Review summary

Overall a nice cruise, but nothing special about NCL that would entice me to cruise with them again. Received much better service and better food on Holland America.


3 out of 5
Long lines and not enough guidance to point people in right direction.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

2 out of 5
The buffet food was mediocre at best, but the premium restaurants were very good. Drink prices were higher than other cruise lines.

Onboard Activities

Enjoyed the dancers and the comedian.

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
Didn’t meet room steward until the second day, which is unusual compared to all the other cruises I’ve been on. Cabin was kept clean and he did keep us stocked in ice once I requested it. Wait staff again was just okay, they did their jobs but nothing outstanding.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Cabin was a nice size and we enjoyed the room. However, we did not enjoy the noise and vibration when pulling int/out of port. The were also a couple of occasions when exhaust fumes came into the cabin. Will not book an aft facing cabin again.

Ports of call

Port Canaveral, Florida

5 out of 5
We drove to the port, it was very easy to get in/out and there was plenty of covered parking.

Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico

5 out of 5
Enjoyed our excursion to the Mayan ruins very much.


5 out of 5
Very smooth disembarkation, much easier and faster than other cruise ships (though the others were larger).
