The deck chairs are so close to one another that you must walk on your chair to sit down. If you're looking for activities forget about it, this ship/cruise line is mediocre. It is for 65+ or patents that want to have daycare all day.

Check out the specialty restaurants and the shows so you can make reservations prior to getting on board. Make sure you check out Spice H2O at the rear of the ship. Adults only and no charge!!!

Don't book this ship unless you like walking on your deck chair to sit down, going to pool bar for your own drinks, mediocre service in the complimentary dining rooms, and crowds. Not nearly enough open space.

Think they are more suited for adults. Children did not feel that welcome.

It's too big for it's own good. Lines, lines, lines! Be prepared to walk a ton and stand in line a lot!

The ship is still new and the staff had some work to do in order for a flawless journey. I would, however, be willing to give the ship another chance.

The ship does have things to work on but has a lot of good points.

Nice ship, but seems to working out some kinks with service and coordination.

Although the ship holds 4200 passengers we never felt crowded or ignored. All staff members were very friendly and did their best to make us feel welcomed. The food was outstanding and again never had to wait more that 10 minutes to get seated at the dining restaurants.

Excellent staff on this ship, but I highly recommend booking anything early if possible, restaurants, shows and spa, because things do get booked. This ship IS the destination, and a week is not enough time to see it all.

Its a humongous ship! If you dont want to walk a mile or more every day, book a room near the center of the ship (near the elevators)

if you want a good dinning experience in one of the complimentary dinning rooms , don't do freestyle NCL

Buy a sealed package of water bottles. Not included and they charge $3 a bottle.

We had the ultimate drink package. It was nice having that because it was easier to get drinks, you do not have to sign for the drinks.

Try out the Manhattab Room for dinner. Great service and excellent food choices.
