We planned on visiting friends in Gran Canaria so to make the journey from the West coast of Canada worthwhile we thought a cruise would be nice. This is our first cruise with Norwegian and our fifth cruise on five different cruise lines. We found the staff friendly and the food was average to excellent depending on the day and the venue. The entertainment was some of the best I have seen on a cruise. The cabin was clean and well appointed but my wife would have preferred a bath tub (as found on another cruise line in a similar room). My only real disappointment was the gym. Excluding the tread mills and other aerobic equipment, the machines and weights were of home gym quality and in limited quantity. It was small and frankly, the poorest cruise ship gym I have ever used. The absence of a dedicated movie theater was also disappointing..

They offered a great deal for future cruises that we purchased but we will be careful to select a larger ship that better meet our needs. Our overall experience was very good, we had an awesome time and met some great fellow travelers.

The room was clean and well maintained. No issues but a bathtub would be nice.

Port Reviews

Rome (Civitavecchia)

Walked the the beach and learned we would like to return in warmer weather.

Florence (Livorno)

No tour but went to the local fortress and explored it on our own. Very cool and we were the only people there except for the caretaker and his dogs.

Palma de Mallorca (Majorca)

Did the hop on hop off and had a great time and saw more than some who went on the excursions.

Marseille

Due to weather we could not go to Marseille

Valencia

Walked to the Science and arts center. A wondrous place.
