We loved our cruise and plan on doing the same one
The ship is beautiful. The cabins were nice with lots of storage. The shower and bathroom was larger and nicer than the Carnival cruises we have taken. Steward service was good. All the employees were helpful and nice. We had a couple of issues that we had to deal with (phone lost at port and fire alarm going off at home) and the staff assisted me in calling to clear things up.
NCL has it together on the embarkation and. Very smooth and quick.
Burn the Floor was fabulous!!! A++. We really like Illusionarium and felt it was worth the extra price. Food was good too. Levity was very funny. We saw Pete's performance and I literally had not heard my husband laugh that hard in our entire 24 years together. The couple of entertainers from Colombia were also great as was Sugar Blue, harmonica player and band. We enjoyed the Latin music in the Tropicana as well.
We are casino people and it was great. Dealers and servers were all top notch. I can see why the openness of the casino to other decks and common space may bother some people however due to smoke.
The food was good. The buffet food was good in the Garden Cafe but it did lack some variety. We ate only breakfast in Taste and Savor but the food was good. O'Sheehans was also a pleasant place to eat with great burgers. Teppanyaki was work the time and price. We ate in the one evening and the food was great. I did feel that the food in Tropicana was good that there needed to be more variety from evening to evening.
We were not impressed with St. Maarten and felt like on a return cruise we would just stay on the ship. We loved St. Thomas and St. John. We want to go to a beach in St. John next time. Nassau was fun too.
