Not the best cruise line
Destination: Western Caribbean
Embarkation: New Orleans
Our stateroom attendant (Budhi) went above and beyond and was EXTREMELY friendly and accommodating!!! The wait staff in the dining rooms (windows and shadows dining area) were very slow and not friendly compared to other cruise lines. My husband and I ate at the Italian restaurant one night and the food was amazing!!! Of course you are paying extra for the service and better food. The buffet breakfast was good. The entertainment (singers/dancers/acrobats) were outstanding!!!! It's obvious they pay more for their performers and going to the shows is well worth it. I never saw anyone cleaning the elevators.... Everyone touches the buttons and after having the captain constantly tell us to wash our hands I felt dirty every time I stepped into the elevator. Other cruise lines you see someone constantly cleaning the elevator buttons and handrails.
Roatan was my favorite port of call because of the NCL'S beach getaway. You board a boat and it takes you to a private island that has a pool, beach, pier, and rescue animal center. It was a great place to go with the whole family and lots of shaded areas to sit close to the water. You could rent snorkel equipment and snorkel right off the pier. Lunch was provided with this excursion. Cozumel was another great port. Lots of shopping and wifi at the local Starbucks.
I won't be booking another NCL cruise. Was disappointed with this cruise line. It seemed the employees were very dissatisfied and overworked. I'd rather pay more in the future to get better service, better tasting food, and not be nickeled and dimmed. Plus if an employee is happy with their job you are going to get better service and a cleaner environment. Less
Cabin review: BA Mid-Ship Balcony
Tiny balcony, bathroom layout good- cleanliness poor (mold/mildew in shower and floors). Nice closet space with adequate shelving for storage. Out dated hair dryer (bring adaptor/converter) hard mattress...bed was very uncomfortable. You can hear your neighbors on both side of your stateroom.Read All Mid-Ship Balcony (BA) Reviews >>
