Great Cruise

Sail Date: March 14, 2015

Reviewed: 2 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

food was great, entertainment was great, the staff was excellent very friendly. There was so much to do, impossible to do it all. Had to cancel 2 comped dinner res. because they were conflicting with other things we wanted to do. but not really a big deal because the buffet was out of this world. We had a front balcony suite on the 14th deck and the night swells rocked me to sleep. I usually only sleep about 4 hours at best each night but on this cruis I could hardly wake up in the morning , the best sleep I have ever had. There was a couple of thing I didn't like, for one the casino was very smoky and in the open not in a closed room and the smoke traveled everywhere, there were to restruants that we didn't try the Taste and Savor because the casino was right above and the smoke traveled down not a very good design so we ate a few times at the Tropicana room which was fantastic. The other thing was that you only get your itinerary the night before. and it would be nice if you got the whole weeks itinerary at the beginning of the week so you can better plan the events you wish to attend in stead of having to cancel things. this was our first cruise and we did enjoy it and would do it again with NCL

Cabin / Stateroom it was very nice. the steward turns your bed down at night and leaves a towel animal on you bed which we thought we nice. My saved them and took a pic of them all
Philipsburg, St. Maarten We did not care for this Island. Down town was old and people asking for money
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas This was the best Island, very clean no crime. would like to live there one day
Nassau, Bahamas It was good and the history was interesting. some areas were very poor but and nice island and Atlantis was nice to see


Taste and Savor, much to smoky for us, the casino was right above. Second hand smoke is not good. this was a poor design. The Tropicana room was way better with live entertainment and the same menu
