This was our first time travelling with Norwegian as a family. Previously we took a Carnival cruise before we had the kids. This experience was much better and we can’t wait to cruise again. The kids loved the water slides, ropes course and mini putt. They also had lots of fun at Splash academy playing outdoor games on the sports court and participating in their Survivor and Glow nights. We mostly stuck to the buffet in the Garden Cafe since we all could find something we liked whenever we wanted and we didn’t need to wait to be served. The food there was great especially for picky eaters. The kids liked the dancing in After Midnight and we enjoyed the Brat Pack show when they were at Splash Academy. As a family, we participated in a lot of the Atrium events like trivia, making balloon creations and cupcake decorating. Servers were always friendly and we were very impressed with the quality of service on the boat and at the ports when they were passing out drinks, jello and frozen juice pops. We will definitely cruise with Norwegian again.

Excellent Family Cruise

Cabin Review

Family Oceanview Stateroom with Large Picture Window
Cabin O1 5140
Very spacious cabin due to the fact it was wheelchair accessible. Not much traffic nearby and little noise around at night. We did hear some noise one morning when we docked in Nassau since the walkout was right below us but we were getting ready for an excursion so it wasn’t a problem.
