Review summary

Will not book NCL again. To many fees, pool to small

Embarkation

5 out of 5
We had paid for priority boarding and it went very smooth. Although, many people just cut in line and staff didn’t stop it.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Food was decent. Not enough variety for breakfast buffet. Was the same every single day. This was our 3rd cruise and we’ve had better food.

Ship tip

Make sure to have plenty of money on your ship card. NCL has lots of “fees”. And if you smoke, don’t expect to sit in the very small smoking area and relax. All you will get is a bunch of rude and loud drunk people. Passing out, falling, puking. The pool area is very small and the bar staff does not walk around for your drinks so lines are super long. Get 2 or 3 at a time!

Ports of call

Harvest Caye, Belize

1 out of 5
Very expensive! Your drink package can not be used here so bring cash! We ended up having to tender to island. The trip over was on a catamaran, but the trip back was in a dingy and it was miserable! 200 plus people in an enclosed area with no air! One lady almost passed out! NCL needs new options for this.

Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico

4 out of 5
Spent the day (well, a few hours done we were only in port until 2) at YaYa beach club. All inclusive. Beach area is small but Sergio was the best! Made sure we had drinks and food at all times! Even walked with my husband to an atm down the road! The beach side massage is a MUST! Lots and lots of pushy vendors though, which was very annoying!

Coxen Hole, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras

5 out of 5
This was our favorite! Honduras is beautiful! We did the zip line and beach excursion through shore excursioner! Much cheaper and the best experience! You go to west bay beach after zip line!

Cozumel, Mexico

5 out of 5
Clean port, lots of pushy vendors. Went to Mr. Sanchos for the day and loved it! All inclusive.

New Orleans, Louisiana
