Review summary

I would do this ship again in a heartbeat. Loved everything about it, the ports, the ship, the food, the beverages, the crew. Everyone is so helpful and there to make sure you have the best experience. Just an amazing time. It was our 7th cruise but our first with NCL. Love NCL so much that we are booked on a Caribbean cruise for next year.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
We did not sign up for any specialty dining. We are most our meals in one of the 3 dining rooms. Also ate at the Social one night.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
My husband did the race cars and loved it. We were usually at the Atrium or the Wave bar. Lots of fun activities to either be a spectator or be involved in.

We did not see Footloose but saw Elements which was great and The Beatles Revolution in the Theatre which was outstanding!!

Ship Quality

The ship was clean and the layout, well it's huge!! Alot of walking from one end to the other but that was the fun part about it.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Loved everything about our cabin. The size, the balcony the layout. It was always clean. I don't know how the steward did it but everytime we came back to the room it was made up and cleaned.

Love Cabo, have been there several times. We did not do an excursion. Just walked the city on our own.

Well we signed up for Priority boarding and disembarkation and noone knew where to put us for the Disembarkation. It didn't take us too long but we should've have been able to get off with the other Priority people.
