We enjoyed the cruise very much. Smooth seas, warm weather, sights to see. The ship was very nice.

Very good entertainment, but the music was very loud. We had to leave two performances due to the volume and "noise."

Service and Staff

Everyone was friendly and gave attention to any requests made.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
This is a large ship with a LOT of people. Know what you are getting and be prepared. Very nice ship with great people; just a lot of them.

Cabin / Stateroom

Our cabin was clean, large, loved the sliding door for all the light it let in. Great cabin steward.

Ship tip

Not very "formal." Won't need much in the way of "dress up" clothes.

Did not do an excursion.

Coxen Hole, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras

5 out of 5
Did a great excursion on a "glass bottom" boat. Rainy day, but great tour guide and sightseeing. Was a little disorganized to start; not a part of NCL.

George Town, Grand Cayman

3 out of 5
Due to wind conditions, we had to port at the far end of the island. Not the fault of anyone, just done for safety.

Ocho Rios, Jamaica

5 out of 5
Had a bus ride tour of the island. Visited a coffee grove, chocolate producer, small grade school, and lots of sights. A very fine day.
