We chose this cruise because it had 4 ports in 7 days. This was our first Norwegian cruise.

We found the ship to be very clean and well cared for. The food and service in the restaurants without a service charge were very good. Did not try specialty restaurants.The entertainment was excellent. There were full shows every night. We rented a scooter in Cozumel and saw incredible beaches and snorkeled right off shore. Loved just bumming around the island. In Roatan and  Belize we took local culture tours. We enjoyed the feel of these countries as told by people who loved their country.  I highly recommend cave tubing in Belize. The rainforest , water, tropical plants, included in the cave tour were most unique. I felt safe in the caves.The ocean in Costa Maya is not as clear as the other ports. We rented a golf cart to see Costa Maya. Our rental included a kayak and snorkel by the beach. We cannot think of any complaints for this cruise. Well worth it.

Two walking tracts, deck 7 and deck 12.
There are two full shows each night. It's easier to get a seat for 9:15 show.
Check out music at Martini Bar. Excellent pianists.
Check out All outdoors restaurant which is connected to the garden Cafe.
