Review Summary

Awesome Ship and great cruise.  Very similar to the Getaway but a little bigger.  Only negative was the congested elevators.  Almost always had to wait and many times they are full.  There is only 2 banks of 8 elevators each.  Felt bad for people in scooters or wheel chairs.  This was our 11th cruise and second in a row on NCL.  We really like the freestyle concept and have a deposit down on a third.  We have been to St. Thomas and Nassau before, but Tortola was new.  Not much at this new port unless you are doing an excursion.  We weren't planning a cruise but came across a $379 deal for an inside room and couldn't turn down such an awesome deal on a ship that was only 5 weeks old!  The shows were really good, especially the Million Dollar Quartet.  80's themed Dinner show was good too, but dinner was crummy, especially if you don't like seafood.  The Spice H2O area in the back of the ship was really cool and night time music, but the DJ was annoying!    Food was awesome in specialty restaurants and main dining as well.  Crew was all very friendly!   Next time we take the kids!!!
