There are so many wonderful things to say about our cruise to the Caribbean.  Foremost, the Norwegian and it crew.  I have cruised on 3 separate lines at this point.  Norwegian literally knocked my socks off.  The best food, the most friendly helpful staff, Dan Dan the direct so energetic/fun with one of the most beautiful singing voices I have ever encountered.  The excursions were well planned.  Each port more wonderful than the last - but the time on the ship was the MEMORABLE part of this vacation.  Thank you all for your very hard work, George and Rose

Ship Quality
Very clean and inviting
Food and Dining
Enjoyed all the varieties of food on buffet and several specialty restuarants.
Service and Staff
The most helpful/friendliest crew around - loved you Dan Dan and Dilip!!!
A wide variety -- Dan Dan has the very best voice ever.
Children's Programs did not use -- but I am sure it would be great.
Onboard Activities
Spent a lot of time just relaxing - from all we saw - there was a lot to do.
Destinations and Excursions
Each port and excursion was more beautiful than the last. Tortolla - want to move there.
Cabin / Stateroom
This was heaven on a ship. Very roomy -- the tub is so much fun to just sit and soak while watching the ocean go by. The most comfortable bed EVER!
New York, New York
never was thrilled with NY -- take time to see the 911 museum
San Juan, Puerto Rico
didn't care for this port much, but there is a little shop up main st on the left -- awesome.
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas
Definitely spend some time here, then off to St. John's island - two for the price of one!
Philipsburg, St. Maarten
LOVE the Dutch side, not too crazy over the other side (French) found them to be rude!
Tortola, British Virgin Islands
Take a land and sea tour, the very best of both worlds. Love Tortolla!


Take time to walk the ship, really enjoy the buffets. Get to the Pool buffets early-they fill up fast.
