Review summary

Overall, we had a great time and enjoyed our family vacation from beginning to end.

Embarkation

3 out of 5
The lines were long and slow but once we got to the agent things went fairly quickly.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
This was our third Norwegian cruise and the food was even better this time than on the other 2 cruises we took. Good job Norwegian!

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
We were too busy to much but the activities offered were great.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
The staff and service were both great. Whenever there was an issue, the staff was quick to respond and when necessary, rectify the situation. For us, there were no major issues but we did have a few small issues and/or changes that we required help with and we were never disappointed!

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Although the ship is huge and somewhat hard to navigate in the first few hours, I'm happy to say that once you got a feel for the layout and figured out one end from the other, it was quite easy to get around and locate what you were looking for. The ship was always clean, it was normal to see staff cleaning and straightening up at all hours of the day and night.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
We were a family of 4 and were concerned that our room would not be large enough for all of us. We soon learned that we had no reason to worry. Once we all unpacked using the ample space available and stored our suitcases under the bed, there was plenty of room for all of us. We all enjoyed the balcony as well.

Ports of call

Miami, Florida

3 out of 5
We did not have much time to experience Miami but what we did see/do was great.

Coxen Hole, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras

5 out of 5
Loved the tour we did, wish we had more time in this port. We did an island tour and beach excursion and got to see how the locals live and work.

Harvest Caye, Belize

5 out of 5
Did not do an excursion and just enjoyed the beach. It was a great beach and the local shopping was nice to look around at.

Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico

5 out of 5
Went on an excursion to see Mayan ruins. Was great to see and learn about their culture.

Cozumel, Mexico

5 out of 5
The beach and shopping were alot of fun. We did an all inclusive beach day and were pleasantly surprised by the great service and delicious food.

Disembarkation

3 out of 5
Lines were long and slow but even worse was the confusion and mismanagement of the airport transfer lines. It was so congested and out of control that we left the free transfer and got a taxi to the airport. It was a mess and there was no one there to help or monitor who got on what bus or where you needed to be.
