Review summary

We had a very positive experience. This was our 1st cruise with NCL and we will definitely cruise again with them. We bid and got upgraded to Haven which was wonderful and made the trip even more enjoyable.

Embarkation a bit on the fussy side as a haven guest. We just wanted to get on board.

Cagney's Steakhouse

2 out of 5

I found this fairly average , all the food is over seasoned and over sugared. My least favourite onvorad and the only one I didn't enjoy. Staff were below average also we felt they were trying to rush us out of the restaurant, main course arriving as we were finishing our starters.
