Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
Most of the ships specialty restaurants were very good. The Garden buffet was just okay. The food wasn't as good as the other restaurants. Workers were right on top of asking us if we need anything to drink.

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
We used the pool and fitness center. The fitness center was great with all the equipment and weights. No matter what time I went up there I could always get on a machine. Liam was good monitoring the center

This is our 5th cruise (various cruise lines) and this was the best entertainment we have seen. All the performers were great....from the stage shows to the lounge musicians.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Our room steward, Jason, was very very good and so personable. He was a delight to be around. And he was cleaver with displays in our rooms. The wait staff, ship personnel were professional, timely and were excellent representatives for your company. The young lady who did all the internet and connecting us with internet was extremely patient, knowledgeable, and personable with us when we had any problems. When we did have concerns, she fixed them right away.

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
No problems or concerns.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Cabin was fine, however, if we cruised with NCL we will defiantly go to a larger cabin.

Ship tip

Get a bigger cabin. Make sure it is in the middle of the ship. You have to request an iron
