My favorite part of the Cruise was two Crew Members Guido and Tajani, the worst part of the experience was all the children on the ship allowed in the 18 and over events like not so newly wed, battle of the Sexes and in the night Conley Shows that were inappropriate for children what they were experiencing.  Never saw the Cruise Director basically just heard him over the PA System.  The Stateroom service was horrible, one minute the bed was made but the bathroom was not and by serversa.  I've been on 6 cruises with Norwegian, the Sky 2x's, the Dawn, the Getaway, the Breakaway and there's No Escape was the worst entertainment, the worst roughness in feeling the ship moving, and the worst Crew Staff

Cabin / Stateroom
The worst experience with the Stateroom Staff, was supposed to get chocolates every night, never happened, room was always half clean.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
We didn't get off the ship on disembark mentioned until 1145 am on Saturday and we missed our flight and when we arrived to.MIA and our new flight was cancelled because of the snow storm in New York. It was a horrible experience.
Ship Quality
The public restrooms weren't clean, by mid day there was toilet paper and Piss all over the floor. This is not common at all on the other Norwegian Ships that I've been on. There was vomit in two of the sinks.8n the handicap.bathrooms
Destinations and Excursions
Tortilla was beautiful, St. Thomas was very nice also. Nassau was too short of a time to dock at 12pm and have enough time to go to Atlantis and be back at the ship by 5:30 pm that's a waste money for families.
Onboard Activities
Never saw the Cruise Director basically was too busy, saw Andre alot in the different actvities.
Children's Programs
Too many children and they were allowed in 18 and over venue and as a DCF Social Worker Norwegian is compromising the morals of a child.
Get rid of the after midnight show its horrible.
Service and Staff
It felt like we were on a ship that everyone was in training and didn't know what they were doing.
Food and Dining
The food and dining was always the same the variety was the same as on other ships.


There were only two good shows the Brat Pack and the juggling Show. The Comedy show was very good. Get rid of the after midnight show doesn't have a theme or story line. Margaritaville was the best and the servers were amazing every one of them.
