Looked great on paper. Realty did not meet expectations. Jogging track was small and had fumes from generators which ruined the run. The gym was too warm and the free weight area was way too small, 3 people at a time maximum. Pools were not nearly large enough for 4200 guests. Often had to wait for service at bars, sometimes 20-30 minutes. Elevators were often very crowded. Food was good, particularly the premium restaurants and The Taste. Coffee was inconsistent, sometimes very strong. Ice was not always available. Norwegian gave us orange room keys which indicated we were first time Norwegian Cruisers. Felt that caused us to be ostracized by Norwegian Cruise “snobs” . Excursion at Ocho Rios, Jamaica was fun ( except for the overly pushy vendors), but was disappointed by the Isle of Passion excursion at Cozumel. Food was not that great nor was there much variety. Will not likely cruise with Norwegian again.

Adequate but not spectacular

Cabin Review

Balcony
Cabin BF 11076
Too small, bathroom and toilet tiny, only one electrical outlet in the entire cabin. Not friendly for a CPAP user. Had to anticipate each other’s moves as walk path at foot of bed was only wide enough for one person.
