TRUE FAMILY REVIEW
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
The reviews about the cabins are correct. They are tiny and with the sofa bed pulled out its terrible. We survived. It would be just fine if we didn't have our kids with us. We got a thermal suite spa pass and used it daily. Our room was on deck 14 right between the Splash Academy and spa, so we would drop the kids off just a few feet from our room then walk a few feet to the spa....it was perfect!
I really want to touch on how awesome this ship was for my kids. They are 5 and 8. They loved the splash academy and we loved our adult time while they were there! There are several family game shows throughout the week put on by the splash team and were a lot of fun. Team Nick was excellent. We got to attend the slime time live show and slime time by the pool. They were so much fun. We also went to the Nick craft time where we colored a spongebob shirt and bandana. We got to meet Patrick and spongebob!
The kids loved loved loved the Blue Man group and so did we! We went to the Cirque dinner show. Get the premium seats. It was better than expected and the food was fabulous. Don't miss it! The pool was great for my 5 year old. One of them has a large platform with benches on it that is only covered by a foot or so of water, so he loved playing there. There are also lots of sprayers that shoot out water and that was fun for them. my 8 year old love the slides. We had them wear their suits when we boarded, so as soon as we got on and ate lunch they swam. She rode the slide several times with no wait. On the sports deck, there is a bungee trampoline and a tall climbing thing with a big slide, all free!!
We go to the port at about 10:30 and were boarded by 11:30 and were some of the first people on board. We went straight to the spa to get our pass then to lunch with no wait! Getting off was easy as well.
Over all, this was our favorite cruise!! If you are a bitter person who expects not to wait for anything and the world revolves around you, you might not like this ship. But, if you are a laid back, easy going person who likes to have fun and doesn't mind waiting less than 5 mins for something, you will love it!!! Less
Cabin review: 14043
It was very small and with the sofa bed pulled out, almost impossible. Would be fine for just 2 adults, but was a little much with 2 kids.
First Cruise Thoughts
We love NCL overall and the Ep...
Haven spoiled us for cruising
