popular and they do tend to get sold out fast because of the limited number of cabins available. You have to book early or call an NCL travel agent and check with them for options.

Mid/late September the weather is still nice in Bermuda unless there's a hurricane, kids are back in school and it's less expensive. Studios are likely sold out as others, like yourself, considered this a good time to travel.

Question

Passport CARD on Breakaway NY/Bahamas?

I'm having difficulty getting a straight answer on whether a US Passport CARD is acceptable documentation for the Breakaway NY/Bahamas cruise? Has anyone traveled on this cruise using the passport card?

answer 1
Yes the U.S. Passport Card is sufficient for sailing.
Note: If you miss your ship at its scheduled U.S. departure port and need to travel outside the U.S. to meet your ship, or should you unexpectedly need to depart the ship from a foreign port prior to the end of sailing, a passport would be required to leave or re-enter the U.S. by air. To that end, Norwegian Cruise Line strongly recommends all guests to obtain a passport for their voyage on any Norwegian Cruise Line vessel.

You don't need a passport for the Bahamas, only government issued ID -- but the Passport card specifically states on the back that it is "Valid only for international land and SEA travel between United States, Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean, and BERMUDA." (right off the back of my card). So your passport card should suffice.

On board credit.

I have on board credit, and If I link my room and the other room to my cc, how does the on board credit being credit? Will both room credit goes to my cc at the end of the cruise?

answer 1
The onboard credit you have will be deducted from any expense you have onboard the ship like shore excursion booking, specialty restaurant dining, drinks, shopping, service charge etc. You won't get a refund for it.
When you check-in at the port, they will ask you for a credit card to setup your onboard expense account. Any expenses you have will be billed to your room and in turn to your credit card. Any credits you have will be deducted from the final total.

Yes, each room account will be credited accordingly and billed to your cc at the end of the cruise. You can also keep tabs on your room accounts via the TV, iConcierge app or asking for a printout from guest services at any time during your cruise.

How do I use my cell with someone on board

My boyfriend and I will need to locate each other. Do our cell phones work as usual?

Cell phones will work on the ship but it will turn out to be very expensive especially if you want to talk to someone on the ship.
I suggest downloading the iConcierge app from your android or Apple store. The app itself is free and it will allow you to check the daily schedule, make reservations etc. For a small fee, you can add text messaging which will allow you to text anyone else on the ship.

All NCL ships have Wi-Fi.
You can purchase minutes in blocks of 30/60/100/250 or pay as you use.
Remember that the ship uses satellite communication for internet connection and it's quite slow.

The room service menu is quite limited. You won't get the full breakfast options through room service. A lot of people fill up plates in the buffet area and take it back to their room.
