The NCL staff is always amazing. Our Cruise Director Mandy is such a beautiful, fun, attentive person. She and her staff are the best. From our room steward, Angel, to the bar staff (especially Curly!!!) we were never left wanting. I love cruising with NCL!

Stopped by before dinner every night.

Garden Cafe

Very busy at times, Plan on staking out a table before you go up for food. Food itself is good, with a nice selection.

District Brew House

Our favorite nightspot. Great choice of beers, and signature cocktails. Manny the Piano Man was fun and engaging, and the bar staff is excellent. A special mention to Vincent, aka Curly. He is the absolute best.

Atrium Bar

Hot Tubs

Only went in once, it got very crowded with one group in particular getting in and staying in the whole afternoon. I'd rather sit by the pool.

Escape Casino

It can be come very smoky here, but otherwise is a lot larger with more options than other ships.

Spice H20

The grotto is really nice, although we didn't use it. It is a quiet area for adults during the day, with deck chairs laid out on the dance floor. Children are allowed if there are parties or special events though.

Escape Theater

4 out of 5

Comfortable and clean. The shows were very good, Brat Pack was excellent.

I live near here, so it isn't a big deal to us.

Royal Naval Dockyard, West End, Bermuda

The Dockyard shops are great, love the Frog and Onion, definitely worth it!
