Review summary

This was our first cruise, we LOVED it! We look forward to booking next year with Norwegian.  We enjoyed the variety of activities and shows available, we were unable to see and do everything we wanted due to the vast amount of entertainment on board.  We have a seven year old daughter who we spend every waking minute with, she discovered the "Splash Academy" and spent every moment she could there? My husband and I have not had that much free time together in seven years! "Billy" at "Splash Academy" was incredible! My daughter still asks for her! Our Stewardess was Judy Reyes, who truly made our trip incredible! she was so personable and immediately took to Maddy, and our family, she did everything from the moment we arrived to make us feel at home.  After many years of family vacations at Disney and Universal Resorts, we have unanimously decided our future vacations are cruise's.  We loved the food, entertainment (Billy), pool side entertainment and the Nickelodeon options for the kids.  This was truly a vacation for both us and our baby girl, she met so many friends onboard that each day.  The ship was spacious enough to never feel crowded, we cannot wait to book our next trip with NCL and hopefully reunite with the crew that made our first trip so memorable!
