Best Experiment Ever!
Destination: Western Caribbean
Embarkation: New Orleans
Having just sailed on the relatively new DREAM the difference was night and day. The Elation was comfortable and the prefect size to run into new friends over and over again. The ports were repeats for us so we either stayed on board or went into town to shop and have lunch. Love the Serenity deck - this is the first ship that I have sailed on where I was able to get a chair without having to get on deck before 8am. The atmosphere was much more relaxing - a true vacation! If you are looking for true relaxation without the stress of large crowded ships and ports (isn't that why we take vacation anyway) - this is the perfect ship! Things went so well that we replaced a booking in September on a "monster" ship with the Liberty -- our next experiment! Less
Cabin review: 5AM3
M3 port hole, ample closet space for 2 adults, bathroom was decent size, very quiet except when securing in port - the rope system was directly above our cabin but we were always up and ready to disembark.

Awesome week on the Norwegian ...
Crowded and noisy!
