Review summary

Great time with our family! Splash Academy fantastic. Staff was great and ship was beautiful. Piano player in District Brewhouse was great! So funny! Due to the high volume of people, a lot of congested areas at times and very limited seating at the buffet.

Embarkation

4 out of 5
Even though we were delayed, NCL was organized and despite the waiting it wasn't bad at all.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
This is my 3rd time on NCL cruises and I felt that there was less of a selection of food, especially in the buffet. It was terrible trying to find bananas at breakfast and the selection was limited. The portions also seem to have gotten smaller as well. Otherwise the food tastes good. You want strong drinks...go to O'Sheehan's.

Entertainment

The musicians were fairly good. Disappointing at the lack of music by the pool during the day. The best was Justin, the piano player in The District Brewhouse! Fantastic!! We did not attend the big shows during to the times and having young kids.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Staff is great! Bartenders at the pool were fantastic! Made virgin mudslides for our kids and made characters out of chocolate syrup for them! Our housekeeper was fantastic also!!

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
The ship was very clean!! No complaints there! The ship itself...the casino is open to the other floors and it reeks of smoke throughout 3 floors. And it's right in the middle so at times I had to walk through with my kids because of where we were at the time. The casino needs to be closed off! Also, the layout of the ship is very spread out. I feel like it was definitely too big and we didn't see absolutely everything.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Our room had 2 rooms and a bathroom with a double sink and tub. Very spacious and plenty of storage!

Ship tip

If you don't like crowds and waiting this may not be the ship for you!

Disembarkation

5 out of 5
Very quick and very organized. We got off sooner than we thought!
