I've heard great things about cruises and it was an item on my bucket list which I cleared up many in 2014. However after experiencing booking issues with another cruise line I began to get weary and cancelled the idea of getting a cruise in and was only going to spend my time in Florida.. Thanks to Dana at Cruises not only I was able to get I me a great one with a great value. Still, I wasn't sure what I'd get and after a hiccup got a cool upgrade that enhanced my trip. After getting my bearings about the ship I took right to the joy and relaxation of cruising. NCL has exceptional service and there were so many options to do almost anything. The festivities, going ashore I loved my quick Nassau adventure and Great Stirrup Cay though manufactured made for the perfect beach experience. I had an enjoyable experience with many employees with exception to two but that is a low number in comparison. would look to use Dana at & NCL for my next adventure. Whenever that may be because it isn't likely anytime soon. Thanks for making that bucket list experience awesome.

Ship Quality
could be cleaner but it is an older ship and last renovation was 5 years ago but still it was good
Food and Dining
food was awesome everywhere buffets, resturants and I like the late night snacks the best
Service and Staff
only two employees on the whole ship were negative experiences Jared from South Africa in the exercise room and there was a Croatian bartender/server in the Captains Piano bar that was a hustler in a bad way however the others like the fellow playing the Piano bar made the first night, Yshua seemed liked he was awake 24/7 because he was always there to assist and always involved with super energy. Alex (stunning young lady that spoke the Queens English) was exceptionally hospitable and charming, Cornell in the Spa, the massage therapist, Drew the cruise director were just a few of the wonderful staff I enjoyed.
I most enjoyed (I can't believe I can't recall his name) but he played the Piano bar every night. I could watch him once but his stitk was the same so I could only really watch him one night but it was a great icebreaker on the first night
Onboard Activities
Destinations and Excursions
Cabin / Stateroom The Steward was awesome and super nice
Miami, Florida
Joe's Stone Crabs are a must see but didn't spend anytime in Miami except for getting to Joe's
Nassau, Bahamas
found a great cab driver name Michael (can't find his info at the moment and have no time) who gave me a private and personal tour of the island and I told him I'd be his favorite tourist because I take no time anywhere I can check things out and I don't linger except at the rum distillery and I even breezed through that tour
Great Stirrup Cay (Cruiseline Private Island), Bahamas
Though manufactured it truly was a great beach experience and the most relaxing of the whole trip. the place was perfect. The Croatian server was working the lounge chairs but he stayed away from me because I called him out on being a hustler the day before. I would suggest having a guided deep sea diving experience there instead of Nassau


I wish I had time
