Review summary

Norwegian does an amazing job! They spared no expense for their nightly included shows! The dancers, actors, and performers are truly amazing at what they do. This is where Norwegian truly shines. Also, I love the food in the sit down restaurants, and I love that they have more choices. Shanghai was delicious! O'Sheehan's was a family favorite.

It's just complete craziness when you get on the ship. Standing in line and getting checked in went smoothly, although the wait was long. However, once we got on board, there is only one group of elevators. People are so rude, jumping in front of other people with families and disabilities that are not as quick to get on the next available elevator. While some people only have to wait a minute or two, others are left waiting 10-15 minutes just to get on an elevator. It would be great if Norwegian could have a line roped off here and a couple of crew working the line, so it truly is first come, first serve. Also, it would be great, if they would close these elevators for a time going to other floors except for maybe one or two of them, so they just work from the embarkation floor to dropping people off for the first couple of hours until people get dispersed to other parts of the ship. It felt like it took a long time for elevators to come down to the embarkation floor, and it did not feel like all elevators were working. It was truly chaotic and felt stressful. It felt the exact opposite of how a cruise should feel, and it did not feel like the warm welcome I would expect.

The shows were amazing! Burn the Floor completely amazed us. The dancers have some amazing talent. Just incredible! The actors in Rock of Ages were amazing as well. Norwegian hit two home runs with these shows. Dizzy, the magician, was unbelievable. It took a little bit to grasp his humor, but once you start to follow, he amazes again and again and again! We bought tickets to the show in Spiegel Tent, and it was incredible. The performers were amazing!

It's little, but it works. We only mainly stayed in our room to sleep. There were four beds. Two of them pulled down to make bunk beds that each held an adult up to 300 lbs. John did an amazing job of keeping it clean and tidy for us.

Ship tip

Go to see the special show with dinner, Cirque Dreams & Dinner Jungle Fantasy, in the Spiegel Tent. Don't buy the VIP tickets and arrive early. Seating after VIP, is first come, first serve. If you arrive early, you will still get great seats.
