Review summary

NCL has performed the seemingly impossible. They have provided a great cruise with above average dining for the average cruiser, great ports of call and phenomenal entertainment, all at a very appealing value price point. One bit of advice: NCL should consider different seating in the headliners bar and club. The hard, straight-backed chairs can get very uncomfortable after 15 or 20 minutes. A minor thing but worth mentioning.

24th cruise. This was the smoothest embarkation process ever.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

The facilities were great. However, I am a vegetarian for medical reasons and found an extremely limited selection of dining opportunities.

As always, NCL has the best entertainment of any cruise line. The entertainment during this cruise was perhaps the best we have experienced and was truly "Broadway Quality".

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
The ship was spotless and I was surprised to discover that it is scheduled for refurbishment. A great ship. A large vessel which offered the personal approach of a much smaller vessel.

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
We were traveling at a bargain price so we adjusted our expectations accordingly. Still, the beds could be softer. Otherwise, the room was clean, comfortable and of acceptable size. The bathroom was surprisingly large for a lower deck stateroom. Overall, very good.

Ship tip

DO NOT miss the Broadway style shows. "Burn the Floor" and "The Million Dollar Quartet were amazing.

Ports of call

Miami, Florida

Basically a day at the beach but a beautiful beach just the same.

Coxen Hole, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras

5 out of 5
We are avid snorkelers and Roatan is perhaps the best we've experience. Don't miss Tabyana Beach.

Cozumel, Mexico

5 out of 5
We've been to Cozumel over a dozen times and it continues to reinvent itself to remain interesting.
