Only thing missing was a comedy club. We enjoy the comedy shows on other ships.

My favorite places to go were Spinnaker lounge and Bali hai to see our spectacular bartenders Sherwin and Agus! Our room steward Alex made us a cute towel animals on our last night.

A little on the smaller side but fine for 2 people.

Ship tip

Tip your bartenders an extra dollar cash for every drink and you will get the best service!

Ports of call

Tortola, British Virgin Islands

We just shopped the port. It was a little more expensive than the other islands.

Bridgetown, Barbados

Went to Harbor lights and swam with the sea turtles! One of the best ports of the trip!

Basseterre, St. Kitts

5 out of 5
The highlight of my entire trip! We went to shipwreck beach bar and watched the monkeys! Drinks were cheap and strong. The bar was rustic hence the name but that is what we liked about it. I paid 10 dollars to a man with a 4 month old monkey so I could hold him.

Castries, St. Lucia

We went to Bay gardens spa and resort. It was okay but not enough time to get your monies worth as we paid 95 dollars a person.

St. John's, Antigua

3 out of 5
Nelsons dockyard was a little boring for us. I should have planned a beach day instead.

Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas

Loved feeding the fish dog bones at Coki beach as always!

Boston, Massachusetts

4 out of 5
Everyone runs red lights, makes driving a little frustrating.

Had to stand out in cold for over an hour but that was not Norwegians fault.
