Review summary

Was ok, but probably wont do a short cruise again. Living in Canada its too far to go for 4 nights


3 out of 5
Last year in this terminal for the Jade we were able to schedule an embarkation time. This cruise it was just open at noon which led to long lines. The staff was excellent however.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
Food was good. Buffet was ok but uninspired. Third NCL cruise, third ship, same food. Dining rooms also the same but still good. Tried Cagneys Steakhouse...had an excellent Ribeye but my wife was disappointed in her New York Strip cut; it was cooked well, just wasnt a great cut of beef.

Onboard Activities

3 out of 5
We didn't participate in most onboard activities but what we saw appeared to be fun and interactive with all involved.

Good music on pool deck each day. Good performers in the theatre nightly.

Ship Quality

Older ship with fewer family activities but still good. Refurbished a year ago so still looking good

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
Cabin 10253. Balcony cabin. Sleeps three. Smaller than i was expecting. Think the Oceanview on this ship class was larger. Nice that the bed lamps have USB ports built in.

Ports of call

Freeport, Grand Bahama Island

4 out of 5
Even though Freeport was hit by a hurricane recently they are recovering well. We went to a private beach and it was fine.

Great Stirrup Cay (Cruise Line Private Island), Bahamas

4 out of 5
Was nice but I believe this was one of the first Cruiseline 'private islands'. I enjoyed NCL's island Harvest Caye (Belize) much more as it also had a large pool, and Great Stirrup Caye does not.

Nassau, Bahamas

4 out of 5
Went to the Water Park at Atlantis. Was a fun day.

Disembarkation was the smoothest one yet for us.
