Found that this cruise was an excellent value for the cost of the cruise.

My wife and I have cruised numerous times on Celebrity Cruises so we did have a benchmark to compare.  We found that the atmosphere was enjoyable, the Freestyle is a great idea.  We felt that the quality of the meals was below that of Celebrity's but acceptable.  The cabin was clean and comfortable and the attendant was conscientious.  We felt that the entertainment was good and the service although not, once again, that of Celebrity's, the staff tried hard but didn't seem to have the same experience or professionalism.  Having said this, we really enjoyed the cruise and need to remember that the cost here is much less than it was while cruising Celebrity. 

In summary, great cruise and we will definitely go again with NCL.

Cabin / Stateroom
clean, well maintained by very pleasent attendant
Embarkation and Disembarkation long lines/wait times for least an hour's wait in a hot queue with no water or any refreshments offered....
Ship Quality
Destinations and Excursions
Big time disappointment. Went to the Blue Lagoon and it was a complete waste of money.
Wish we walked to any of the beaches instead as there was nothing at the Blue Lagoon. NCL should review and not offer.
