Review summary

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

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!

Ship tip

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