Review summary

Overall we had a good time. This cruise was about us getting together with family. It would not have been our choice but it was put together by our daugter so we went for them.

NCL computer system was down. It was total disaster! They could not board anyone. Many did not get onboard until well after 4 pm.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
The menus in the main dining rooms were not great but food was fine and the service was good. The best specialty restaurants Cagneys was by far the best. We ate at Moderno and Ocean Blue and were not impressed. The buffet was quite good and the staff did a good job .

Onboard Activities

3 out of 5
This ship holds over 4000 passengers and has one pool. That is insane. You could never get close to it.

Service and Staff

Every one we had contact with did a nice job.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
The ship is very clean. The ship layout is poor, it only has 2 banks of elevators. The casino is open to the decks above and the smoke is terrible.

Cabin / Stateroom

2 out of 5
The cabin is very small but that was not the issue. Every night the crew needs to access a room that is partly above it. They tend to make noise. We were able to move to another cabin 13433 which was nice and quiet. Both cabins were kept clean .

Ports of call

San Juan, Puerto Rico Did not visit port

We did not dock until 4 pm and left at midnight. Kind of a waste of time to try to do anything .

Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas

We have been there before. We went to Coral World and Coki beach, that was nice.

Tortola, British Virgin Islands

3 out of 5
We took a taxi tour. Our driver was not very informative and the whole tour was not great.

Nassau, Bahamas

4 out of 5
We went to the Hilton for the day it was very quiet and relaxing. There is a nice beach and a good lunch. You can walk to it from ship.


4 out of 5
Disembarkation went quite well considering the amount of passengers.
