I cannot in good faith recommend this cruise because even though there were certain things
that were enjoyable, I believe they were outweighed by the negative experiences. The good:
Food was very good at the buffet (did not go to the dining rooms). Our cabin balcony was
very enjoyable. Room steward was very pleasant. Negatives: My luggage was searched for
contraband because of an unopened bottle of aloe juice and arrived much later with a big red banner with the word "ALCOHOL" on it. This was very embarrassing to me as it was left outside my
cabin door for possibly hours before I realized it was there. The entertainment was not up to the
standard I had expected. Too many of the on-board activities required more money. I personally felt,during the cruise, that NCL was more focused on how they could make the most money than
my personal enjoyment. I would not go back on this cruise and therefore cannot recommend it.

our meals. The balcony was big enough. We did not have a view of the NCL private island when we docked. It was on the other side. I do not know if this is always the case.
The balcony stateroom is well worth the cost. It added an additional level of enjoyment to the cruise. It increased the level of relaxation. Port side does not necessarily mean you will be facing
land when the ship docks.
