First experience with Norwegian and first 'longer then four day cruise'.  This was a last minute, inexpensive trip.  Our room was the least expense room possible and still have a port hole.  The room was more the adequate and the guy taking care of our room was awesome.  The ship's crew went out of their way to see that our concerns were met. Food was really good and the serving sizes perfect.

  Jim, the 'piano man' provided great entertainment.  My only semi complaint was that their wasn't more entertainment at night and that there wasn't more actives during the day.  There was a tendency to schedule several 'awesome options' at the same time and then nothing later.

   The nightly shows were fantastic..wish there other shows to go to in addition to this show.  The last night there was a 'liar's club' show in addition to the regular show.  Would have liked to have seen more of this each night.

With over four 'sea days' with that there could have been another 'port day'. In all, really fun, good ten day cruise.  Loved the Panama Canal

On sea days, too many 'good options' scheduled at same time and not enough options later in the day.

More at night? Options were one show and some music. Perhaps a comedy club option? Jim the piano man was awesome.
