Review summary

The layout on the ship was such that you had to walk through restaurants and smoky areas to get from one side to the other. That was the only real downside.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
We are in main dining and restaurants, which were all very good. We did not go to the Buffett at all. Room service breakfast had few choices.

Onboard Activities

We spent time in the spa, which was very small but nice. We enjoyed the whiskey tasting.

Shows were limited but good. We enjoyed the musical entertainment in the Atrium each night.

Service and Staff

Service was excellent as always with NCL. We are good tippers and that does make a difference.

Ship Quality

Taxi driver strike caused all excursions to be cancelled, which was disappointing. As a result the port was super crowded and the sales people were quite pushy.

Harvest Caye, Belize

We went on a fishing excursion which was fun. We spent some time at the resort by the pool, which was nice.

Coxen Hole, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras

Took Jolly Roger Catamaran snorkeling excursion which was excellent. Port was good, plenty of local shopping.

Cozumel, Mexico

4 out of 5
Large port area was nice. Our excursion was cancelled due to wind so we didn’t get much further than the port.

Fast and easy with Priority Access
