Small Ship, But Good Cruise

Sail Date: December 26, 2015

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Balcony

 We had a great time. However, there are some things that were not so amazing because the ship is the oldest and smallest of the NCL fleet. For example, there was a lot more smoking than one would want, there were not a lot of different areas at night for varying types of entertainment, the engine was loud and shaky and palpable from the Windows Dining Room, and overall there were just not that many different spaces. On the flip side, because it was an older ship, while it did not have the new amenities like water slides or a ropes course (like the Breakaway and other newer ships, it did have a very nice promenade, and a fantastic lounge called Galaxy of the Stars. This is a great place to catch a game show or even just lounge during the day while looking out on the ocean!

Cabin / Stateroom
The room wasn't bad, but the bathroom just like the NCL Dawn ), was in strange little compartments. There was enough room for three of us though and plenty of storage space.

Ship Quality
Destinations and Excursions

Pretty good, but not a lot of options for music at night.
Service and Staff
Most of the staff was AMAZING!!! Gio, the cruise director was not so much though.
Food and Dining
Pretty good, but got to be a little bit too much of the same.
Port Canaveral, Florida
Look for NASA Vehicle Assembly Building out in the distance while leaving the dock!
Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico
Plenty right at the port or by taking trolley to the town
George Town, Grand Cayman
Go to Sting Ray City and see the animals!!!
Ocho Rios, Jamaica
Great Stirrup Cay (Cruiseline Private Island), Bahamas
Wonderful island, just make sure you know what times they are serving lunch!


It is a small ship, so take advantage of every spot you can find. I love reading in the Galaxy of the Stars and just looking out the windows and at the bridge.
