Review summary

The first 4 days were good. The last 3 were hell. Ship is over crowded. We were out in the wind storm which is not Norwegians fault but the lack of communication while the ship is getting tossed around was terrible. We didn’t know if we were on a cruise ship or a fishing vessel. There was water coming in through the deck doors. We were unable to go on deck for the last 3 days and that is when you realize that the ship has too many people. Buffet lines were long and good luck finding a table. If you’re considering this ship don’t. Book a different one.

Ports of call

New York, New York

New York is an awesome city. We’ve been here before. Leaving on the Hudson was great.

Port Canaveral, Florida

4 out of 5
Port was good. Some nice views from the ship’s deck.

Nassau, Bahamas

Nassau was nice. I would recommend going to Atlantis to check it out.

Great Stirrup Cay (Cruise Line Private Island), Bahamas

1 out of 5
It would have been nice to see but we were unable to get off the ship.

Disembarkation was horrible. After spending 21/2 days in the ship and not being able to go on deck we are now stuck in line for 3hrs. The line had to stop because of ice build up on the walkway. You would think by now that issue would be solved.
