This was a very nice cruise all in all. It was much more relaxed than other major cruise lines. We liked that we weren't constantly approached to buy things or even alcoholic beverages. The freestyle dining was really convenient.
The food was good, not spectacular but good. The cabin, was not big enough for 3 people! It was O.K. for 2, but the xtra bed was ridiculous. It was just crammed in there.
The crew was very nice and accomadating but we do have to say that we were very disappointed on the last day, when we arrived at Miami. It was as though they had turned off the "nice" button on the crew!! My son and daughter-in-law were literally thrown out of the room. They had had breakfast, and went back for their things and last minute bathroom, but were treated very badly.
The breakfast experience that last day was absolutely"horrible"!. We were very surprised since ,up to then, it had been great.
As for the shore excursions, the one we bought on the boat was for the day at a resort in Freeport. It was the "Taino Beach restaurant and resort". The place was really beautiful.The price was good and lunch was what you expect. The way we were"handled" was not good. We ad to wait for about an hour to get on the bus. They made us walk 2 blocks in the heat to get to the hotel and the driver, who was in a really bad mood, made us leave at 3 o'clock which was much too early. We couldn't truly enjoy the whole day since we got there around 11;30 and had to leave at 3. The boat didn't leave until after 5 o'clock so we could have had another hour and a half at the beach. Isn't that the whole purpose of going on a cruise to the Carribbean???
All in all it was a good cruise and we would take Norwegian again. Hopefully the down sides will have been taken care of next time...

The bingo was a "rip off" we were led to believe that they were going to give away a very large prize on the last day of Bingo only to be told it was "rolled over" for the next cruise!!!!! Very Bad!!!

Our cabin was just too small for 3 people. We travelled on Carnival and their 3 person cabin was much bigger.

Needs trees, and more amenities. The "snorkel experience" is a rip off.
