Had zero issues. Arrived to the port around 1045 and was on the ship by 1130. NCL new terminal is great.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Dinner was great at all the restaurants. Cagney’s Steak House is always a plus!!

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
Had a great time on the ropes course, putt putt the pool and the water slides. The pool area can get crowded and has a bit of a rowdy crowd, but it is to be expected. Plenty of activities to do in the atrium, such as Deal or No Deal. Fun to just sit and have a drink and watch the shows. Check your daily schedule for events and also know that some may require an extra charge. We did the Mojito tasting and the Ice Bar

Had been in the Getaway, so the layout was very similar. Easy to get around and find what you are looking for.

Cabin / Stateroom

Our room steward Micheal was awesome! Room was always clean and ready. Had towel animals every night. Tip them a bit at the beginning and you will get great service.

Ship tip

Enjoy your time, don’t get stressed about things. Yes there are a lot of people but don’t let that bother you.

Did a wonderful food/history walking tour. Booked through shore excursions for better prices. Made our own Mojitos for dinner.

Tortola, British Virgin Islands

Was a small port, did not book an excursions because we didn’t want to feel rushed. Ask for directions to the ferry to get passport stamped and shop from locals, not the shops right at the port.

Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas

5 out of 5
Great shopping, sightseeing and beach excursions. If you are looking for a less crowded beach, go to Coki Point Beach, great snorkeling. You can rent a mask/snorkel for $5

Wait until the last color is called and take your own luggage off. We didn’t have a problem. Line was long but moved quickly if you follow instructions and have documents ready and in hand.
