Review summary

We did not receive the email that was to inform us of the cancellation of the stirrup cay port visit, we only found out while onboard the second day...we were HIGHLY disappointed by this, as 2 full days in Nassau was NOT what we paid for...had we known this we would have sailed on another line. The premium beverage package when they already offer open bar is a COMPLETE SCAM!!! the security officers were all terrible, very unhappy and treated everyone as if they were a criminal. I couldn't stand any of them. WE WILL NOT BOOK NORWEGIAN AGAIN. MSC has better ships, better service and better staff.

Dealer at the roulette table could not control the game, just let people place bets and take winnings whenever. lots of chips left on the table between spins.

Service and Staff

1 out of 5
Cabin steward was great, most of the other staff was miserable. they seemed like they hated working on the ship and conveyed that to the passengers in their own ways. The security folks especially were awful. the made it seem like you were showing your ID in order to pass from the prison chow hall to your cell. The whole taking your hat off every time they check your ID is stupid also...you don't even have to do that when you enter the county back from an international destination...or to the TSA when they check your ID in order to pass security at an airport.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
mostly clean, but they could do a MUCH BETTER job cleaning the common areas poolside before day break.

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
size was expected. bed was awful. cleanliness was great. Cabin steward was great also

Ship tip

be prepared for a lower class cruise.

Ports of call

Miami, Florida

much more efficient since they built the tunnel

Nassau, Bahamas

2 out of 5
dirty, not nice, typical harassment to buy things from the locals. Urine smell in town pretty much everywhere.

Disembarkation

5 out of 5
Fine...customs was a breeze
