Review Summary

This was my first cruise on NCL (my wife's fourth). The food was the biggest disappointment. To get better quality food there were Cover Charges at all the ship's "specialty" restaurants.

Ship Experiences

Food and Dining

1 out of 5
Food was boring. The Italian selections (esp. eggplant parmesan) and American (turkey with dressing and gravy) were tasteless. We discovered the majority of the ship's chefs were Filipino or of other Asian descent so it was not hard to understand their unfamiliarity with other types of cuisine.

Ports Of Call

Belize City, Belize

3 out of 5
Had fairly nice time on the snorkeling tour, although the water was pretty choppy so was not clear to see the coral, etc. and there were high winds so we only had a short time for snorkeling. Again, were confined to the small pier area and unable to venture out in the city.

Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico

3 out of 5
We were pretty confined to the pier area so didn't see much of the city.

Cozumel, Mexico

3 out of 5
We were able to see more of the town than any of the other ports so was much more enjoyable.

Coxen Hole, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras

1 out of 5
Took the island tour and was pretty disappointed. Not sure why this port is on the itinerary.

Pros: Staff

Cons: Food

Recommends Norwegian Spirit? No.
