Review summary

Norwegian, did an awful job. There were people on the cruise who paid 250....as a person who had cuba cancelled...the original cruisers, who chose to sail with them, we should have been given dining experiences or something. The staff did not look at you if you didn't tip them immediately(I put it on my prior purchase), getting off on a tinder took almost your whole time that we were at the island. Overall, disappointing, frustrating and unhappy. The food was ok, the bathrooms on the ship by day 2, weren't flushing, had no toilet paper, etc.

Service and Staff

***OUR ROOM Steward was amazing...his name was mike...however everyone else, wouldn't want to make eye contact, perhaps for fear of having to interact with us.

Ship Quality

2 out of 5
All of the buffets were on the back of the ship...then there were limited seats, as parents of teenagers didn't seem to have much control of their kids & there wasn't much staff controlling anything. 8-9 kids in the hot tubs, ordering non alcoholic drinks etc...

Cabin / Stateroom

Ship tip

Don't GO....the private island is awful, dirty and full of flies, for pizza/ burgers and hot dogs...save the day and stay on the ship, you'll wait for over 3 hours to get off the ship

Ports of call

Key West, Florida

I love key west..This was rushed and just basic, it was a sprint to all places

Great Stirrup Cay (Cruise Line Private Island), Bahamas

1 out of 5
Food grose, took 3 hours to get off ship. No seats, they wanted you to purchase private cabanas etc

Nassau, Bahamas

1 out of 5
Dirty, people trying to give you water, give you tickets for excursions. Did a dolphin excursion. They transported us on a flimsy boat and packed us on like sardines. Then at the island, Barlmoral, overpriced and just a money making scam
