Review SummaryThis was our first time onboard the Norwegian cruise line.
We didn't know how it would compare with the other lineswe had sailed on. We were pleasantly surprised.
Although we did have to wait nearly two hours to board the ship,we managed to enjoy every aspect of the sailing experience.
There was always upbeat music playing by the pool.
We didn't get to try all of the restaurants onboard.
We did try the Venetian which was our favorite, the garden cafe, Sala and Aqua.
The food was great.
All in all, a good value.
Food and Dining
Service in the dining room was excellent! No complaints whatsoever!
The magic show, Eddie Holman (the singer of "Hey there Lonely Girl" was onboard and we got to meet him and have our picture taken with him. That was pretty cool.
Bollywood was another great show onboard, it was amazing!
We also got to see a movie onboard, it was quite entertaining.
They did enjoy the ones that they attended.
We sailed during Easter and they had a family easter egg hunt which was pretty fun!
Running all over the ship getting clues and eggs along the way.
At the end, we were rewarded with a cute stuffed bunny and a photo with the bunny.
That was pretty nice.
Service and Staff
The waiters especially. We were so impressed with how attentive they were.
We have nothing but wonderful things to say about all those hard working people.
Cabin / Stateroom
The rooms were always clean and well stocked with towels. We were happy with our accommodations.
Pros: Freestyle dining at the Venetian Restaurant, it was great not to have to eat at a specific time
Cons: Way too many kids onboard-it was the April school vacation week, they got a little loud at times
