Nothing spectacular.

Nothing exceptionally good or bad happened on this cruise except for the food.  The only thing we can say about this cruise is "we've been there."  The cruise provided the means to cross Bermuda off our bucket list.


The food at the Garden Cafe can only be put in the category of "eating for survival" mode.  Dishes are usually overcooked.  There is always a line because the setup forces everybody to go through the salad line.  People are always wandering around with plates in hand looking for seats.  We hope the dining room might have better food which turned out not to be the case as one bite of the baked chicken jerky ended my husband's appetite.  It's not all bad at the Asian Garden just need to pick the right dish.


We have one more voucher for Norwegian and have made up our mind Norwegian is definitely not the favorite cruiseline we are looking for.

Embarkation and Disembarkation
Very long lines to get on and off the ship but the line does move ever so slowly.
Ship Quality
Destinations and Excursions
Must be the end of the season as some of the excursion we wanted weren't offered daily. We were forced to choose one over the other due to time constraint.
Onboard Activities
Service and Staff
Majority of the staff tries hard to be friendly and professional.
Food and Dining
Dishes tend to be overcooked and variety is lacking in the buffet due to lack of space.


If you eat at the Garden Cafe make sure to find seats first before getting your food.
