Review summary

A great cruise on a beautiful ship. Every staff member I encountered was very nice. Everything was clean, the food was amazing, the room was the nicest I have been in. The private island was very fun. Good food there as well, and again, the staff was amazing. This was my first Norwegian cruise but I don't think it will be my last.
