Amazing ship! Awesome crew! Incredible food! EPIC vacation!

Embarkation

Considering the circumstances... NCL did a great job! Testing was off site and a little confusing at first, but we got through it. Once at pier it only took about 45 minutes to get onboard!

I apologize 😄 wife took MOST of the pics so look for her review "Schaudee" But we thought the "weird" wavy design was cool... Most did not! One word STORAGE! Lots of STORAGE!

Ship tip

Take advantage of as much of this great ship as you can! There is a lot to offer here... Anything you didn't get to see or do is just another reason to rebook this ship!

Ports of call

Oranjestad, Aruba

I'm not a huge fan of SJ but there is great history to see here and if you have a chance head to the rainforest for a few hours!
