Review summary

Really enjoyed the cruise overall. We didn’t make it to Cuba as planned but were redirected to the Bahamas. We were able to spend 2 days there and it was nice. Norwegian was good to us even though it was out of their control. Appreciated the 50% off the cruise and a future cruise. I will cruise Norwegian again.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

Only used the Main dining room and buffet. Food and service was excellent. Didn’t realize when I booked the cruise that drinks were unlimited. Definitely a nice surprise

Four Seasons Dining Room

5 out of 5

Service and food was wonderful

Topsiders Bar and Grill

4 out of 5

Sometimes there were not enough bartenders so service was slow. I think it is better to use the ship staff to get the drinks

Great Outdoors Cafe

4 out of 5

Food was basically hamburgers and hotdogs. Quick place to get a bite to eat

Onboard Activities

3 out of 5
I was disappointed because the ship did not offer many shows in the theater. The few that they had were only 1 show per night and not 2. There was only 1 comedian on the ship and he did 2 shows. More people attended the comedian than anything else. Pools and hot tubs were nice.

Sun Club Casino

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Didn’t care for the buffet line set up and you had to walk through the Bliss lounge to get to the back of the ship. We were constantly sprayed to keep our hands clean so cleanliness was important to the cruise line

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Nice cabin. Quiet and good location

Ship tip
