This cruise was literally the best two weeks of my life. There is not one bad thing to say about this cruise. Norwegian Cruise Line is amazing. The food was spectacular, the entertainment was amazing. Our rooms (inside and balcony) were excellent. They had plenty of room for our clothes and the beds were extremely comfortable. The views from the balcony were truly amazing and beautiful. Our room stewards always helped with anything and kept the rooms immaculate. The staff were the most friendliest people you will ever encounter in your life. We ate in the Cagneys steak house one night and it was absolutely superb. The ports on this cruise were absolutely amazing.

We visited St Maarten, St Thomas, USVI, San Juan, PR, and Samana, DR. Every port was absolutely stunning. They are the most beautiful places I have been in my entire life. The pool on the ship was excellent, and there was always something to do. In Samana, DR we took the Cayo Leventado beach escape excursion and it More was excellent. It took us to a small island off of DR's Samana, here you can go in the beautiful turquoise blue waters or lay under the palm trees or go shopping. In San Juan we went to Isla Verde Beach which was gorgeous. In Sint Maarten we took the water taxi from the cruise port to Great Bay Beach where the boardwalk is. This was truly spectacular and was our favorite port. In St Thomas we went to Coki Beach which was absolutely stunning. This cruise was the best experience of my life and already have a next cruise on Norwegian booked. Norwegian is AMAZING!!!! Less

Such an amazing island. We took the water taxi from the cruise to Great Bay Beach where the boardwalk is. The water is turquoise blue and so warm and inviting. St Maarten is truly one of the most amazing places on earth.

Amazing! We went to Coki Beach, it was an amazing beach with spectacular water and views. St Thomas is such an amazing place.
