Good Experience for a 1st time Norwegian Cruiser

Sail Date: December 07, 2014

Reviewed: 2 years ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Balcony

Being that this cruise was my first Norwegian Cruise, I can say that it was a good experience. The Vessel and state rooms were immaculate and beautiful. The Cruise crew were phenomenal and very pleasant.  The destinations were amazing. I would recommend this cruise to an age demographic of 55 and older. As a cruiser in the 28-42 age range the activities on board this trip was more dedicated to a much more seasoned crowd. Also the food options outside the specialty restaurants was not the greatest. Advice to persons considering this cruise prepay all gratuities, maximize your time at the stops, and be prepared to REST AND RELAX. 

Ship Quality
Food and Dining
Options were limited for types of meat i.e. pork over turkey. Late night food options were often served cold.
Service and Staff
Elements was GREAT- The magician portion could have been left out.
Children's Programs
Onboard Activities
Seemed more dedicated to an senior aged crowd. Not the type for singles and 28-42 vibrant groups.
Destinations and Excursions
Cabin / Stateroom
Simply IMMACULATE!! Stateroom attendant was phenomenal.
New Orleans, Louisiana
Burbon Street Great Eats!
Cozumel, Mexico
Belize City, Belize

Longer time here would definitely enhance this trip.
