5 Night Western Caribbean (Miami Roundtrip)
Sail Date: March 20, 2011
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Couple

This cruise was very much a laid back cruise. Even with a couple dozen spring breakers it was still an older crowd with the main entertainment being sunbathing with a drink. The cruise director Matt Baker maid a ok cruise very good. The food was over processed and mediocre at all the free dining areas. Overall the staff was very courteous minus a single waiter we had our first night. The shows we ok with the Second City crew carrying a ok comedian and magician and a bad acrobatic/dance review. This is a great cruise for the older crowd but if your looking for exciting night life look somewhere else.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
The freestyle dinning with no set time to eat is very nice as well as the on deck grill so you don't need to get out of your bathing suit to eat lunch. The quality of food was not great. The crew managed to mess up very basic foods like buffalo wings and eggs.

Entertainment

Matt Baker the cruise director was awesome. If we cruise again with NCL we will cruise on his ship. The shows we ok with the Second City crew carrying a ok comedian and magician and a bad acrobatic/dance review. This is a great cruise for the older crowd but if your looking for exciting night life look somewhere else.

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
Overall the staff was very courteous minus a single waiter we had our first night. The cleaning staff was fantastic and the waiting staff was just good.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
The ship was always clean and the decor was nice. Nothing jumped out at you as very cool or being outdated.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
We had a blocked view room. The room was small as expected but the decor and furniture quality was good.

Pros: Best Cruise Director Ever

Cons: Mediocre Food
