This cruise is NOTHING like what NCL 

Entertainment was mediocre at best

2 hour dinners because it takes over 1 hour for each course to arrive, and we were rushed out of the dining room because they were rushing to get breakfast ready. we were never even offered coffee until we complained.

cafes closed all the the PM you need to go hunting for food.

the kids were bored to death!

never again

New York, New York
San Juan, Puerto Rico
take a cab to a beach and walk around san juan. better than buying an excursion
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas get a cab and go to Corki beach - take your own snorkeling and it will be the highlight of your trip
Philipsburg, St. Maarten
go to little bay in the AM and spend the afternoon watching huge planes land almost on your head! LOL a sight to be seen! but they only start arriving after 12. great place!
Tortola, British Virgin Islands
go to Virgin Gorda. AMAZING! because it was only a half day we paid the 80 bucks excursion. WORTH IT!


This is a ship geared to the elderly. blah entertainment and they close their cafes all the time. it was not a true cruising experience for my friends who were fist time cruisers.
