Excellent ship! Love the sea days and the ports.  This ship packs a big punch with almost too much to do.  reserve shore excursions, Vibe Beach Club, and premium restaurants early.  Try and do it all but try and relax a little too... its a vacation! Drink package is well worth it and the premium restaurants are a must.  main dining rooms are aesthetically beautiful but food is fair.  The Garden Café (buffet) is outstanding and the premium restaurants are out of this world! Slides and ropes course are great but maybe save the ropes course for a port day, (less lines and wind).  A must do trip, already booked another!

Ron Ron and Clarense at 5o'clock somewhere are awesome as is Rodolfo in Margaritaville and Skyline Bar. Our cabin attendant Emmanuel was the best!
Food and Dining
main dining is fair, the rest is great!


NCL is a great line, but does not have as many inclusions as other lines. No spa day passes, must buy expensive weekly pass for spa. but thay have something for everyone and allow you to customize your experience based on interest and budget. Not a complaint, just and FYI if you are new to NCL.
