This was a 60th birthday gift to my husband who had been on several cruises in his past. This was my first and after a shaky start it just got better each day. We had a fun time. I loved getting the itineray magazine each day so we could try new activities out. I really enjoyed the "pampered ladies" seminar. I learned alot about my skin and bought a few of the products and love them.The crew was excellent, the food delicious and the entertainment was great! The ports we visited were nice but Rockland was not a favorite. My favorite place on the ship was the Grand Pacific Dining Room, it was so beautiful and the staff was amazing! We ate almost all our meals there. The staff made every meal so enjoyable and their dinner recommendations were always right on. We are all ready looking into our next cruise with norwegian!

Cabin OA

Jeffrey was our cabin stewart and he was very pleasant and friendly. Our room always was clean and stocked. My favorite was the towel animals every night!

Port Reviews


Rockland really did not offer much so we took a cab to Camden, Maine and that was the best. We ate at the waterfront restaurant and it was delicious. The town had a sweet charm and we were there exploring for hours
