Review summary

Not worth the cost. The food is the worst of all cruises I have been on. They are able to over charge for this cruise because Norwegian is the only cruise line does this kind of island hop. It is cheaper to island hop on your own.

Service and Staff

Room steward was extremely rude! She did not refill the lotion or change sheets. She was irritated when I requested another lotion. Or when I even told her she didn’t have to make our room up on 2 of the nights since we were just gonna relax.

Cabin / Stateroom

1 out of 5
It was a smaller balcony room. The pull out sofa was hard and a worn out cushion. All of the 10 floor balconies had obstructed views because of support beams between each room. It was supposed to be an upgraded room and ended up being a downgrade because of the walls separating each balcony and the overhang roof above each balcony.

Ship tip

Stay away from the 10th floor balconies. Don’t expect the food to be any good.
