Review summary

This was our first trip on Norwegian and a first cruise of this length. The ship itself is nice, apparently recently refurbished. Dining was a pleasant surprise with many choices and the cuisine was varied and delicious. It was nice to have the option to be less formally dressed given we were traveling with our children. My older children took advantage of some of the teen center activities but my youngest at 9 was not impressed with the activities for his age group. In all fairness, he has never been a fan of the kids activities. The ports of call were beautiful and safe with a nice variety of things to do. In particular, we took a tour to the Chacchoben ruins with a side trip to a local restaurant and a lagoon for swimming that was both fun and informative. (Native Choice Tours) The walk to the office to go on this tour was a bit adventurous, but the warmth of the guides more than made up for this. The entertainment on board was very good, including Yuri the strongman and the aerialist team from Russia. The final show, Paradis, which included both of these acts and the regular production crew was outstanding. The comedian Fred Beville and hypnotist TerranceB were both great too. Really no complaints besides the somewhat spotty service ( had 2 rooms with different stewards so could compare, and the fact that certain things showed up late in the cruise like the cushions on the deck chairs)
