As the time got closer for our cruise I was concerned that it would be too long or there wouldn't be enough to do ~ Boy was I silly for worrying! 11 days was incredible! The ship itself was very clean, the servers and employees all very nice. The room is a bit small compared to the same type room on Royal and Princess, but it was definitely workable because there were lots of cubbies to store clothes for the 4 of us. The beds are so/so comfort wise, but again absolutely workable.  One thing I liked was we could sleep with our sliding door open and listen to the waves without the a/c being shut off - this was very nice!Happy  Overall the food was pretty decent and there was a good amount of choices no matter where you ate. We had no complaints and I would rank them a close second to Princess and above Royal. We will definitely be booking on NCL again!



Ship Quality
Food and Dining
Cabin / Stateroom
Service and Staff
We went to at least one show a night - there is a good mixture from singing to comedians and other acts, some were fabulous, some just a bit under par. The singers for the ship were pretty good, but there is not a lot of scenery or anything. The outside acts were all very talented
Children's Programs
We had a pre-teen and teen - the Teen LOVED the club and met a lot of new kids - we barely saw him the whole trip :) our pre-teen was happy with her experience too.
Onboard Activities
We didn't really utilize this, but there appeared to be a lot of different activities to choose from ; there was photography, cooking, art, wine and beer classes and lots more.
Destinations and Excursions We found we liked the excursions we booked off the cruise better.
