Review summary

This was our first Norwegian Cruise and we liked it a lot. Somethings we were not aware of were the need to book shows and the fact some are sold out even before we could book them prior to sailing. The freestyle dining was nice. The pool deck on this ship was really small but we found the H20 Spice deck and that was great, adult section with hot tubs and waterfall. The shows were amazing.

We did not know you had to book the shows until we got onboard, which meant not ideal show times.
