This was overall our 14th cruise and 3rd with NCL.
PROS: the ship was beautiful, clean, well maintained and had lots to do. The food was good, but not extraordinary the employees friendly and there were plenty of things to do. There was a ropes course, a mini golf course, rock climbing wall, people size chess game, video games, trivia contests, pool games and much more. You could be busy all day or not at all. We liked the comfortable dress attitude, however, when we tried to make a reservation for dinner for our large group we were told that the reservations for the night were filled. Each night due our size - 8 - we had to wait for dinner. JULIE the Cruise Director was fabulous, she even jumped in on some of the dance shows. Fireworks on the open ocean - really cool.
ICE BAR: Gotta go just so you can say you did!! Really cool and really cold!!
CONS: Overall my husband and I felt that they were trying to fit TOO MUCH stuff on the ship. The hallways were barely wide enough for the workers cart and one person - two people could not walk side by side down any hall. WE had a balcony room and felt the set up could be better - the space between the closet door and the bed was approximately 18 inches. NO LOBSTER night - my children were very disappointed. NEVER saw my room steward--dirty cups were never removed. POOLS: Were small and there were only 2 of them.
