So Day 5 has gone very well. Took a Fabulous your of St John. At my fav bar, the Atrium. Had two fabulous Specialty Dinners, @Maduro's and Le Bistro. I'm sure it was Great but Cotton Club after Midnight put me to sleep. 20 minutes in I left. Long Day

Review summary

Today day 6 is going great. Major score at Casino while having morning coffee. Le Bistro was its usual spectacular self. Second major Casino Score this evening. This cruise was a fav 5 for sure. I enjoyed the size as smaller NCL ships are limited in options Though large many intimate locations. Popcorn given out during movies. Royal Caribbean, charged for popcorn. Moscow Mules are top notch.topped w Ginger Candy. Cruise Director very very good. Have done New England Cruise 8 times and will book it again for sure. Next yr I believe it will be the Bliss.

Cafeteria crowded at peak times, but lots of seating outside and weather was spectacular. Typical buffet choices and different countries represented each night

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
Shows were good. Theater is small by comparison but shows are repeated all week with reservations. Many venues for various entertainment

Expected After Midnight, Cotton Club to be a more lively show. It was slow to start so my wife and I headed to sleep twenty minutes in.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Outstanding period. No issues anywhere. A man was room steward, and he was tops. After 25 cruises he did some outstanding stuff.

Cabin / Stateroom

Best cabin ever and this was cruise number 25. It was overlooking bow. Right under bridge. It's considered Oceanview. Three full closets, 15 or more drawers sitting room with t.v. and desk and couch, sleeping area with large screen t.v., endless counter space, seat in window. 13700. Amar was top notch room steward.

Ship tip

Be prepared to walk. Very big ship. Must visit, Tobacco Road Pub. Atrium was my favorite bar. We prefer French Bistro and Brazilian Restaurants.
