Review summary

AWESOME! I cannot wait to plan the next adventure with Norweigan!

Embarkation

5 out of 5
I would recommend getting to the port earlier in the morning to get a lower boarding group number. We received group number 2 and were already relaxing by the pool with a drink at noon. Very easy process.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Specialty dining is AMAZING. Highly recommend getting the drink and dining package. Drinks range from $9-$12 so it pays off if you're going to have more than 2 drinks a day.

Ocean Blue on the Waterfront

5 out of 5

We did not make a reservation for this restaurant, but they were able to accommodate us with a table outside. It was so beautiful and not windy at all! I highly recommend NOT using a dining package with this restaurant as they upcharge you $18 per person. The lobster I got was perfectly cooked and cut in half so I could easily it. I am from new England and usually have lobster all the time, and this lobster is certainly top 3. Especially since it was only $25. They gave us complimentary prosecco which was the icing on top. The wait staff and manager were so attentive and polite. Favorite meal and restaurant on the ship.

Onboard Activities

Pool was smaller than expected, but still very relaxing. The ropes course was over rated, but nice to do on a port day when it is not too crowded. We played a lot of mini golf which was very fun!

Entertainment

5 out of 5
The dinner and show (Cirque Dreams) was OUTSTANDING. The food is perfect and show is broadway quality.

Ship Quality

Be prepared to walk! It is a huge ship and we got lost a few times, but their signs and electronic interactive wall displays were super helpful.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Much larger than expected! We had a balcony for 2 and we had plenty of room.

Must do ATV and snorkel! by far the best excursion I have ever been on. I was expecting us to go slow and accommodate beginners, but they were able to arrange us by experience. We were right up front and it was sometimes hard to keep up, but we loved the challenge. They have muddy areas, so wear watershoe's and clothes you don't mind ruining. Afterwards we were able to do a tequila tasting and snorkel in pristine waters. They provided all transportation and it is nice to get away from the touristy areas.
