The itinerary is very nice, though it'd be better if the Bermuda port was Hamilton or St George's, rather than King's Wharf.
Good restaurant choices (freestyle), though I don't care for the alternative extra cost places out of principle. The restaurants that didn't cost extra included a Tex-Mex place and a very nice Italian (v good food) place that was cleverly converted from half the Garden Buffet area. Make reservations early in the cruise for best times. The main restaurant - The Venetian - is very nice, though most of the wait staff, while efficient, could be friendlier. Other free dining options are the Aqua and Inspirations, both nice.
The entertainment is one of NCL's strong points. There were two different shows almost every night. Most were well worth attending, but one comedian - Kenny Kane - was definitely NOT funny (mostly just stupid physical stuff). There were several lounges with v good live music. Good variety.
Pros: Nice Restaurant Choices; Good Ports; V Good Entertainment
Cons: Extra Cost Restaurants; Service Could be More Friendly
