What a nice cruise!

Sail Date: March 08, 2015

Reviewed: 2 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

I travelled with my husband and 2 of his sisters.  We had cabins that were close together.  The cabin stewards were friendly and attentive, the food was great in the buffet as well as the main dining rooms, and the weather couldn't have been nicer!  We enjoyed getting to know the ladies who worked in the jewelry store onboard;  they went far and beyond our expectations to ask how our day was going, and seemed always genuinely happy to see us!  A big shout out to Michelle, Michele, and Inis!  We love you gals!  Our cabins were nice and quiet, and the ports were very fun and informative.  My 2 sister-in-laws especially enjoyed being pulled around by the dolphins in Cozumel during their excursion.  Embarkation was fast and easy as was debarkation.  We carried our own bags off the ship.  I really have no complaints.  The staff seemed happier than on other cruise lines.  This was our second NCL cruise, and it won't be our last.

Ship Quality
This ship was older, but everything was spotless!
Food and Dining
We thought the food was fabulous everywhere we dined.
Service and Staff
Michele, Michelle, and Inis (and Alberto and Dayne) were especially knowledgeable and kind in the jewelry store and surrounding areas. We left friends!!
I went to the general time (family) comedy show and it was identical to the one we had seen a year prior.
Children's Programs Didn't need them.
Onboard Activities
The trivia games were fine, but the staff seemed bored doing them.
Destinations and Excursions
Our friends did 1 tour through NCL and it was great but pricey. We chose to do 4 private tours that weren't through NCL. They were cheaper and better, I hate to say.
Cabin / Stateroom
Perfect for the 2 of us. Nice and clean, and the mattress was very comfortable. No sagging!
Roatan (Isla Roatan), Bay Islands, Honduras
We toured the rain forrest and went to the beach through a private tour. Wonderful
Belize City, Belize
We toured Alton Ha and went to a gorgeous beach! Beautiful. It was a private tour.
Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico
We toured Chaccoben ruins and went to a private lagoon and restaurant! Lovely prvate tour. Found on line through
Cozumel, Mexico
Private tour found on Tequilla factory, Gorgeous beach, Water park on beach. Mexico museum. Perfect!!!!


Take your time to get to know the ship. Although it was on the small side, we had an especially hard time finding our way around, because it was laid out oddly. Our cabin was on 6a, and we had to ask for help finding it. Generally we had to walk through bars, etc. to get to where we needed to go.
