The ship had enough to do to keep us entertained when we were at sea, I especially liked the mini golf course… Gym was well equipped and it was great having a trainer on-hand who held regular classes.

I went to the ship's gym, which had an excellent selection of free weights, treadmills, ellipticals, exercise bikes, and strength machines. The NCL gym was the better of the gyms I visited on my three cruise experiences.
