Review summary

If you love to cruise like I do, you’ll enjoy any cruise you take. I just wish more people would control their children and follow the adult only rules.

Embarkation

5 out of 5
There was a medical emergency which held up the process, but once that was taken care of everything went very smooth.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
Main dining rooms and buffet provided delicious food. No complaints about any of them.

Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville

4 out of 5

Fish is super greasy, but the nachos are amazing.

Food Republic

5 out of 5

Delicious. We had dumplings, sushi, lamb, and chicken. Great value. With the specialty dining you can get two sittings and only use one specialty meal because of they way it’s set up. Unless you eat A LOT!

Cagney's Steakhouse

2 out of 5

As a steak venue, I expected a good steak. Unfortunately, the steak was dry, over cooked, and lacked seasoning.

Onboard Activities

3 out of 5
Too many people to enjoy any activity. They do too many events in the atrium and there isn’t enough room.

Mini Golf

3 out of 5

Fun and challenging

Ropes Course

1 out of 5

Too many stipulations to be able to participate. Closed toed shoes. Sleeves on your shirt. Nothing in your pockets.

Hot Tubs

1 out of 5

Too many children in the hot tubs. I was under the impression children were not allowed in hot tubs, but Norwegian does not enforce adult only guidelines. And neither to parents.

Entertainment

4 out of 5
Make sure you make your reservations or you’ll miss something. Choir of Men and the Flashback Four were great!

Escape Theater

5 out of 5

Comfortable seats with cup holders

The Supper Club

5 out of 5

Nice show and great meal.

Headliners Comedy Club

3 out of 5

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
This is a large balcony. It has 2 lounge chairs and 2 regular chairs, plus a table for each set of chairs. Not all large balconies have the 2 lounge chairs, but this one does.

Ship tip

Reserve shows and specialty dining as soon as you can, whether it’s online or as soon as you board.

Ports of call

Royal Naval Dockyard, West End, Bermuda
