The stops in Canada were just ok. It wasn't fall yet so there were no fabulous colors to see. Saint Johns was just ok and I had visited Portland and Newport before on my own. Gift shops and sidewalk cafes. What else can I say ?
The ship and the crew were just great. Everyone there made it their goal to make sure everyone had a good time. Norwegian has free style dining so sometimes it looks crowded right after a show had let out but the line move quickly. There are always available tables in both main dining halls. Always.
We wandered around the ship most of the time in that there was always some type of entertainment going on. The stage shows were all 1st rate. No complaints.
The room was spotless and I was always seeing crew members cleaning everything on the ship. The word that comes to mind is ship shape.
The duty free shop was actually reasonable priced. Nothing at all like the airport duty free shops.

My travel companion was a smoker so they had a place to smoke their cigarettes. If they didn't have that option, they wouldn't have gone.
The ship met all my needs. The dining and entertainment was all that I desired .
