  • Sail Date: Dec 2016
  • Destination: the Panama Canal & Central America
  • Cabin Type: Oceanview Picture Window

The crew were great. The food was very good in the dining room and buffet. The food was over the top in the specialty restaurants although the Teppenyaki was a bit noisy when the food was being prepared. Particularly enjoyed La Bistro. The entertainment was very good and the ship has a nice variety of public areas. The ship is very comfortable. The ports of call were generally good but I would have rather seen Acapulco skipped in favor of a different port in Mexico. The cabin was nice and quiet and I liked the sliding door on the shower rather than the usual shower curtain that allows water to flood the floor. If you are interested in a formal type cruise and ship this is not the venue for you. Everything is pretty relaxed. The Garden Buffet offered some interesting selections of Indian and Asian food and a nice selection overall. I will definitely consider Norwegian when scheduling another cruise.

Very interesting port. The old city is worth a visit.
