A very relaxing cruise

Sail Date: March 01, 2007

Reviewed: 9 years ago

Room Type: Oceanview

The ship is a little older but not at all outdated. All the public areas were very nice and the staterooms were nicely appoined and roomy (with excellent storage for clothes!).

Pros: freestyle dining

Cons: service

Recommends Norwegian Dream (RETIRED)? Yes!

Food and Dining
The food was average, but there wasn't a restaurant that was open at all times (with buffet food or snacks). The coffee was consistently bad.
Service and Staff
Room steward and wait staff service could use improvement. This might be one downside to the freestyle / tipping arrangements on NCL.
Ship Quality
Nicely decorated and very clean. Handicap/elderly accessibility might be an issue. The doors going to the outside decks were heavy and hard to open. I found myself opening doors for many elderly passengers.
Cabin / Stateroom
Roomy with lots of storage -- extra shelves in the closets made unpacking easy!
Cozumel, Mexico
You should try to get to a beach -- the beaches are beautiful and the snorkeling is very good. Plenty of shopping -- best deals are a little off the main street.
Don't Miss: beaches
Progreso (Merida), Mexico
The beach is public and lots of fun. Shopping is very affordable.
Belize City, Belize
An excellent place to snorkel. You need go to an island via boat for beaches and snorkeling. There are no natural beaches on the mainland.
Don't Miss: Go to an island for a true beach and snorkel experience!
