Nice ship but not so nice ports

Sail Date: January 24, 2015

Reviewed: 2 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

We enjoyed the ship and we had fun but the ports of Belize and Honduras were horrible. We have seen these ports in pictures that other cruise lines use and these are not on the best part of these islands. Norwegian takes you to bad areas not pretty at all. The food on the ship was not that great and neither was most of the entertainment. We had fun but we were disappointed. We had heard that Norwegian was better than Carnival but we thought Carnival was much better. 

Ship Quality
The ship is gorgeous and is kept very clean
Food and Dining
The food was not that great.
Cabin / Stateroom
Very small for a balcony room
Service and Staff
Everyone was friendly and accommodating.
The bar entertainment was like the same sound all the time. Needed more excitement and getting the crowd involved.
Children's Programs
Onboard Activities
Destinations and Excursions
Belize and Honduras were horrible. The beaches were not pretty and very bad part of the islands.
