Review Summary

This was the best cruise of my life for many reasons.  First and foremost, my son was chosen to be part of the Dream Quest TV show and he had the most amazing time being able to film with the film crew.  He got to do things like film a wedding underwater, interview Illusionarium cast members, and go down the water slides with a GoPro.  We will be forever grateful to NCL for making this dream come true for my son.  The new ship is stunning in every way.  The entertainment was top notch.  The specialty restaurants were impeccable.  The cruise director was very friendly, welcoming and had so much energy, talent, and character.  The port stops were just perfect and gave us just enough time to enjoy each place.  We are also grateful to the captain and his team for navigating us to avoid the hurricane in the area. By the end of the cruise, the ocean was so flat, it looked more like a lake! The Cruise Rewards/Cruise Next program is great, and the Cruise consultant was so professional, helpful and efficient. I am already booked on 5 more cruises with NCL, and I can't wait to take each one! I LOVE NCL and so does my whole family now who I am getting more of them to join.

One of my favourite places to eat, especially for breakfast, was Tropicana Grill just above Garden Cafe. Much less crowded than Garden Cafe, and the food is great!

Ship Tip

I loved all the specialty restaurants. To get times that you want, I would recommend you book each night before going onboard as times fill up fast, especially at places like Le Bistro.

Ports Of Call

Miami, Florida Did not visit port

I parked my car at Premier Cruise Parking for the week for a very reasonable cost.

Ocean Park is a great place and allows you to Sea Trek underwater with SNUBA gear. An amazing experience. We also did Skyride which was beautiful and free wifi :-)

Tortola, British Virgin Islands

I just walked around the port area which wasn't very interesting. But I heard the Virgin Gourd is worth going to.

Nassau, Bahamas

We went to Blue Lagoon and had a wonderful day and lunch there and spent an hour just watching the dolphins
