Review summary

Not impressed with this cruise compared to other NCL cruises I have taken. Specialty restaurants sold out when we boarded ship causing us to miss 1 per paid meal. Entertainment was rescheduled after being pre booked. Poorly done.

Pleasant but didn't have the personal touch.

Ship Quality

2 out of 5
Design of ship is poor. 1 pool for 4000 guests and all action is confined to center of ship causing large crowds.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Cabin was excellent and very large bathroom with double sink. Cabin was fantastic.

By the Time we got to island. Only had an hour and a half to explore after making tender reservations. Waited in theater for 2 hours to get on tender boat. Very poorly done by NCL.


5 out of 5
Long lines and they had to suspend disembarking due to congestion in terminal. Poorly executed by NCL
