We had a wonderful time. The ship was a bit crowded but it was Spring Break time. Staff managed the masses well. I love NCL Freestyle Cruising so I can manage my schedule myself. The food was excellent, entertainment good.

Cabin was large enough for our needs, the balcony was awesome for quiet time. Bathroom was fairly roomy. Plenty of storage for 2 people.

Took a bus to Mayan ruin and boat ride down the river. It was fun, staff was very knowledgeable and entertaining.

Harvest Caye, Belize

5 out of 5
Got a private cabana. It was very quiet, luxurious but unnecessary. There are plenty of chairs poolside. Wait staff was not very attentive. We got what we needed but would have ordered more drinks had she come around more often.

Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico

5 out of 5
Did a Salsa class which was fun. The merchants in the shopping area were irritating. I believe I was asked if I wanted a massage 15 thousand times.


5 out of 5
It was well organized. There were a lot of people to get off the ship. We used the Bag Program. Our bags were picked up at Midnight and we didn’t see them again until we got to Cleveland. It was very convenient.
