Review summary

We like cruising and recommend it. If you enjoy cruising, having a balcony is worth the price. Taking advantage of the Latitude Rewards get you great bonuses and amenities.

Norwegian Cruise Lines (NCL) has this down to a science. They are very organized, and helpful, but the Boston terminal doesn't have enough seating.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
The specialty dining is the best. We love the Bistro, and you should skip lunch if you plan to do to the Teppanyaki.... sooo much food, and so delicious. The Garden Cafe is the default dining option, but seating is very tight.

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
We enjoyed bingo, the pool, the spa... the wonderful spa, and some of the crafts.

The Swing Band was absolutely amazing. The house band was mediocre (we are a household of musicians).

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
NCL always has a great staff; friendly and helpful.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
NCL is constantly cleaning and maintaining the ship.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Normally we get a room with a balcony, but we brought a friend. The mini-suite gave us enough room, and a curtain for privacy. The balcony is a must.

Ship tip

Fine Dining is the best package.

Ports of call

Boston, Massachusetts

We live here on purpose. Boston is a great city.

This is our 2nd trip to Bermuda. It was a little cool and windy for beach and snorkeling (Early May), but we got to spend a lot of time exploring.


4 out of 5
NCL has good process for disembarking. We were prepared for the line, and scheduled a later time to leave.
