Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
Tropicana Main Dining Room was very good. I was very disappointed with my entree at Le Bistro Specialty Restaurant. It tasted good, but all I got were 3 tiny pieces of lamb and about 6 bean seeds. There were no other vegetables. I have been in this restaurant on other NCL cruise ships and it was my favorite Specialty Restaurant and the lamb was excellent and portion was also good. I expressed my displeasure to the head waiter, but did not get much of a response, except that "That's how French Restaurants prepare their dishes, but I have been to other French restaurants and if they serve a plate that small, you are also served other courses. My wife's entree was good and the portion size was fine.

Onboard Activities

Entertainment was very good in the theater and the bars.

The pool for adults is very small for a ship with over 4000 passengers. Too small to swim in when there were 8-10 people in it. with only 2 hot tubs, they were always crowded as well.

The Atrium

4 out of 5

Very good artists and music.

Children's Programs

No children on board, but was impressed with the water slide and rope climbing facility.

Cabin / Stateroom

King Bed was comfortable. Room size adequate. Loved the balcony. Room was near the aft and close to Tropicana Dining Room and most other dining rooms and bars. A bit far from the theater, but needed the exercise anyway.

Ports of call

Miami, Florida

Went to the Beach at both Roatan and Harvest Caye and we were lucky to have had great beach weather. Not much to choose from for other excursions in these 2 stops. Loved Chacchoben Mayan Ruins Tour from Costa Maya and the Tulum Mayan Ruins from Cozumel.
