Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
My only complaint is no straws, so if you plan on any frozen drinks I’d pack some straws. I managed to drink them😀 just would have been better with a straw. We ate at cagneys, ocean blue and Q all were delicious.

Onboard Activities

We got passes to Vibe and enjoyed it very much. We also spent time at the adult pool. Some say in other reviews that it was small, seemed perfect to us


We could not get into any shows as they were sold out

I know it happens in Mexico but just too many people asking you to buy something every 3feet!! Went to lunch at Cabo Wabo, not bad.

Mazatlan, Mexico Did not visit port

Didn’t get off the ship

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico Did not visit port

Very pretty. We took a cab downtown and walked around

Terrible!!! CBP was an hour late in clearing the ship. Then it got too congested so the stopped us from getting off the ship. Estimated to be off at 8:00am, we got off at 9:45.stood in another huge line at customs. Caught a cab at 10:15 and got to the airport at 11:05 ( flight at 11:50) we bought transfers through NCL but would have missed our flight if we took the transfer
