Review summary

This is a cruise I'd do again in a heartbeat, and just may in 2020. I met sooo many great people before AND during my cruise. Lifelong friends have been made.

Could've been better, not NCL's fault. Ship had to clear customs inspection. I hear it happens often in N.Y.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
Main dinning room, the Manhattan room was phenomenal. Food was delish, service a tad slow, but it was a full dinning room.

5 O'Clock Somewhere Bar

5 out of 5

Outside bar here was 2nd best behind Spice H2O, still a 5 ☆ venue. Service was excellent, and they had great senses of humor.

Atrium Bar

Packed, especially during Atrium activities.

O'Sheehan's Bar and Grill

Love this venue...get the wings!!! However, order your next 2 drinks while you still have 1 drink left...bar service is tad bit slow.

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
Pool was decent, a little small. Atrium activities were always fun, even to just watch.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
I have no complaints about any staff members on this ship. Everyone was courteous, and helpful.

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
Was used to the design layout since I've been on other same class NCL ships.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Studio cabin was perfect size for 1 person. Probably could fit 2 in there if you like being cozy. Could use a bit more storage space for clothes. Closets were nice, but some drawers would be nice too. NEED a mini-bar in them though.

Ship tip

TIP: Enjoy yourself, last day onboard pack throughout the day, NOT all at one shot. Get up early on disembarkation day, get off ship early.

Ports of call

Royal Naval Dockyard, West End, Bermuda

Very scenic, easy to get around...visit Calico Jack's!

Self disembarkation was great, I was off and in my car driving home within 40 minutes of getting on line.
