Just returned on 9-7-02 and was very pleased. The ship has so many balcony rooms that the decks were never crowded. If you can get a balcony room, it is definitely worth it. We are now very spoiled. The rooms are large and very well laid out as far as storage. Freestyling is great. Never were the restaurants crowded and the food was good. We never felt the need for the specialty restaurants other than Pacific Heights which had no cover charge. Enjoyed Roatan and Belize a great deal, especially Roatan. If you go on the Yacht tour make sure that you give yourself time to shop in the West End. The prices and selection were great. If you're looking for hammocks, this is the place to go. We came home with 2. Took the Ruins tour in Belize and was very pleased. Be prepared for it to be very hot.Embarkation and disembarkation were a breeze. Norwegion has their act together here. This was my 10th cruise and the best organized in this area.The only negative point that I can make is the casino. The slot machines are set up to where you easily lose $20 in five minutes without evern getting a quarter back. We found them paying out a little between 8:30PM and 10:00PM each night when the casino was most crowded. Any other time, you were dumping in your money with no return.
