Had a wonderful time. Entertainment crew was excellent. Food was not great but ok. Room was spacious compared to others. Loved the smaller ship.

Original embarkation was fairly quick and easy. Embarking after port calls were very slow....could definitely take some pointers from other cruise lines to speed things up. Norwegian is very quick and have spoiled us : )

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Drink prices were a little cheaper than other cruise lines (did not buy drink package). Would liked to have had option to purchase bottled water for rooms....thirsty often. Buffet food was not great and was downright bad the last night on board. Pizza and burgers were always good. Food in dining room was good and our server was excellent.

Shows were good but got very full quickly. Evening entertainment was great, entertainment crew did great job. Wally is amazing....SUPER personable, funny, entertaining and a GREAT dancer both in the bar and theater on staff night.

Ship Quality

Ship was very clean, room was cleaned several times a day. Layout of ship was good except for having to walk through dinning room to get from front to back of ship areas.

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
Bed was a little to firm (I like a medium firm). Room was always clean and roomy enough. Shower was VERY small, showered with curtain open and dried floor afterwards.

Ship tip

Small bar restaurant at enterence/exit of theater has great snacks, sandwiches, chips and guacamole.

Waste of a stop if you ask me. Port was created just for cruise ships....lots of shopping. Port close to an hr from anything. No real feel for going to Mexico. Taxied to Myanmar ruins was ok but if you've ever been to ruins, they are all the same. Boring stop.

Lovely little island to hang out on beach. Light show was very nice. Music played during evening waiting on show and parade was horrible.....filthy valgur rap music played very loud...not suitable for children or for relaxing for adults, best suited for twenty something heavy bar drinkers.


4 out of 5
Slow compared to other cruise lines.
