Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
We loved the Alizar! The buffet line with the different stations made deciding what we wanted so easy.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
We spent a lot of time in the clubs at night, and were never crowded. The only issue was by Magnum. The smoke from the casino was really bad at night.

Entertainment

4 out of 5
The musicians, especially Dave was wonderful, the stage shows NCL had done a lot better on other ships

Children's Programs

5 out of 5
We can't rate this one. We had no kids with us.

Service and Staff

Our room stewardess, Vanessa was wonderful, we never had to ask for anything, it was all done. The same with the waitstaff. The photographers were really great, especially Lorileie

Ship Quality

They were always on top of everything.

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
The cabin was a little small, but doable with the exception of the bathroom. A large person would have an issue in there. Especially using the toilet.

Ship tip

If you like the medium ships this is the one to be on. We have sailed on many others, and since the Majesty was sold we never thought we would find a new one we loved.

Ports of call

Miami, Florida

San Juan, Puerto Rico

This was a late port. We only went to the local shops right off of the ship since we had been there before. Had a few snacks and went back to relax on the ship.

Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas

We loved this island, the differences of both cultures of the Dutch and French was amazing. If I could talk my husband to move there I would.
