Love this cruise line, especially the food and staff! Every port gave me a great experience. The perks from Norwegian are a great incentive for loyal customers. Can't wait to plan our next one!

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
Loved the exquisite taste of the food! The specialty restaurants offered great quality meals and all our group, 7 adults, cleaned our plates! The buffet was delightfully full of variety throughout the cruise, was not boring or tasteless. All the wait staff at both the restaurants and buffet were very friendly and professional.

Onboard Activities

I'm glad there was a variety of activities for all ages and we're all optional. We especially enjoyed the Sing it to win it, my sister had a blast!

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Loved the Samurai look at the Shogun restaurant. The lobby and grand staircase made me forget I was on a ship, as if I was in a high end hotel! All was clean and if anything needed maintenance, the staff was already taking care of it.

Cabin / Stateroom

Loved the bed and bedding. Everything worked properly and if it didn't, we were made aware and was fixed immediately. Authoreen always kept it very clean!
