Review summary

Great vacation and cruise. NCL is now our go to cruise line and can’t wait to book our next adventure with them

Embarkation

5 out of 5
Embarkation was easy. From the time we checked in to the time we got on the ship it was about an hour and a half. We got there at 9:45am. Terminal opened at 10. Right through security and there was no line for check in. We probably were at check in for 20 mi And upstairs we went. We got boarding group one. 11:45 we were boarding the ship.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Taste and savor were the two main dining rooms we ate at. Food and service was better in taste than savor. For the specialty restaurants we ate at moderno- Brazilian style. Meat was cooked perfectly. We also ate at cagynes- steakhouse. Meat was cooked perfectly to our liking. I just prefer my dads steak a little more than here. Third restaurant we ate at was la chucina- Italian food. Very good. This place is good place to sit outside for dinner. We didn’t because of the wind factor. Food was excellent. Last place was teppanki- they cook right in front of you. Food was great and the show they put on is awesome. Buffet was just your typical breakfast food. During lunch they bring out a lot of different options. Dinner is also cool up there because they theme it every night to something different for everyone.

Atrium Bar

5 out of 5

Ann banana and Nellie(yum yum). Amazing bartenders that knows how to make great drinks. Even on the packed port days they made sure to check in on everyone to make sure they were okay or if they needed anything else.

Mixx Bar

5 out of 5

Steady Eddy was the highlight of this bar. We feel in love with him. We can’t say anything negative about him and his bar. Eddy is very friendly and told us all about himself and how long he has been working with NCL. Told us where to go in each port of call if we didn’t have things planned. He went above and beyond to get us what we needed to drink. If they were out of the specific alcohol he made sure to order more for the next day. We miss our nightly drinks with him

Chill Bar

1 out of 5

Spice h2o was the worst bar on the ship. The service was terrible and it would take up to 45 minuets to get a drink. The bar was also way under staffed for the amount of people back there

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
The main adults pool was great. So many of the pool games took place here. Fitness center was very clean and had a lot of equipment.

Ports of call

2 out of 5
We just stayed right in the little port area and did a little shopping and went right back on the ship. There also much excursions to pick from for us to do. It’s great to say I’ve been there and the next time we will stay on board the ship.

Harvest Caye, Belize

5 out of 5
The pool and the beach were very nice. Great private island for NCL and would definitely get off the boat again if we stop here again

Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico

5 out of 5
The port area is a maze to get out of but it’s very clean and a lot of shops to pick from. We did maya Chan for our excursion. This place is amazing. Staff was great and very attentive. Small private beach was great too.

Cozumel, Mexico

5 out of 5
Amazing as always. Cozumel bar hop was our excursion and it was great. Visiting the other side of the island was fantastic.
