Room was cleaned twice a day like clockwork. They did a good job mostly but did see that the tables were not wiped down properly.

Ship was clean and big

Cabin / Stateroom

1 out of 5
room was nice and roomy and fit 3 adults well but the room was right above the Cavern Club and between 8 and 11 pm every night we had to hear everything that went on in the club and the drum were really bad. it was shaking the room.

Ship tip

Dont stay on 9th floor.

All the ports were great experience. Took city tours in all 3 ports but in Cabo, you have to take a tender to the shore and those tend to be busy, so please plan. Dress for warm weather even in winter. All the city tours had some walking to do.

Cabo San Lucas, Mexico

5 out of 5
Loved Cabo. Took a non-ncl tour but it wasnt difficult to find. nice tour bus and also glass bottom tour.

Mazatlan, Mexico

5 out of 5
Loved Cabo. Took a non-ncl tour but it wasnt difficult to find. nice tour bus but the tour guide had us walking a lot and not a lot of places were open on Christmas day.

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico

5 out of 5
tool an NCL tour. Had some walking to do. The place they stopped for lunch didnt have too much vegetarian choices.


3 out of 5
LA port took too long to clear the ship and the self assist line and distance to walk was a lot.
