Review Summary

While we were happy with overall food service, we did take the NCL bonus offers of unlimited drinks and specialty restaurants. The bartenders, specialty restaurants and entertainment were all very good. The band "sold out", was excellent.

We did the best of Portland/Kennebunkport. Not happy with it. Long, boring bus ride. Drive by of Bush Compound and stop at town setup for tourists.

Walk over to the info booth on the dock and ask where to pickup the Viking trolley to the Breakers. Reasonable price and time.
