What a great cruise!

I recommend this cruise to anyone! The Ultimate Beverage Package (UBP) was the best deal we ever had on a cruise and NCL makes it easy than ever to redeem any drink that is included, just swipe and drink (drinks $15 or less, which is pretty much anything). The UBP is written on your card so the bartenders/servers know you have the package (simple and easy). One tip, bring your own water bottle for water, it will save you time going back a forth to get water between drinks (hydrated = happy!) The food was exquisite at all dining rooms and specialty restaurants. SAVOR and TASTE were wonderful for dining at breakfast time and evenings (no wait for tables of two NICE!). Cagney's was our favorite, lobster and crab cake (too die for!) as well as Modern Churrascaria and Teppanayaki (the chefs put on a good showWink). The crew makes the difference, so nice and willing to serve each guest. We loved the extra touch of fresh towels, wet mint-scented cloths and cold water at every port. Little things like that go a long way when you are sticky from the beach. The Million Dollar Quartet was the BEST show we have ever seen on a cruise ship. The GLOW party is a must, dont forget to bring a white outfit and extra glow sticks. The ropes course was very challenging and the plank is a daring adventure for your nerves.Happy The water slides are super fast even for adults.  We cant wait to go back and do it again. Thanks for a great time Norwegian Getaway!
