Review summary

It has left us questioning if we will take another cruise on NCL or at all. We are looking at all inclusive options for our next trip. My hope is that NCL will tweak some things to make for a better experience for all.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
The food was a disappointment. The specialty restaurants were lacking and overall the food was salty no matter where went.

Cagney's on the Waterfront

The biggest dissapointment of all 😞

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
The shows were amazing and The Vibe Club made our trip. Thank god for both of them.

Vibe Beach Club

5 out of 5

Having the Vibe Beach Club was a life saver for us. We don’t have kids and the ship was far too crowded. Having the peace and quiet of the Vibe Beach Club was perfect plus we met some really nice people.

No kids

Service and Staff

The servers in all restaurants, buffet areas were outstanding.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
The ship feels small for the amount of passengers it carries. We were on the Epic a few years ago and never felt encumbered by the overwhelming amount of passengers. It felt more like a Carnival Cruise than a Norwegian Cruise and that’s not a compliment.

Cabin / Stateroom

2 out of 5
Room was very small and the air conditioning only ran for 15 minutes at a time. We kept waking up because it was hot and we needed to restart the AC. and the bed wasn’t very comfortable. The balcony was also very small.

Ship tip

Get the Vibe Beach Club deal - it’s well worth it!

Ports of call

Coxen Hole, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras

We didn’t book an excursion and there wasn’t much to offer in the immediate port location .

Harvest Caye, Belize

3 out of 5
I can’t say much about the port as we went to NCL’s island and tried the beach and decided to do the pool for a while. We stayed for about 45 minutes and then returned to the ship. I would have liked an adult pool only option.

Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico Did not visit port

We didn’t book an excursion and there didn’t seem to be anything at tg at the immediate port.

Cozumel, Mexico

3 out of 5
We did the Playa Mia excursion along with about 7 or 8 other cruise ships. It was ok. The drinks were good but the food was awful. Next time will book another excursion.
