Review summary

Loved the cruise. embarkation and disembarkation were a breeze. All of the ships employees were very friendly and helpful. We saw employees from different ships that recognized us from previous cruises with NCL. Freestyle dining is a big perk to us as we like to have the flexibility to do what we want when we want and or change our plans at any given moment. NCL will always be the only cruise line I use.

Embarkation

5 out of 5
seamless...not a long wait, the staff was efficient and friendly, got the job done quick.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
excellent food, service and a very good range of dining experiences. The only thing I would've wanted to see was the Japanese noodle bar that NCL had on the Getaway for my last cruise. There were no outside barbecues either... not needed as you have the garden cafe but would've been nice occasionally.

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
pools, rock climbing, fitness center, awesome water slides, trivia, Casino etc.... The ship is huge and there is always something to do.

Entertainment

3 out of 5
outside pool entertainment was good. The singers in the Atrium were not good. I was more entertained on the NCL Getaway in 2015 on my last cruise.

Children's Programs

5 out of 5
Entourage was a great time for my 13 year old. My 15 year old was constantly at the basketball court and very happy.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
excellent service from all ship employees.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
well thought out.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Cabin was bigger than I expected. The water pressure in the shower was the best I have had on any cruise (I've been on 6 including Royal Caribbean and NCL). Cabin design was done right on this ship. Beds were super comfortable. I did not miss having a portal or balcony one bit.

Ship tip

book excursions and shows on the ship early as they fill up fast.

Ports of call

Miami, Florida Did not visit port

Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas Did not visit port

loved having the resort (ship) practically to ourselves. Near empty pools, bars, water slides as fast as you could climb back up. Had run of the ship.

Tortola, British Virgin Islands Did not visit port

Disembarkation

5 out of 5
extremely fast and efficient. got off the ship, through customs and on the bus for our transfer to FLL airport in record time. only had 1 person in front of us in the customs line.
