Review summary

Overall, we had a very good time. Will probably not repeat this particular cruise but will cruise with Norwegian again. If we go to Bermuda again, we will probably travel by air to Bermuda and stay on the island for a week. Very safe and interesting islands.

Embarkation

A little hectic and little priority for our Latitudes Platinum standing.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
Really liked the Manhattan Dining room. As good as or better than specialty dining. A little slow or confused in Cagney's. Cucina good but a little too aggressive on friendliness. Le Bistro was good. Taste and Savor good but a little slow on service and wait staff didn't check on us frequently enough. Don't need them to hover just check to see if we need butter, water, bread or wine more often without necessarily asking.

Good location. Really liked our excursion with Rising Son Sail and Snorkle. This was a highlight of our trip. We also like our sunset Goslings Rum Swizzle cruise. A lot of fun.

Disembarkation

Generally good. Could have had better directions for getting to airport shuttle provided by Norwegian. Had to ask to find where to catch the shuttle.
