Many will review the ship, the excursions, the food and the service and be very picky on each individual item.  I am looking at the vacation as a whole and looking at the entire experience as one that made a wonderful impression.  Yes, the food became mundane after 12 days - but we were able to make it better by requesting alterations to the menu and the staff was more than accommodating !  Our stateroom attendant made sure we were taken care of with our odd hours and we always had clean towels and freshly made beds and the most wonderful towel animals.  The cruise director staff ensured that the entertainment and events were geared to all ages and interests and the parties were all ages which was welcoming.  The dance classes were super fun and we became trivia addicts.  I cant say anything bad about any of the service we experienced from start to finish.  We also enjoyed the excursions and the way NCL was able to ensure everyone made it to their appointed tours on time was wonderful and very smoothly handled.  


The entertainment was outstanding - from Burn the Floor, to Rock of Ages and then Oh What a Night - and who can forget the crew talent night - the crew themselves are some of the most talented.  They actually sing while serving meals and greeting you for breakfast..... "washy, washy, happy, happy" :)


We had such a great time, we even booked our next cruise while we were on the ship !  

Cabin / Stateroom
It was surprisingly larger and roomy - 3 of us fit comfortably - but there is never enough closet space :)
Embarkation and Disembarkation
There are always lines - never can avoid the lines, but things move very quickly and the NCL staff are amazingly patient and always smiling !

Food and Dining


When ordering food from any of the restaurants (complimentary) - you can tailor the food to meet your dietary needs. Do not be afraid to ask. Shanghai Noodle Bar is one of the best meals and they are extremely friendly - go after 6:30pm if you do not want to wait.
