We left from NYC in April and it was still quite cool weather, so keep in mind the time of year you leave, cause this takes away from your 7 day cruising, we were stuck inside cause of cool weather leaving and returning. Beautiful clean ship, with bright bold colors, lots of bathroom located around the ship. Shows: JP the comedian/magician was great. Spa: did not use this facility, too pricey Gym: so so nothing great. Pools: 2 available, 1 for adults only, salty pool, and 1 for kids Resto: We booked Cagney's and Tappanayaki each $25.00/person Cagney's great steakhouse and Tappanayaki, great show, food was a little salty. Azzurra, very good food, no REZ needed, different menu every night. TSAR: big ballroom style, No REZ needed, good food, a little salty, We also had brought our own bottles of wine, they didn't give us any trouble, some we paid corkage fees for and some we didn't. $15.00/bottle. Garden cafe: breakfast place, lots of variety Drinks/Beverage: you could buy buckets of 6 beer ~$20.00, try the drink of the day, every day there's a special drink. "Rebelious" so good. Duty Free: boring, those need to be upgraded. They should also upgrade to being able to see your expenses on the TV, like Carnival, but you can always swing by the front desk & they will print up a copy for you. *** Iron available just call concierge and they will bring it to you and pick up later on Parking: we left our car in the "Manhattan Cruise" parking lot for a price of $35.00/day, it can be quite pricey, but you are right next to the pier.

Private Island that belongs to Norwegian Tendered boats to island A free BBQ lunch on the beach, very good food drinks you had to buy, all goes on your key card Still working on improving the island
We took a cab $4.00/person each way to the Atlantis and spent the day there. $69.00/person included a lunch, no chairs on beach that was $2.00 Beautiful resort, very big, shops too. On the way back took some time to do souvenir shopping just outside the port.
