Review summary

Overall we had a great time! This was our 4th Norwegian cruise and our 17th overall. We have been on big ships with other cruise lines that we enjoyed much better, like Oasis of the Seas. I think we will stay with the smaller ships when we cruise Norwegian in the future!!

Embarkation

Absolutely terrible! 17 cruises this was by far the worst!

Ship Quality

Ship was great! I thought it was clean and our cabin guy (Kurt) did a great job!

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Cabin was nice size and clean. Only issue would be not enough TV stations or movies. They did have movies you could rent for $9.99 but other cruise lines offer 3 different movies per day in the room.

Ship tip

Sheehan's was awesome!!

Ports of call

Coxen Hole, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras

Harvest Caye, Belize

2 out of 5
Trying to tender 5000 people on and off the ship was a nightmare!! Worst part of the whole cruise except for embarkation and debarkation. Beach was nice but food and drink was $$$$

Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico

4 out of 5
Easy getting on and off. We did do Mayans Ruins excursion, which was good!!

Cozumel, Mexico

4 out of 5
It had been awhile since we been to Cozumel and we really enjoyed it. A lot more new shops and a lot cleaner than our last visit.

Disembarkation

1 out of 5
Terrible! We didn't get off the ship until 11 am.
