Returned just 2 days ago from a 3 night sailing to Nassau and Great Stirrup Cay with husband and our three boys. Overall, I would definitely sail NCL again!Embarkation was smooth and crew members were very welcoming. After the lifeboat drill though we were not able to return to our cabin because luggage belonging in the front of the ship was dumped in the aft so they had a few hallways and stairwells temporarily "closed."We never knew who our room steward was the entire trip, but all other crew members were very courteous and accommodating. I enjoyed the food much better than a recent Carnival cruise I was on 6 months earlier although it seemed they had only water to drink at lunch and dinner time instead of including iced tea or punch. The cruise director Patty was very informative and the "On the Radio" production show was excellent. Activities were plentiful and Great Stirrup Cay was very nice. I did see an instance in which I thought they pushed alcoholic beverages a bit too much. On Deck 10, they had a table set up with pre-made drinks and as guests were coming out of the door to the deck, staff would walk up with a drink and hand it to them as if the drink was being given to them. But they then followed up with a receipt to sign to charge the drink to their onboard account. I thought that was just a little too pushy!!!! Most of the important aspects of the ship were clean including the eating utensils which were spotless and very shiny. One final accolade.....the band FLEX was awesome!!! If you sail this ship, I think you'll be in for a good time. It's small but very cozy and welcoming. I found it to be a nice change from the competitions "party boat" attitude.
