Review summary

Overall, the experience was amazing and I highly recommend Norwegian. Four nights was perfect for a first trip, we were exhausted at the end from all the fun activities.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
The buffets, included, were the best part. There was a woman to spray sanitizer on your way in. Then so many selections and different every day. Everything was fresh and cooled to perfection. We also ate at Cagney's steak House, that was a lovely experience.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
Pools were amazing, not too crowded even at peak times. Salt water pool, that was a first for me and I loved it. The jacuzzis were nice too. The fitness center was bigger than expected and well equipped. The casino was awesome, well staffed and lots of machines. There was also a library, full of great titles and board games that we enjoyed. My kids spent a lot of time in the arcades, there were some great games there.

Entertainment

5 out of 5
We saw a great, family appropriate comedy show. We also enjoyed the pool side entertainment. The crew was so fun.

Children's Programs

My kids stayed with us and didn't participate in the kids programs

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Every single crew member was friendly and polite and helpful. They would go to all stops to answer your questions and get you information. The entire ship was always spotless.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
There was access to everything from everywhere. It was easy to get around using stairs or elevators. Everything was clean. Everywhere, spotless.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
It was tight but we expected that. It was spotless and cleaned daily. We always had everything we needed. I loved how the kids bunk beds came out of the walls, they really utilized space well.

Ship tip

Bring your energy! There's so much to do, come prepared for everything.

Ports of call

Key West, Florida

5 out of 5
We had a long walk but we found the beach and it was worth it. It was beautiful! There were many cool shops along the walk too. And wild life.

Nassau, Bahamas

5 out of 5
We went to exclusive island and did a dolphin encounter. It was certainly exclusive! There were very few others. The dolphin encounter was amazing, a memory made for life. Again we encountered friendly and helpful people everywhere.

Disembarkation

1 out of 5
We foolishly packed our passports before disembarking... We were lucky that the ship was using facial recognition and we made it off. However, getting a bus to the plane took longer than expected and we almost missed our flight. It was very stressful. I had trouble getting the plane tickets to print. Maybe this could be offered on the ship.
