The second week of our back to back cruise saw us getting off the ship in Miami as we had to clear customs (NCL has to declare the ship empty) and then wait to reboard again. As we were VIP's we were taken to a separate area with juice, coffee and cookies available whilst we waited to reboard. The whole process took just over an hour. We were given badges to wear that identified to staff that we were going to be reboarding so the whole process was quick and painless.
We were able to keep the same accommodation for the second week which meant that we did not have to pack and relocate somewhere else on the ship.
The ship was busy but we always managed to find somewhere to sit in the sun if we wanted.
The excellent service we received on the first week of our cruise continued in the second, with every member of staff taking an interest in where you had been that day or what your plans were for dinner etc. Unfortunately the entertainment was repeated each week. A person who we enjoyed listening to in various venues around the ship was Tino. He was an excellent singer and his music seemed to appeal to a large audience, his repetoire was also quite funny.
We did not participate in bingo as it was very expensive and slow. We did participate in the whisky and martini tastings and found them to be fun and good value.
We ate in most of the speciality restaurants and found them to be of excellent value. Our favourites were Teppanyaki, Le Bistro and Lotus Garden. We ate in both Indigo and Summer Palace and enjoyed our meals there also. We enjoyed the wings in the Blue Lagoon but unfortunately the fish and chips were not good.
Overall we had a great holiday. We particularly like NCL for the freedom to dine when we want and with whom we want. We like their STYLE!
