We stayed in as suite so how incredible is that in itself! Round the clock assistance from our concierge, our butler and our room steward. Food at Cagneys was unbelievable. However, both the Italian Restaurant and French Bistro leave much to be desired. We are Italian and found the Italian food to be quite unpalatable. The French food was far too salty. The Brazilian Steakhouse, Moderna, was good, but needs to be in a room not in a common passway. However, being a veteran cruiser, we found the Garden Cafe' other wise referred to as the "Lido" to be an excellent alternative with exciting food choices, beautiful presentations and delicious.

The cruise itself was like most, with very friendly, accommodating staff. I found that the shows were limited on most nights to one show, which did not enable us to go, as we had chosen a 7 or 8 p.m. dining time. This was disappointing. On the up side, the reception from staff when coming back on ship was very nice, organized and little perks like fresh ice water, cool face clothes, and towel exchange were terrific.

All in all I would recommend this cruise, nice ports, Cozumel, Roatan, and Costa Maya. We did not get off the ship in Belize having been there before and finding it less than enticing. Norwegian did a great job, and did a great job making arrangements.
