Review SummaryThe crew is wonderful. The ship is a very beautiful ship. They are always cleaning up. Even with all of the cleaning I found my cabin full of previously placed finger prints all over doors wall etc. kind of yecky.
It was clean but not what I would call sanitized. It also seems like the ship nickel and dimes you to death hawking their wears. That gets a little annoying. They also boast great giveaways at contests and most are simply beach balls or keychains wit NCL logo. They could afford to be more generous. Bermuda is a beautiful island but closes down too darn fast .Not much in the way of shopping except those souvenier shops with items all made in china or mexico. China and imported name brands are there but no great bargains that I saw.
Food and Dining
All in all I ate like I was going to the chair and needed my last meal.
I wouldn't bother going to specialty restaurants I felt their cover charge excessive when it is basically the same food as in the free restaurants.
I like freestyle dining . I don't like how some folks think that means come in your towel ,bathing suit, shorts and flip flops. You should dress properly for dining I feel . Not the ships fault except for not eforcing their policy too much , it is basically the fault of the cruisers.
Service and Staff
Cabin / Stateroom
Size of balcony room was ok !
Ports of Call
Don't Miss: Don't miss the aquarium /zoo it is very pretty (small) but in a growing process.
Don't Miss: nothing to miss not much there .
Pros: I love the idea of cruising in general, the entertainment the casino, the balcony room !
Cons: It took 2 3/4 days to get to Bermuda which is 1 day 1/2 days away . Much quicker return also didn't care for tendering to shore
