Traveled with children

Family of 4, dh (32), ds (11), dd (9) and myself (32) on our second cruise. First was with Carnival...I didn't want to compare the two lines, but in all honesty, it is very hard not to.

Embarkation/Disembarkation

Fast, easy and efficient. No complaints whatsoever.

Cabin Review

Inside

Cabin IX

Yes, this was an inside room, but wow, I guess I just didn't realize how poorly set up it would be. The pullout bed was fine, but I really wish there would have been two. Instead, there was a cot that they would put in between the two full size beds. My feet dangled from the cot, so I had to take one full size bed, hubby took the other full size and dd took the cot in the middle. So that meant I couldn't sleep beside my husband one night on this cruise. Very upsetting.

Port Reviews

Banana Coast (Trujillo)

An amazing new addition to the itinerary for Norwegian. This was a beautiful port, very friendly locals and the views are breathtaking. It is super hot here, drink lots of water! I would love to come visit this port again.
