Third cruise in a row with Norwegian. Love the specialty dining. Had the free beverage package as it seems everyone else did. Didn't seem to have as many waiters milling around on deck as usual which made it hard to get service. My teenagers 13 year olds all loved Entourage Teen Club. Find all staff friendly & helpful. The only complaint I have is that we had to tender in Honduras & the time there was so short anyway that it was very rushed. We ended up getting back in Houston 8 hours early so I don't see why we couldn't have stayed in Honduras a little longer.

Room was fine. Seemed hot though even though we had on lowest setting. Steward was very attentive.

Specialty dining was fantastic as always. Didn't find the service in the main dining rooms as good as specialty restaurants.
Houston, Texas
Cozumel, Mexico
Shopping is the best here so leave time to shop. They will haggle & come down on everything.
Belize City, Belize
The shark/stingray tour was ok. Not a lot of stingrays & only 2 sharks. They don't stay around long so get in water right away. The island is really cool though.
Coxen Hole, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras
If you have an excursion booked not through cruise line get on that 1st tender that morning. Little French Key was amazing.


Most shows are at 7:30 & 9:30 so plan your dining accordingly.
