We had a great trip. But, don't go during college football season!

Sail Date: December 26, 2015

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside


The room was clean.  Friendly staff.  Fun trip! 


The specialty restaurants are great....but, expensive.


The BAD:

Getting off the ship (everything was behind schedule and we had to be out of the room for hours before we could depart the ship.


The buffet food could be better.


The drinks are very expensive and EXTREMELY watered down.



The coffee in the buffet area is HORRIBLE! 


If you are a college football fan, do NOT book this cruise during bowl season.  The workers on the ship are into soccer and will not allow college football to be televised during their games (and soccer is televised all the dang time).


If you want to sleep as a couple in the same bed, they push two twin beds together.  By the middle of the night, the beds came apart and one of us was always in the crack!

Cabin / Stateroom
Hated the bed! If you are a couple that wants to sleep in the same bed, Norwegian pushes two twin beds together. By the middle of the night, the beds separate and one of us was always falling in the dang crack. Other than the bed, we loved our tiny room!

Port Canaveral, Florida
Use Park Port Canaveral service (they were awesome and cheap)
Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico
George Town, Grand Cayman
Ocho Rios, Jamaica
The Jamaican travel folks are horribly uncoordinated. Book you own excursion or expect to spend hours waiting for no apparent reason.
Great Stirrup Cay (Cruiseline Private Island), Bahamas
Take the Marine Eco tour. It was awesome.


Book the earliest time possible to get off the ship (so when they fall behind schedule, you are not stuck for hours like we were).
