Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Main dining rooms and buffets were very good. Didn’t go to any specialty restaurants.

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
Main pool was to small. Kids have their own play areas but, parents let their kids dominate the small pool. Parents need to control their kids. It’s not NCL’s and other passengers responsibilities to attend to your children.

Entertainment

5 out of 5
Syd Norman’s was awesome. Great bands and music.

Service and Staff

This was perfect. Loved having the door open at night and listening to the ocean.

Ship tip

Tip, Tip, Tip! You want a great experience? Then tip the staff. That gratuity that’s included is nothing to the staff. Take care of them and they will take care of you.

Ports of call

New Orleans, Louisiana

2 days of Mardi Gras was perfect prep for fun on the ship. Go to Tiki Tolteca for liver and vacation prep.

Cozumel, Mexico

Upscale version of Tijuana. However, we did the Jet Boat excursion and it was a blast!

Coxen Hole, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras

By far our favorite port! The people and staff are awesome. We did the Turquoise Bay VIP package.. You have got to do this! We felt like royalty! 20 stars in my book.

Harvest Caye, Belize

4 out of 5
Weather didn’t cooperate so, everything was shut down. Beautiful place, but drinks are way, way, way overpriced. 18.00 for 2 beers is crazy! Tender boat operators were very rude when talking to people.

Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico

5 out of 5
Another beautiful port. Do the Aviary tour. It’s so cool. Gets very crowded when 3 or more ships are in port. Go to the main town and have lunch and drinks on the beach. Pretty awesome!

Disembarkation

2 out of 5
Felt disorganized and rushed! Hated being hearded around the ship.
