Our first cruise as a family during the Thanksgiving week exceeded our expectations. If you like a relaxed atmosphere without having to dress in a tux for dinner then this might meet your needs. We had some concerns about the open bar but we did not see any overtly drunk people or people puking or people fighting. It was just one big floating party where everyone had a great time. There was a poolside BBQ every day and so many different places to grab a drink or snack. We enjoyed all the various shows that were offered in the evenings. Especially one guitarist, Jeff, who was not only very talented but had some great deadpan jokes. The buffet sort of reminded me of Golden Corral but with "washy-washy" girls. The included sit down dinner was a 3 course affair that was really really good. Venus made dinner every evening great! We would specifically request her. Wilfred kept the drinks flowing. Philbert was our housekeeper and he was spot on good. About the only negative was that the weather was too windy for the tenders to transport people to stirrup cay so we did not get to see the renovations. This was a safety issue and not the fault of NCL. We had a great time as a family and would do this trip again.

Cabin Review

Family Inside
Cabin I1 1605
We got connecting rooms and they were more than adequate. I mean you are on a ship and as long as the shower had hot water and toilet flushed we were happy.
