overall was a great trip!  this was my first NCL cruise and I would cruise with them again, we were on the spirit which was a smaller ship, but was nice, we had an issue with our bathroom the first day and a 1/2,   and it took several calls and a trip to the service desk before it was finally resolved,  but NCL sent us a tray of chocolate covered strawberries and a bottle of wine to acknowledged our inconvenience which we appreciated.  I loved the itinerary but did not care too much for having two sea days at the end I'd rather them be at the beginning it just seemed so long at sea to get back to port, my only complaint would be the buffet and the entertainment choices I feel on a 7-night trip they didn't plan it out very well, one night there wasn't much scheduled going on and then the next night there was four things going on at the same time and I found that to be disappointing, All staff we encountered were friendly and helpful except for one lady on the dining staff who was a bit rude, we did not dine in any specialty restaurants  we dined in the garden room and shogun asian fusion and they were both good, the buffet was a bit boring not many changes from day to day and it seemed to be the same thing over and over at lunch time

it was an inside cabin so my expectation wasn't high but wasn't happy about the pole in the center that we had no clue was there till we opened the door, bathroom was adequate liked the fact the shower had a glass enclosure sliding door rather than a curtain which prevented the floor from becoming wet
5 out of 5
recommend resort for a day at the Colonial Hilton well worth it and in walking distance of the ship
5 out of 5
coki point beach was excellent and not to crowded the day we were there
5 out of 5
cane garden bay worth the trip
