Enjoyable Family Trip

Sail Date: April 10, 2016

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Balcony

Freestyle food and choices were great!  Specialty "you pay for" dining restaurants for the most part weren't overpriced. Housekeeping was alright. Excursions were OK-some were just too long to enjoy any kind of wandering or exploring on your own time. More choices thru NCL's Excursions would have been nice too. Could use more on board shopping stores and merchandise choices. (FYI-Liquor purchases both on board and off are kept until the last night of your cruise.)

Cabin / Stateroom
Adult bed was great. Kids bunk and couch bed combo were too hard for any kind of comfort or good sleep.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Let too many people check in early. Why book a embarkation time, if everyone could just come whenever they wanted anyways?
Ship Quality
Destinations and Excursions
More choices would be nice and also more time on the islands to "wander around". Some of the excursions were too long to enjoy the island except thru the windows on the bus.
Onboard Activities
Need to have more choices & shows during the day (especially on "At Sea" days).
Children's Programs
Didn't apply to us, as our kids were over 15.
The "shows" to sign up for were always in the evening. Would like to see early afternoon shows offered, especially on "At Sea" days.
Service and Staff
Food and Dining


Suggestion... Don't sign up for long excursions at every island, or you won't have time to walk around and shop or take in the local sights.
