Review summary

It was a very pleasant sailing our cabin wasn't what we expected and were very disappointed by it. After speaking with travel agent and registering our valid complaints with the customer relations desk we were upgraded to a min isuite which made the trip absolutely more enjoyable. 

We went to NCL's private island but was disappointed that their lagoon was close to tourist,but had a great time at their Bacardi beach instead. Weather was perfect,water was turquoise and calm.

Once in Nassau we took the excursion to BLue Lagoon Island ,,,that is the absolute best place to take kids to, t is a restful beautiful island only wish we were able to stay there longer !

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
cabin was upgraded to mini suite 11590 absolutely beautiful and spacious,,the cabin on the 8th floor horrible small balcony is obstructed and smaller then most due to boat structure and a small ledge is along the bottom of the balcony making it easy for a small unattended child to step up and fall over very scary that is why we changed...wanted to enjoy our trip not worry every five minutes about loosing a child .
