Other than the very limited smoking areas and the "smoking room" on deck 8 that is a total atrocity this was a great cruise. Please keep in mind that the forward elevator is near midship and you will have a 300 foot walk to the very front cabins. If you have mobility issues keep this in mind. Food in the dining rooms was satisfactory and the upscale dining restaurants were fantastic. Entire crew was fantastic.

Cabin / Stateroom View was fantastic, clean, long walk to elevator (100 yards)

Check out Brewers Bay for a good beach. They rent clear canoes there. Bar and food is available. I would highly suggest bringing your own snorkeling equipment. Cab ride was under $10 per person.
Nassau, Bahamas


Grab one of the dining package on the first day of the cruise. Teppanyaki was was fantastic. Gluten free desert options and sauces were limited at best. Norwegian could learn to use corn starch as a thickening agent in sauces.
