Norwegian's " freestyle" cruising is in our opinion the best way to enjoy the Mexican Riviera. You don't have to plan your time around structured dining times. Eat when you want, where you want and enjoy their non formal atmosphere. The food was mostly great with a few " hit and misses". The bartenders for the most part were really fun and made the trip even more enjoyable. Service through out the ship was excellent. We enjoyed perfect weather..... We were very surprised by the quality of the 2 shows we attended. We both live in Las Vegas so we are familiar with good quality.....these two were really good for a cruise ship. Having been to the Mexican Riviera many times we did not part take in the shore excursions. But had a blast in each port. This was their last trip down . The ship was 100% full but you never felt crowded.

Cabin Review

Penthouse with Large Balcony
Cabin SF 8632
This is where you want to be....no if's and's or but's about it. Plenty of space...big balcony,
and an incredible view. Never felt any wind in the back even when the rest of the ship was
blowing at times. Left the door open at night and the water put us to sleep.
Great bathroom with Tub and shower enclosed.. Plenty of storage....A great bed.....
To us we felt it was well worth the extra cost. One caution you will walk a lot..
especially when you have to go to the front of the ship.....but we loved it......
And the biggest surprise.....no rocking back n forth.....very steady.....
