Review summaryIt was an excellent boat with excellent staff! We will definitely consider cruising Norwegian again. Food left a little to be desired. Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our trip!
Food and Dining
We had high hopes for Cagney's, but it didn't really deliver. They were VERY busy that night and our waiter was great. We felt the kitchen was pretty backed up. All three steaks that were ordered came out overcooked. A friend with us ordered the lamb shank. It came out overcooked the first time. She sent it back and the second time around it came out PERFECT and the bite I had was AMAZING. The desserts were mediocre. Definitely potential here, but we didn't have a great experience.
Phenomenal service from start to finish. We utilized this reservation on our Dining Plan and so glad we did. Our serving team was swift, but not overbearing. We had both soups, the beef carpaccio and the ceviche to start. All were amazing! The wagyu sirloin was the highlight of the meal. their desserts were phenomenal and we enjoyed having latin wine paired with our meal. Overall, an excellent experience!
Delicious food and drink! We thoroughly enjoyed the shrimp dish. We were sat "outside" in the Atrium dining area. Smoke from the casino was drifting down to where we were seated and it left a lot to be desired for the experience. Would have offered 5 stars except for this.
District Brew House
Awesome selection and generally had some good entertainment each night. We were a group of beer snobs so it was fun to be able to drink some familiar craft beers on our trip!
Tobacco Road Liquor Bar
Best martinis on the boat and we tried them all. Loved this "nook" bar!
Great hot-stone massages! One small suggestion would be to have more comfortable surface/cover for the massage table's face area. When I was on my stomach, I found the cushion/towel on my face to be quite uncomfortable. Also, had access to the Thermal Spa the entire trip. We utilized it everyday. The Steam Room, Snow Room and warm stone loungers were some of our favorites!
Headliners Comedy Club
Frank Townsend (spelling?) was our favorite. He's best at the late show!
Service and Staff
Cabin / Stateroom
I'd stay mid-ship. You'll have easy access to your rooms from the stairs/elevators and quick steps to most of the pools/restaurants. Try to upgrade to spa-level if you can!
