We had a good time. Though I wish there was more time in the ports. It was unfortunate that our time in Nassau, Bahamas was cut short. The ship offered many amenities (many restaurants, big casino, lots of entertainment), but we found that after cruising on a big ship, that we prefer a smaller ship. Just too many people on the big ship. We also felt that on the bigger ship, crowd organization was not as efficient. I think NCL could use some improvement in some of the shore excursion "crowd control". While we enjoyed seeing The Baths (Tortola), we felt that there was no guidance or organization with people venturing through the caves. However, in all fairness to NCL, it should be said that some passengers should have used better discretion on whether they should have gone on this excursion. Some people had physical limitations that tended to slow things down quite a bit.
This ship had some of of the best storage capacity in the balcony rooms that we have experienced on other ships, including NCL ships. I commend NCL on very effective use of a small space.
The fitness center is too small for that many passengers. Could use some improvement there.
All in all we truly did enjoy ourselves. Just a few things that NCL could improve on with a ship of so many passengers. However, we would choose to take a smaller cruise next time. :)

Loved Wasabi! Some of the best sushi we've had. Kudos to the chefs!
