    My Trip Report

    My GF and I are heading out to Bermuda on a 7-day NCL cruise on the Breakaway sailing out of NYC on Sunday 7/10. Thanks Caesars!

    The only port of call on this cruise is Bermuda, which means that we will be out at sea in the Atlantic for three days so there will be some decent amount of degenerate gambool.

    Not sure how live this TR will be and how often I will update - all depending on the ship's wifi access.

    We cruised on this ship last year to the Bahamas, so are very familiar with the ship's amenities. I just hope that my GF doesn't go crazy with the art auction this time; last time she "won" $4000+ worth of art ... sigh. The worst part of it is that one the one free piece of art that she "won", I paid over $300 for a new frame for it.

    One more sleeps!

    Taking the LIRR into Penn station then uber over to the pier for an early boarding so we can attack the lunch spread! Very excited about this trip and the weather is cooperating.

    Breakaway is too big to dock at either St George or Hamilton. She docks at the Royal Dockyard.

    Have a great trip! Bermuda is wonderful, and you already know that the Breakaway is a really fun ship.

    Following degenerate traditions, after lunch, we took a power nap, then headed up to the casino. Bought in for $2k at craps and walked away down $1300. Then bought in for another $1k at BJ (total $3k) and played one shoe 8 deck S17, colored up this much

    Fine looking food and great start in the casino!
    I've gained 5 lbs just looking at that food - hope the rest of the cruise is just as awesome as the start.
