What a great time!

Sail Date: August 2014
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: Miami

Okay... Here's the deal. On any cruise there are going to be things done really well and things that need to be improved. Here are the positives:

Embarkation and Disembarkation - Quick and easy

The room - Stayed in a mini family suite and it was really nice! Ample space for 2 adults and two kids.

Balcony was kinda small but no big deal!

The crew - OUTSTANDING!!!!!!

Entertainment - Saw Legally Blonde, Burn the Floor, and Illusionarium. All were really good!!

The food - Great!

The Ship - Very well laid out and elegant!

Shore excursions - Mirabella Catamaran on St. Marteen and St. John snorkel are a must!!!

The waterslides - Really fun!

The negatives:

Pool area is too small for 3000+ guests!

Atlantis water park shore excursion - This was expensive, not planned well, and NOT worth the money! Getting there was difficult! Not to mention that there was not enough time once you arrived. More Lines were long, food was expensive - Yuck!!! Do yourself a favor; if you want water slides, stay on the ship!!!

Overall:

I would definitely sail NCL again! The ship, crew, food, and destinations were great! Just do yourself a favor and don't bother with the waterpark at Atlantis! Try just the tour or the dolphin experience if you go at all. Much better bang for your buck! Less
