Review summary

This was the best cruise we've ever been on. The food was delicious, there was always lots of variety, the nightly dancing and singing shows were spectacular, there was always something to do on the cruise with the event schedule, the staff who work on the cruise from the the entertainment workers to the restaurant waiters/waitresses and the rest of the Norwegian staff on board made our family experience as amazing as it can be. This was our best cruise we've ever been on and my family and I enjoyed every moment. We've been to cruises with Royal Caribbean and Carnival but those don't match up to Norwegian. Based on our experience Norwegian had much better entertainment at night. The dancers and singers were amazing, the restaurant staff worked quickly and if you tell them you need to get to a show for a specific time then they'll work faster for you to get you to that show on time. You never go hungry because there is always either a restaurant or a buffet open somewhere on the cruise and the food is always delicious. Our kids are very picky eaters and no matter where they went to eat on the cruise they always very satisfied with the selections.

Ship tip

If you want to go to a non-buffet restaurant for dinner, make a reservation or you'll be waiting in line a few minutes. But the lines usually move fast so it's not too long of a waiting period.
