We wanted to go on a cruise in Hawaii, and Norwegian is the only one doing that so we booked NCL. The experience was positive. the staff was super friendly and helpful. The ship offers something for everybody, as a matter of fact we did not see everything onboard at the end of 7 days. The dining was great, besides the main dining area there were many restaurants catering to many tastes. we especially liked 'East meets West' The sushi there was amazing. You could always grab a snack at various stations and we enjoyed snacking and enjoying a good cup of coffee aft of the ship, it was quieter and the view always great. We attended a few shows which were always entertaining and appealing to a broad audience We had a balcony stateroom and it was perfect and enjoyed having a drink at the balcony. When the ship docks at a port you have that rush and anxiety to go out and explore. We booked two shore excursions with Norwegian. I have to say that we felt theexcusions were somewhat expensive. on other ports of call we ventured on our own. I believe NCL should make available more detailed info about the port of call e.g. shopping areas, how far, more detailed map, better info on local transportation etc.etc. Returning from shore we had to toss all water bottles. I find the no water policy somewhat silly....

Amazing Hawaii island hopping with Norwegian....

Cabin Review

Family Balcony
Cabin B3 8036
The cabin was nice, especially with the balcony. However for first time cruiser we felt a little squeezed.
