Everything was wonderful. Wish the buffet or free restaurants offered lobster tails at least one night. The staff was outstanding and fun. Be careful if you head to one of the beaches on your own taxi, when the rain comes (it's an island expect showers, usually don't last long) you may wait along time for taxi home if you didn't book through the ship.

52 hours on shore in Bermuda out of 7 full days??? Do the math. Tremendous rip-off for thugs price. It's so much centered on money for ever single normally inexpensive or free situation. Add on the aftershock of $200 more in gratuities at the end of cruise and you're all set with Norwegian

The service throughout the cruise was excellent. The dining package was excellent as well as room service. Our major issue was the very late night drinking and extremely loud noise on the 7th deck until 3 am on the last day of the cruise. There should be some sort of monitoring to stop this juvenile behavior on the part of young rowdy over drinking adults. Many people were talking about in at breakfast the last morning before departing.  We were in room 8656 and the loud noise for several hours came from the 7th level deck. We didn't find out until the morning when other guests informed us where the loud noise was coming from.

This was a special anniversary for us. I advised our travel agent. Yet, Nothing. Later, I was told NCL celebrates with cake. We don't eat cake and like the idea of a complimentary photo. We never felt special.

I like the smaller ships for you don't get overwhelmed as with the bigger vessels. It's a more personal and relaxing atmosphere.

Staterooms were too small and cramped, but overall it was comfortable. Free room service for breakfast was a great option.
