- Very good food as expected. Many choice "pay for " restaurants at a fair price.

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

-Lounge acts were superb also.

-Ship was clean; cabin was fine.


-Population was crowded with too many children...(family cruise)

-Forget about getting a seat or lounge chair pool side!!!!

-Not enough seafood of quality on this ''searide''.

-Bahama people could use business & courtesy training classes, really.

Cabin / Stateroom
Well designed as a large Queen-sized berth.


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!
