Great vacation but...

Sail Date: June 21, 2015

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Balcony

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.

Service and Staff
Children's Programs did not use
Onboard Activities
The activities were great, but the Atrium where they hold them is too small.
Destinations and Excursions
We did the scuba diving, more time talking than scubaing...instructors were great and patient
Ship Quality
Rooms felt a little tight
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Great we arrived around 1:30pm and pretty much walked right on. Disembarkation: a little longer, but not too bad
Cabin / Stateroom
Felt cramped - room between bed and closet door too small - 18" MAX
Balcony smaller than usual
Bed was comfortable


Manhattan Restaurant is nice and even better if you can get a table by the window.
Ice Bar - a gotta go to
