Review summary

We had a great time and will cruise with NCL again. The staff are great and we particularly enjoyed the Moderno restaurant.


3 out of 5
Okay, we had to wait every step of the process, including getting the key. NCL employees were pleasant, but the process took a long time.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

Moderno restaurant and staff were fantastic. Venetian food preparation was an issue on day one, but fine at the end of the cruise.

Onboard Activities

3 out of 5
Fitness center was great, but hot tubs should not have kids in them.


4 out of 5
Some of the shows were very good (Elements). Not enough activities for 18-20 year olds.

Service and Staff

Moderno staff was great, and our room steward Machad and butler Seka were fantastic.

Ship Quality

Well maintained in most areas. Sliding glass doors opened very slowly.
