Review summary

Loved the places we visited but disappointed with NCL and will never cruise with them again!


1 out of 5
Delayed because of hurricane which is understandable but they delayed it longer and none of the ncl team had the same answers so instead of a time we New when to be there we sat in the terminal for at least 4 hours.

Food and Dining

Cocktails had a splash of alcohol for an outrage price. Not kidding I only drink on vacation so greatly disappointed. I would have given 1 star but two of the specialty restaurants were great.

They were nice enough but hardly anyone was happy and smiling like all our other cruises.

Only two smoking areas and they were so tiny and over crowded.
