Free Style-Not my style

Sail Date: November 2013
Destination: Western Caribbean
Embarkation: Miami

Second cruise for my wife and I. First with Norwegian. The ship is nice. The staff friendly and polite. Clean. Food was OK. Travelled Celebrity in prior cruise and found the selection and quality superior in everyway

I am a quality not quantity person, as is my wife. We prefer seated meals with service. Did not try the buffet for any meal. Utilized the rear deck for breakfast a few times. Adequate. Dining in was predictable and OK. The menu is limited and OK. This Freestyle concept seems to mean feel free to wait in line for everything. Getting on, Getting off. Getting fed. I preferred the Celebrity organized agenda. The ship was a little too casual for our preference. I don't really want to see people in the same attire all day at the buffet and then out at the shows. It makes the cruise experience less enjoyable. Somehow cheapens the feel.

Couldn't enter review to private island. The weather was too rough for tendering....so cancelled. Less

Port and Shore Excursions


Went to Paradise Beach in a cab for 15 bucks. Was nice.
Read 3145 Cozumel Reviews

Went to Seven Mile Beach in a cab. Nice Beach. Bad weather. Shuttling to shore is time consuming. Another example of feel free to line-up.


Dunn's River Falls

Took Kayak adventure to Fall's. About 100 metre paddle. Have seen the Fall's before. Was hoping for Kayaking. Didn't deliver. Jamaica is a sketchy joint with too many beggars and dope dealers
