Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
Food and drink were okay. A step down from Celebrity though on main dining room food selections that are standard daily offerings.

Onboard Activities

2 out of 5
We do not like the layout of the ship. Had to go from one deck to another deck to get from aft to bow.


2 out of 5
Lacking. Entertainers were mostly second class versus entertainment on Celebrity.

Service and Staff

4 out of 5
Cabin steward was wonderful (Liado) and Grand Pacific waiters Jebeedee and Galileo were wonderful.

Ship Quality

2 out of 5
Don't like the interior layout but the ship was clean.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Found the cabin adequate but a little compact. Bathroom needed some upgrades such as the toilet and shower leaked water in front of the sink after a shower. But we made do.

Fairly standard ship on Norwegian. We have sailed on the Jewel and Spirit in the past.
