Review Summary

We enjoyed the first 3 days the cruise being sea days. Allowed us to distress! The weather was not as sunny as we would like, but you cannot control everything. The package we got which included drink package, 3 specialty dining and free gratuities is hard for anyone cruise lines to match. Because of that we will cruise Norwegian again.

got to terminal early, wait time minimal, smart of them to have available specialty restaurant dining times available to reserve while waiting.

Ship Experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
Everything above average, Cagney's was are favorite specialty restaurant, followed by Italian, Mexican and then Teppenaki ( food too salty). Buffets are what you expect, plenty of selections all tasted good.

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
an older ship, so no craziness like rock climbing, or ice skating, but plenty to keep you busy if you want to be.

We like the smaller ships, easy to find everything, and no need to make reservations for everything.
