Loved everything about the cruise. The layout of the ship was nice, the food was great, the route was awesome! Embarkation took less than 10 minutes! Had lunch in the dining room, delicious. Room location - 10th floor forward - close to everything. Samana - Cayo Levantado offered through NCL. Gorgeous beach & great swimming. Tortola, BVI - Jost VanDyke offered through NCL. HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT - awesome! St John's - Beach Escape offered through NCL. Lunch included, ok beach.

Barbados - Scenic Barbados Tour. Nice tour and then brought to a private resort for use of the beach & loung chair.

St Kitts - Tour, lunch & beach massage with Captain Sunshine (Kenny). He's great. Felt very comfortable with him, the massage on the beach was really nice. Very accomodating and reasonably priced. www.stkittscaptainsunshine.com

The entertainment on the ship: Magician: just ok. Comedian: just ok. Dancers: very good. Jose & Patti: Hands down the VERY best we've ever seen. Went to their show every night, get there early or it's standing room only.

The vacation went very quickly. We loved everything! Can't wait to do this one again.

Cabin review: Inside

Plenty of room for the two of us. Would have been enough room for 3 too. Quiet hallway and located close to everything.

Tour with Scenic Barbados Tour - they did a great job. Got to see a lot and then brought to a private resort for use of their lounge chairs and beach.

Jost Van Dyke offered thru NCL. Almost an hour catamaran ride and then swimming to the beach for a drink at the Soggy Dollar. Beach chairs were provided. The beach and water are breath taking. HIGHLY recommend this tour.
