I chose this cruise mostly because of the dates of sailing and the location. I heard/read good reviews for NCL, but this specific ship did not live up to my expectations. The food was not great, mediocre at best. The entertainment was also pretty bad. The main entertainment-dancers, singers and comedian that were chosen for the nightly shows were not nearly as good as the performers you could find in the smaller bars/atrium. We mostly hung out in the Windjammer Bar because that was where the true talent on the ship was. The stateroom attendants never once introduced themselves to us, although they were in and out of our rooms constantly throughout the day. On other cruiselines you know who your attendants are. We did have one good, more personable waiter in the dining room, so that was nice. But most of the staff on the ship was not personable and did not make us feel welcome or "at home" like other cruises did in the past. The customer service just was nowhere near the level that I would have expected it to be. There weren't a whole lot of great activities to do, which didn't bother me during the day but at night it could get boring when there isn't much going on--especially since the main stage shows were lower quality.

We did the 5 day. October 12-17. We ended up with two sea days because of hurricane damage to Grand Bahamas. Room 9271- great room great steward. No complaints at all!! Food- The buffets were hit or miss. A lot of the same food every day, Ate a few hot dog lunches. Dinners were very good. Service in the two main restaurants really depends on your server. One night was great the other was very slow. Upcharge restaurants- we did Cagney's and the Brazilian steak house. Both were excellent. Entertainment- of the 5 nights two were given to a comedian. Comedy is very subjective so it was not something we enjoyed. The two stage shows were ok. They are like a good high school musical. Not a lot to do on the ship at night. Over all NCL needs for staff. They give out the drink package and there are not enough servers or bartenders. Lines in the buffet for breakfast and lunch are too long. Great stirrup cay was a nice stop. We wish they would have taken us there twice instead of 2 sea days, Kayak excursion was great. Food on the island was very good. Not enough bars or bartenders. The main beach needs way more sand put on the beach, The rocks and the concrete under the water was painful. Wish I had brought underwater shoes. We still had a great time, NCL is turning into Carnival with a lot of drinking and the drunk groups on board. Lifeguards had to call security to the pool a few times. Read Less

Fantastic service, food and room was plenty spacious for my husband’s scooter. Fully handicapped accessible. Well laid out. Tons of storage space throughout closet and vanity. Nice living room area away from the bed with comfortable sofa and chair seating with a sturdy table. Room close to elevators. Room steward decorated for my birthday and the front desk provided a voucher for a free cake. Took it to the dining room and they allowed us to take it to the cabin after dinner that night. The shows were well done. Pool service stewards were friendly, attentive and courteous. Many activities options-not bombarded constantly with boring art auctions. Cruise Director Lutz has the perfect personality for her job. She is friendly outside of her “stage” performance and announcements. She was enthusiastic about her job. Thank you! Two afternoon movies were shown and a couple of late night movies between the Bliss lounge and Stardust Theater. Ship was well decorated and maintained. Very clean. This was our second trip on this ship and we’ve had a great experience both times! Read Less
