Review summary

It was terrible. A cruise to nowhere. NCL only makes it to their private island 20% of the time. Bait and switch!

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

Food was good particularly the specialty restaurants

Onboard Activities

2 out of 5
Fitness center way too small. Over crowded all day everyday. Since one of the stops was cancelled the pool was packed. Had to lug deck chairs up one deck and make our own space

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Same size as all balcony rooms we've had on NCL. Comfortable bed. Plenty of room for 2 people

Ship tip

Be prepared to vacation with a lot of little children and their parents who are taking a vacation from parenting. I never saw such bad behavior!

Ports of call

Port Canaveral, Florida

Waste of time to stop here. NCL should stop 2 nights in Nassau. Kennedy Space Center is great but NCL excursion give you a measly 4 hours to see everything. You need at least 8 hours

Nassau, Bahamas

2 out of 5
Spent the day at Atlantis which was outrageous for a day pass. Cab drivers swarm as soon as you exit the pier looking to rip you off.

Great Stirrup Cay (Cruise Line Private Island), Bahamas Did not visit port

Seas were too rough to tender passengers but, NCL knew this before we left NYC

Disorganized!!! Got in line AFT... moved with the line FORWARD only to wind around back to the AFT part of the ship. Took 45 minutes to disembark
