Review summary

We like the smaller ships better for easier accessibility to shows and eating. Hate that we have to pay for soda. I don’t understand who would drink so much soda, that a $66.00 charge per person is warranted. We had a family of 7, not buying for everyone. But I see still love NCL for their freestyle dining.

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
Buffet is bland, but where we eat most. Specialty restaurants really good, but hard to get into. House restaurants really good.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
Kids enjoyed the slides and ripe course. I did the rock wall. Pools obviously overcrowded, but expected with a larger ship. Still found chairs on a higher deck.


5 out of 5
For who we could get to see awesome. Scheduling free shows are annoying, but understandably necessary. Couldn’t get to see all because of that.

Service and Staff

All workers are awesome as usual!

Ship Quality
