Review summary

A day and a half at sea coming and going gave a lot of time to enjoy shipboard activities. I think the cruise was very good (my first on NCL) and my 7th overall. It was a little expensive but a reasonable value for a cruise.

The process and lines in New York were slow and long.

OMG the food was very good. The Specialty Restaurants were fantastic, Cagney's and Le Bistro.

Cabin / Stateroom

It was a little tight to call it a mini-suite. Great location - mid-ship, smooth ride. Similar to a balcony on a Celebrity cruise.

Ship tip

So much to do and so little time -- plan ahead as soon as you get the paper on board.

Ports of call

New York, New York

Slow processing with the old system, but they promised they were replacing the old system and I would work better. Otherwise, NYC is always fun.

Royal Naval Dockyard, West End, Bermuda

Smooth and efficient. Worth the visit even with the marginal weather.


5 out of 5
Well organized and better than embarkation
