If you thinking about NCL for the first time, give them a try. The are amazing. Something a bit new. This freestyle cruising wont be for all but is great for most. you eat anywhere anytime. No assinged seats, very weasy resevation system. Will no doubt travel FREESTYLE.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
I had absolutly no issues with food quality or quantity. Truely perfect. The Cagneys Steakhouse was nice, but save 5 bucks and get one of their regular meals. Nothing amazing about the Surf & Turf OR Porterhouse. Just GOOD. Not high end Good, but Good.... Every other place to eat went out of their way to make you happy with your choice.

Beatiful place. Makes sure to explore other areas besides where Ship is DOCKED.
Don't Miss: Cameo making. Walk is maybe 5 or 10 minuts from boat. Or take cab to West BAY, not WEST BEACH. Stop at Cameo on the way. Fery fine work at very good prices.

Use this stop for an excursion. SDont miss DUNE BUGGIES.. Jeeps are fun also, but alittle something extra with the DUNE BUGGIES. Toured the entire island. Snorkeled, had a cook out. Great teams that works this EXCURSION .
Don't Miss: the entire island.

SKIP it .. stay on bouard this day and have the ship/pool to your self. Really.
Don't Miss: The dont miss thing about Jamaica was we should have stayed on the BOAT.. Missed the Boat on that one...

Pros: Freestyle, ports, and great ship

Cons: each port stop was to SHORT. Tendering to exotic places can be SLOW. FREESTYLE adds up and at the end it looks alot like FEESTYLE.. Can get pricy. There is a charge for everything. Not to far off the other lines.
