Review summary

Would never do it again with NCL. We cruise at least once a year and I think we'll stick with RCL for all future cruises.

Long and tedious. The endless ramps, twists and turns are unbearable.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

2 out of 5
Food in the main dining rooms was poor to say the least. The tiramisu was the absolute worst that I've ever had. Thank God for the specialty restaurants that made the whole dining experience tolerable.

Onboard Activities

Howl at the Moon was definitely the BEST! It even drew in entertainers from the other onboard shows.

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
Our room steward (Mark) was the best. He was extremely attentive and did a great job. Two things I totally disliked about the staff were: 1) They do not have a good grip on the English language and 2) I don't ever want to hear the words "washy-washy" again. It is the most childish thing I've ever run into on a cruise ship.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
The ship was great!

Cabin / Stateroom

2 out of 5
It was like living in a closet for a week. Our friends also had an inside cabin but it felt 50% larger than our cabin. Also, for the first three days we had constant problems with the cabin TV.

Ports of call

Miami, Florida

2 out of 5
It's Miami, what can I say. I'm a Florida resident and I hate going to Miami. Next cruise will be from Ft. Lauderdale or West Palm Beach.

San Juan, Puerto Rico

5 out of 5
We really enjoyed it. The history, culture and architecture are wonderful.

Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas Did not visit port

That was a stop that the ship never made it to.

Tortola, British Virgin Islands

5 out of 5
It is magnificent. A beautiful place to visit!

Nassau, Bahamas Did not visit port

This was another port that was not made by the ship.
