Review summary

Fun time. Staff not as friendly as on other NCL ships. I was disappointed with most of them. Food actually not good. I’ve cruises many times and was always impressed with the food. I was not at all. Definitely my least favorite cruise however, I will sail NCL again but on the Breakaway again. Didn’t feel like a five star vacation but I was always sailing with a large group, mainly children, and they loved every second!

Ship tip

If you’ve cruised NCL before, don’t expect it to be like the other ships. It’s their training ship apparently.
