Fodd was good and plentiful. The entertainment was superb. Embarkation was a breeze. Ken the cruise director was fantastic, always directing a fun time for all on the cruise. Scott, his assistant cruise director, was high energy and a quick wit. I know that this cruise to Canada and New England would be great as Kevin Sheehan, the CEO for Norwegian, was on the cruise with his wife and daughter on vacation.
Where to begin. The entertainment.
Rosie, of Fire and Ice, is a tremendous singer, doing reviews of Tina Turner, MoTown, Michael Jackson and Soul Train. What a voice.
David Naster, is a veteran comedian, with many laughs and some profound insights.
Modal Magic-great singers and music.
Incanto-what great acrobats. Manniso and Alessia.
The NCL singers and dancers-what great shows and also great acrobats especially at the last night's show, Le Cirque Bijou.
Kenny Byrd a great ventroloquist.
Harry O'Donoghue a great Irish story teller, comedian and More singer.
The happy action was on the ship, the ports in Canada and New England were so-so Less

Cabin review: Inside

Room 8007 was a tiny inside cabin, quiet locaton. We paid cheap and got what we paid for. No complaints but no view.

Port and Shore Excursions

A vibrant city. Again, you can walk around the city without the use of the expensive pink bus. A lot of shops. No excursions done.

A nice city. Take the city bus 8A from the docks to the center of town where the many small shops are. Go to the Spotted Pig bar for an inexpensive beer

A quiet town. Good shopping. You can walk to and around the mall. Did not take any excursions.
