Review summary

Norwegian should offer passengers compensation for the missed day in Stirrup Cay and so far they are only offering refund of the port fee. What a joke.

Our embarkation experience was good. However, we had to wait an hour to get into our rooms.

Ship Quality

The ship is older and small. Not as many amenities as some of the newer ships.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
There was only one night stand in the room and it was not on the side with the outlet. Fortunately we had an extension cord for the CPAP but we had to sit it on the love seat instead of the night stand.

Ship tip

It is small ship with a small pool and jacuzzi area. When we were not able to get off the ship in the Bahamas, it was too crowded on the poor deck to really enjoy the pool or the jacuzzi.

Ports of call

Miami, Florida

South beach was awesome.

It was an honor and a privilege to visit Cuba. The tour of the Cigar factory was eye-opening and just being able to set foot in the country was incredible.

Great Stirrup Cay (Cruise Line Private Island), Bahamas Did not visit port

The ship was not able to go to this port due to an oil spill that occurred in Cuba.
