We knew what to expect from NCL and they delivered.  This is the first time that we ever had the Ultimate Drink Package or some Specialty Dining and we enjoyed those features more than we expected to. The ship was nice, the staff was friendly, and the shows were pretty good.  With open seating dining we find that we don't meet as many people and form as many friendships as on cruises with prescribed dining.  We think that it is nice and comfortable not to have to get overly dressed up, to stay casual but we did partially miss the opportunity to flaunt a bit. This was an enjoyable cruise.

Cabin / Stateroom
We were well-taken care of and we had sufficient room for our belongings. The layout was easy to navigate.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Quick and easy
Ship Quality
Destinations and Excursions
As cruise veterans, we had been to two of the ports previously. Tortola was a new treat.
Onboard Activities
Pretty basic cruise activities. We enjoyed some trivia, the fitness center.
The comedian was funny, the magician had a cute personality.
Service and Staff
We loved Guill in Henry's Pub. He was an accomplished bartender with an endearing personality. Kudos, too, to Gary in Le Bistro.
Food and Dining
Good options. We enjoyed the Specialty Dining but probably would not have paid extra for it.


For the main dining rooms, it is sometimes hard to actually 'dine when you want'. During peak periods there is a bit of a wait unless you make a reservation very early in the day. Be sure to put your name in to win Dinner With An Officer. I won!
