Jersey Boys was fantastic! Six is going to Broadway! Caution: The Prohibition Show description is misleading. Take time to ask questions before reserving. Drinks were delicious, but I left after 25 min. A girl with a whip, another with bells attached to her boobs and butt was not what I thought I signed up for. NCL refunded my money for the show.

Service and Staff

All waiters served the food very professionally, but several didn’t make any effort to make us feel valued or engage in conversation.

Perfect In comfort, size, view, and cleanliness. No body lotion, so bring your own, and I miss the towel animals. NCL decided to stop towel animals to save laundry in order to save carbon footprint. Bring them back!!!

Ship tip

Sign up for racetrack, shows times, and dinner reservations in advance! Laundry service is $20 to fill a bag.

The Beverly Hills/Beaches Tour is a great way to spend 5 hours if you have a late flight. We learned some history, walked around an art show, had lunch at a food truck, and rode the Ferris Wheel on the Santa Monica pier. It was a great value considering we would have paid for transportation to the airport anyway. Plus NCL applies the $50 excursion credit.

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico

The sea lion experience was the highlight of the entire trip. Clean pools, knowledgeable staff, and delicious Mexican lunch.

Mazatlan, Mexico

The Salsa and Salsa excursion was well organized and fun! We had regular and strawberry margaritas, as well as nonalcoholic versions to choose from, for the entire excursion. We made 5 or 6 salsas including a dessert salsa. Afterwards we danced the salsa and could relax by the pool. The venue was delightful. They called for a taxi, which was included in the price, when you were ready to return to the ship.

Cabo San Lucas, Mexico

We took the coastal cruise and enjoyed the scenery. It was relaxing. FYI ...A dollar is required to use the bathroom near the pier.
