Review summary

The ship was clean and our room was nice. Staff were pleasant for the most part. The shows were saw (Burn the Floor, Howl at the Moon) were great fun. The shopping was nice for a small area. Ports were great with the exception of Belize which was like an extension of the ship. The food was fairly good, but the same menu in all three included dining areas. Noodle bar was so bad we left after a few bites. Wasabi's was amazing. The security on board did nothing when a group of underage kids (under 18) were under the influence in areas that were designated adults being loud,offensive and trashing area throughout the cruise. Disembarkation was quick and well organized.

Great fun but beware when they say no jewelry they mean it. Not even a tiny diamond in my nose I haven't had out in many years.

Super fun but staff did nothing when a little girl got stung by a bee. I offered her help and found mom.

Very crowded most days. People get too serious about saving chairs in the morning.

Getaway Casino

Games were fun didn't see anyone hit a good win. Drink service is practically non existent unless you go to the bar.

Ship tip

Check your bill daily on the NCL app. If it's not right make them fix it right away. Our watchful eye ended in them giving us an extra $25.00 in on board credit
