The Manhattan Room

5 out of 5

This was our favorite restaurant for many reasons: 1. It's free! 2. The atmosphere is so nice - inviting, yet a bit upscale 3. Service was awesome - friendly and attentive 4. Food was AMAZING! 5. Having the opportunity to listen to live bands and dance with dinner was so nice!

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
Main pool was a bit crowded on sea days - but that is to be expected. The options on board for activities were so good! Multiple water slides, putt-putt, ropes course with zipline, waterfall rock area in the adult area....everything was awesome!

Entertainment

4 out of 5
The caliber of shows onboard was the highest quality of talented. We were so impressed! That being said, I didn't care for the fact that one entertainment option offered was "For the Record: The Brat Pack" and was full of sexual content and foul language. It was poor taste compared to the rest of our experience and I was very disappointed with Norwegian's choice of entertainment with that selection. The actors and actresses were very talented in that show - but the content was very disappointing.

We got upgraded to a balcony right before the trip and it was absolutely amazing!

Ship tip

Ladies, bring a sweater for the evenings cause the air conditioning can get a bit chilly. Bring multiple swimsuits cause you live in them all cruise long! Also, if planning excursions, check out things on your own. You will save a lot of money by booking things yourself or waiting and booking with a local.

We did Dunn River Falls. Found a taxi and paid for it at the gate and saved about 50% off the cruise excursion rate!

George Town, Grand Cayman

Went to the Turtle Preserve and it was awesome. We would definitely do it again. We booked it online on our own ahead of time and saved money!
