We could not have been happier with our cruise.  We have sailed with Norwegian before, but this was the best trip ever!  This time we had the "beverage package" and could get a mimosa with breakfast, and mango meltdown with lunch, wine with dinner, and a nightcap after seeing a show.  The entertainment was great, the food good, and we enjoyed our shore excursions too.  Thankfully we booked our shore excursions with NCL because in Cozumel there were some problems (like a flat tire and another guest left her wallet) and we were late returning to the ship - but we were not left at the dock!  And we really, really, really like the "Freestyle" dining so we could go to eat when and with whom we wanted.  Hooray for NCL!!!

Food and Dining

Freestyle dining is the best. There were six in our group and we could choose to go to eat as couples or with all six, and we could pick whatever time we wanted.

Fantastic shows!

Our room steward was wonderful, and the bartenders at the Spinnaker lounge were awesome.

Our view from the balcony was restricted due to the design of the ship (we were forward so there was metal on either side of our balcony.) Next time we'll book a room more mid-ship so we can see out better.

Ship Tip

We really liked the aft seating area on Deck 12 and the Spinnaker lounge on Deck 13.

Go see the Crystal Caves! Yes, it is a long bus ride to and from the ship but well worth the time.
