Review Summary

Let me start with my only negative "constructive" comment.  The Internet is BAD.  Do not take free internet if offered as part of a choice of amenities.  Take any other choice.


OK - Food is best of BIG ships.  Go to the Food Republic - simply outstanding.  Far better than a similar concept on Celebrity ships called "Qzine".  Food in the "included" restaurants is very good for this class and size of ship.  Public spaces are great - brand new ship and water slides are amazing.  Norwegian continues with theme of having both inside and outside seating in their specialty restaurants.  And - if you can afford to stay in "The Haven" - GO FOR IT" - best suite service for big ships.

Excellent 2 bedroom suite. 2nd bedroom is designed for children (2 children) with it's own full bathroom. Limited drawer space in 2nd bedroom. Master Bathroom is AMAZING with shower and tub (separate) overlooking the sea. Two sinks in Master Bath. Master Bedroom has plenty of drawer and closet space. Living Room with dining area is very nice. Balcony is not big - but big enough for two chairs and coffee table.

Internet is terrible on the ship. A local police officer recommended "The Watering Hole" - yes, its a bar, but they serve breakfast, lunch and dinner. Owned by a British woman. Very nice atmosphere, GREAT internet service and the food was better than expected.
