Nice Overall Cruise.....with a few issues

Sail Date: July 26, 2014

Reviewed: 2 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

Pros:  1). Brand new ship. 2). Large and spacious. 3). Great food. 4). Nice large casino. 5). Nice cabin although a little small. 6).  Great private adult lounging section aft of boat. 7). Staff could not be more friendly. 8). Embarkation and debarkation a breeze. 9). Entertainment was good. 


Cons:  1). Only one small pool for 3000+ guests. 2). Need another pool and more umbrellas in adult outdoor section (H2O).  3). Lots and lots of kids making lots of noise especially in the hallways late at night. This seemed to be more controlled after several complaints.  4). Very small balcony off stateroom. 


We we have cruised with NCL 10 times. Love the free style atmosphere.  Although this ship has some issues it was one of the better NCL cruises we have taken.  Happy

Very nice beach right at port with reasonably umbrella fees.
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas
Nassau, Bahamas
Guess we have worn out the Bahama thing. Don't like downtown at all.


Unless you have kids stay off the Deck 12 as this is where the Kids Center is located. Ship is so large I would recommend booking a cabin in the center of the ship. We we located near the front and did tons of walking as it lots of stuff is located aft. Get outside early as few umbrellas.
