Review summary

Loved this trip and loved Norwegian Cruise line. My only suggestion to them is to offer an all in photo package. It is so hard to pick out the good photos and then to leave the others ones behind because you can only pick so many.

Little longer than it should have been. They do need to work on getting a bit more organized on how they get everyone onto the ship faster.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
We did not have one bad meal. There could have been a bit more selection of food at the late night buffet but understand too many selections means too much food going to waste.

Indigo Main Dining Room

5 out of 5

Loved the service in this dining room. They went over the top to ensure you felt special.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
Loved the bingo. The pay outs should have been a bit higher for the number of people playing though.

Went to the show every night and was not disappointed. The variety was enough so you didn't feel as if you were seeing the same thing twice.

Children's Programs

Did not have any children traveling with us.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
The service was awesome on 95% of the entire crew. You could point out the ones whose contract was up and were getting ready to go home for a break though.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
The staff worked really hard to ensure everything was clean.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
It was a great size for 3 adult people. We had a mini-suite and was great. My son didn't like the sofa bed but knew it was a sofa bed and how good can they really be. If you are going to use the sofa bed bring an air mattress or something to make it a bit softer to sleep on.

Ship tip

Enjoy yourself!!!

Ports of call

New Orleans, Louisiana

3 out of 5
I have never really like New Orleans so I would not be a good judge of the port.

Cozumel, Mexico

5 out of 5
We loved this port. We did the Amazing Secret River excursion and loved every second of it. It is so amazing. We went over to Playa del Carmen for this trip and loved the town.

Coxen Hole, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras

3 out of 5
Loved the excursion. We did the BOSS trip which included snorking. The town is a bit scary though.

Harvest Caye, Belize

5 out of 5
Loved the island. We did parasailing again it was amazing. We walked around the island and they spent some time at the pool.

Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico

5 out of 5
Great location. We swam with the dolphins and loved it. We then went into town and did some traditional Mexican shopping. It wasn't expensive to take the shuttle and then a taxi back.

Had no problems getting off the ship but did have issues with the port area trying to get the uber to us and then getting out.
