Review summary

Lured in by the Free at Sea promotion. Found it to be a great value, but somehow ended up costing more than expected with the add fees. Had a great time though. Gambled on October weather but the Captain sailed the ship around the storms and parked under sunny conditions on sea day. Sailed with Royal in the past, but first cruise with Norwegian was pleasant and would book with them again.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

The Atrium Bar

5 out of 5

The piano player/ musician Andy was the best entertainment on the ship. He needed to be in a larger venue, like the Lounge at the bow of the ship, rather than the karaoke that had very low attendance nightly.

Cagney's Steakhouse

5 out of 5

Very nice dining experience

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
The layout is odd, but it is an older smaller ship. The ship is clean and a fresh updated look. The smoke smell from the casino area was very strong and the Bliss lounge had a musty smell kind of like a gym locker room

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
Clean, comfortable, nice looking room. Port hole window was bigger than anticipated and found it to be my favorite thing about the room. The shower curtain was the least favorite.

Ship tip

You will be taxed on drinks while you are at a U.S. port til 7 miles out to sea, drink package or not. Gets added to your account. Some were surprised by bill at end of cruise from sail away partying

Ports of call

Nassau, Bahamas

5 out of 5
FYI, the water taxi to Paradise Island/ Atlantis required four or more passengers to go. Got tired of waiting for others so ended up taking the taxi car over, water taxi back- which was nice if you have the time to wait

Key West, Florida

5 out of 5
Nice, clean port. Fun and safe to walk around anywhere, and no vendors badgering you. Good ol U.S.A.

Miami, Florida

5 out of 5
Plenty to do. Did the Seaquarium, South Beach, Boardwalk

Disembarkation

5 out of 5
Again, very smooth
