We've done a number of cruises with NCL, but we had never done a 5 night cruise. This was just right. For the 7 night cruises, we start to get really homesick on day 6 and really ready to go home on day 7. This was wonderful. I especially loved being in port overnight. That allowed us to go on multiple excursions to see more of Cabo.


We got the beverage package and the dining package. The beverage package made our many trips to the bar so easy! And the dining package allowed us to go to the specialty restaurants that we were always looking at. I can't say enough wonderful things about the specialty restaurants. We went to Cagney's, Moderno, and La Cucina.


We didn't go to the pool or the hot tub because there were too many people, but we found lots of places for reading. We did go to all of the art auctions and seminars. Those are always fantastic. The art team was very helpful with making sure that we got the pieces that we wanted. That was probably the highlight of our vacation!

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Holy cow the food was fantastic! The buffet was hit or miss as was the food by the pool, but every time we ate in the dining room, it was wonderful. The specialty restaurants were great! So glad we got the dining package! I wish we had tried it before!

The service was wonderful all around. We had the beverage and dining package. The employees at the bar and at the restaurants were wonderful at explaining the packages to us.

Cabin / Stateroom

All was good with the cabin. Everything was very clean and welcoming. The only issue we had was that the safe didn't work. We never got around to reporting it, but I'm sure it would have been fixed if we had.
