Review summary

First I will say most of the trip was like others we have had on ncl. We will use ncl again. There were a few downsides. 

Main dining room and buffet food not as good as we were used to. Specialties were very good on the other side of the coin. 

Nola port was slower on and off then we have seen before. Not horrible Just give yourself enough time for it. 

Shows were average even though we loved the cruise staff lead shows/ and games. Most were hilarious and Sin the assistant director is a great find. 

We did get rained out in Belize but went cavetubing so we were wet any way. 

Costa maya I didn't like the port area. Shops were pushy and some rude. Pricing there is higher so shop in Cozumel if you want better pricing. Wish we had done the beach there as some said it was great.
