Review summary

This was another great experience with NCL. We love to cruise with them, we regret that we cannot afford to do it every year. We are seniors and it involves a lot of saving for us, but it’s worth the sacrifice.

It was well organized and our wait in the holding area was not too bad, about an hour I think.

Guest Services

These people work very hard looking after people. One guy called Martin (from Peru) was so helpful to us fixing our communication package that Internet services couldn’t

All shows in the theater were outstanding. Burn the Floor was amazing on a par with a New York production. We enjoyed all the musical events throughout the ship.

Cabin / Stateroom

It was great! More room than I expected.i wish the fridge had been empty, not filled with booze. Our steward came and stored the booze for us in the stool, we need the fridge for our bottles of wAter.

Ship tip

A Bar Of Face Soap! The liquid hand soap provided is not good for your face.

Cozumel, Mexico

5 out of 5

Coxen Hole, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras

5 out of 5
No excursion but did a brief walk around

Harvest Caye, Belize

5 out of 5
No excursion . This is my favorite Port of call. We spent most of the day relaxing in the shade of a Palm tree. We watched the Dolphins do their tricks for a while. Did a little shopping for mementos. This is a heavenly place. The pool was lovely and everyone was having a good time in the sun.

Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico

5 out of 5
Another nice place to shop and buy a few trinkets.
