Review summary

We had a terrific time. The weather around us was beautiful. The hurricane in the atlantic made the ship sway A LITTLE BIT on our way to St. Thomas, but it was minimal. It felt so good to be on the water again. Norwegian has really worked hard to keep everyone as safe as possible (from Covid) and has their procedures down. The entire trip from start to end was relaxing and pleasurable.

Very well organized. We were tested by the cruiseline for COVID and checked in within an hour. Once the ship was available, we were onboard in minutes.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Impeccable. Everyone seemed happy to be on board. There was a full crew compliment with roughly 50% passengers, so we were well served.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Everything was immaculate.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
It was a smaller balcony cabin, but it had everything we needed. The shower had terrific water pressure and was hot when we wanted hot water. The bed was really very comfortable. We slept well. (We sleep on a temperpedic at home).

Ship tip

Download the Norwegian app. It is a great communication tool. It has the daily newsletter and you can keep track of your account without having to stand in line at customer service.
