I would love to share pictures but since the Wi-Fi was so expensive we didn’t take too many because we couldn’t share them on social media without being charged those ridiculous rates.

Our room 5522 was directly below a crew storage room which was used quite a bit on he last 2 days if the trip. Very noisy late at night and early in the morning

Ship tip

Check trip advisor for shore excursions before booking with the ship. Norwegian charged $159 for zip lining in Mazatlan, but 3 weeks earlier I paid $50 for the same activity at the same location.
