Review summary

We will cruise again, but not with this cruise line. Hidden fees, $5.00 bottles of water and they wouldn’t let u bring your own. They nickel and dime you to DEATH. We’re trying royal Caribbean next time. Don’t waste your time or money here

Embarkation

2 out of 5
It was crowded with inadequate space for all the passengers waiting to get on. A NCL employee came to the head of the line and was yelling at passengers.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

1 out of 5
We didn’t buy the upgraded food pkg, but wished we had. Food was institutional and bland. Cheapest possible selections and inadequately chilled at times. A lot of the other passengers were making comments about the nasty food as well. I couldn’t wait to get off the ship so we could go to a restaurant and eat!

Palace Main Dining Room

3 out of 5

One of the only places to get decent food, even if the portions were tiny. My fiancée side of corn and slaw came in condiment cups. One spoonful of each. I’m not kidding

Onboard Activities

3 out of 5
The pool was crowded and small, but the drink servers were there and doing a great job. Not much to do really. The casino was decent

Entertainment

3 out of 5
Mediocre and kind of hokey. At each event only a handful of people attended

Children's Programs

No kids

Service and Staff

4 out of 5
The room attendant did her job very well. The hall smelled of vomit the entire trip. She tried to clean it up but was unable to.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
Common areas were ok. Average

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
It was super tiny, but we paid for cheap and that’s what we got. Two single beds shoved together to make a queen. I awoke each morning in the valley between the two.

Ship tip

Buy the upgraded food pkg or you’ll starve.they also gouge for bottled water

Ports of call

Miami, Florida

3 out of 5

Key West, Florida

4 out of 5
Crowded, but the butterfly conservatory was worth the walk

Nassau, Bahamas

3 out of 5
We rented scooters and toured the island. The area just outside the port was dirty and smelled... the locals were rude, lazy and acted resentful of tourists presence

Great Stirrup Cay (Cruise Line Private Island), Bahamas

1 out of 5
A small section of a private island shared by multiple cruise lines. Tall prison like walls marked each cruise lines “area”. Lots of lounge chairs shoved into the sand a foot apart. Not really much to see or do. We got there at 11:00 and NOTHING was set up or ready. Couldn’t even get a drink of water. We left and went back to the ship

Disembarkation

3 out of 5
Actually went fairly smoothly and quickly
