I have been on other cruises before and have to say that this cruise was an overall good experience as opposed to an excellent experience. 


-freestyle dining--I love that we could choose whenever to go to dinner and we don't have to feel awkward sitting with other people

-easy disembark--no hassle, easy to walk off, no long lines to get off ship

-service--stateroom, dining, guest services..all were friendly and attentive!

-lots of different bands to entertain us

-lots of different bars to go to

-I liked the new year's eve party, but there's no party like a party boat sailing in the caribbean sea! Party earlier like 10 pm and go til 2! The one i went to started at 11 and ended at 12:30. C'mon now, let's PARTY like it's 2015!


-picture gallery was not as wide. places to take pictures were weirdly spaced out and photographer did not really know how to position us.

-library was hidden

-spa was not as grand (and there were no spa tours!) and was ridiculously expensive. Even if the prices were cut in half, I would still have to consider splurging the money...NCL please review and change this. I was looking forward to getting a massage on the cruise, but for almost $ thanks!

-food was not what i was expecting. was not as good as other cruises. Did not have large variety in buffet. The grill food was not fresh, there was no special omelette creations in the morning and there were no midnight buffets. What's up with that? Cruises are all about midnight chocolate buffets!! 

-I thought the two dining restaurants would have different menus so there would be more options, but both had the same menu. 

-Did not have large jewelry options in the shops

-NCL is known for their white hot parties, but if you're expecting it to rain out on the pool deck, then you need to make sure when it's moved inside, it will be twice as grand and crazy. However, i attended the inside white hot party due to the rain, and they did not even move the chairs in the inside lounge. picture this: there was only the crew dancing on the dance floor, and EVERYONE else was just sitting and watching them dance. It was like a lame junior high party.

Hop On, Hop off tour was excellent. We got to see the major highlights of the city, our luggage was in safe keeping, and we got a ride to the airport!
