- Great NCL staff!...Fantastic Broadway theatre, sets, and actors.

-Lounge acts were superb also.

-Ship was clean; cabin was fine.

Well designed as a large Queen-sized berth.

Ship Tip

For "serenity" go to 3rd deck above pool-great shower to refresh.
Get to evening shows EARLY...lateness is extremely disruptive.
You won't gain weight if you use the stairs & stay active walking NASSAU (and visit their great national art museum )
If you gamble & booze it up, bring mucho bucks!

Long lines, really.
