Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

Our fav part of this cruise was the stop at Great Stirrup Cay and the awesome lunch provided there. It was a BBQ and the food was great.


One port that could have been skipped was Nassau. This place is disgusting -- stinky, dangerous and every vendor is hawking you for something. It's like being fed to the wolves. If your ship stops here, do yourself a favor and chose to relax by the pool rather than going ashore.

Cabin / Stateroom
A lot smaller than inside cabins on other cruise lines. If we ever sail again on Norwegian, we will have to upgrade. We had to go out in the hallway to change our minds. ;p
Embarkation and Disembarkation
We were disappointed that they made us check our luggage. We were hoping to just take it onboard with us so that we had our swimsuits when we boarded. Too bad we didn't think far enough ahead to remove them from our bags before they rushed us through checking them.
Ship Quality
It was fine. I liked that they had someone spraying disinfectant on your hands when you walked into the buffet area.
Destinations and Excursions
Two days at Great Stirrup Cay rather than only one with a stop following in Nassau.
Onboard Activities
Unfortunately, we didn't partake in any of the activities but heard they were great. This was a relaxation trip for us.
Children's Programs
Had no children with us, therefore have no experience.
Service and Staff
It would have been nice is our cabin attendant would have introduced himself.
Food and Dining
Miami, Florida
Great Stirrup Cay (Cruiseline Private Island), Bahamas
Take the first tender from the ship to the island and grab some beach chairs. The bulk of the people didn't show until around lunch time which was when we had enough sun and were ready to head back to the ship.
Nassau, Bahamas
