Great time on Norwegian

Sail Date: December 2012
Destination: Western Caribbean
Embarkation: New Orleans

We left out of New Orleans for the Western Caribbean and had a wonderful time. This was only our 2ND cruise but it was superb. There were a few minor problems but were far outweighed by the masterful service and plentiful food.

Second City was excellent entertainment. We never had to wait more than 10 minutes for table service and the only issue we had with meals was the lack of dessert choices. The hot tubs were a little less than hot but never crowded and plenty of pool chairs. Service was always there. It seemed they always knew when the room needed tidying. Embarkation and disembarkation was smooth at every port. The boat although not the newest was in an excellent state of repair we did not see any issues. We will more than happy to sail with them again and are already looking for our next date to sail with them.

Costa Maya I could have passed on. If you are in Belize make sure you stop by Dans Chocolate Bar my wife says the chocolate shots with More edible glasses were to die for. Roatan was just beautiful and the Pirates zip lining was great. Cozumel had cheap beer and great shopping although they could be a little pushy. Overall it was a great time. Less

Cabin review: OX8562 Obstructed Oceanview

It was supposed to be 90% obstructed view was only 10 so that was great. However there was a light on outside at all times. The curtains kept it out though. I thought it was plenty big enough for the 2 of us. As my wife stated in the newlywed not so newlywed game the shower was plenty big enough for 2 to "exercise". It was clean and comfortable.

Past the tourist village was just dirty. I highly recommend Dan's Chocolate Bar.

Seemed like a tourist trap.
