Review summary

Fantastic experience overall. I’d choose NCL again. As a first timer it went great and I’ll sail NCL again (can’t wait). Food was great except at Liberty. Loved Jefferson the best. Loved the pool side area. Only wish you had a 2 week cruise in Hawaii. Most excursions were great. One on Hilo volcanic was poor and North Shore Oahu was cut short (fantastic guide though) State room better than I expected. The staff were mostly fantastic. The guest services need to be better informed as we got bad info a couple times. We loved it and would love to sail NCL again!

Cabin / Stateroom

Bathroom a bit small. Room was very good. Balcony was fantastic! Extra large size. It’s forward so we had a bit more movement, but all together better than I expected.

A bit crowded but glad we signed up for the excursion but wish there was a longer option as our flight didn’t leave till 9:30pm we wish there had been availability to stay a couple more days. Sold out??? Poor planning on NCL
