I love the freestyle cruising. Not having set meal times becaues you never know what you are going to be doing. All the meals were wonderful. Never had more then a 10 minute wait. Ate in 3 of the speacial restaurants and they were the best. All of the staff really cares about you and if you are having a good time. Our room was small but had adequate storage. When we do this again I think we would leave the beds separated as they have that bunk on the wall on one side and I worried about hitting it with my shoulder every time I got in and out of bed. Wish the bathroom was a bit larger too. Only disappointment was we didn't get a towel animal on the first night and no monkey towel. We had our money coffee and snacks delivered everyday and thst guy was awesome. Also I have to compliment Justine for getting us a great room and with the actual booking experience. With our upgrade to a porthole room so we could actual see the sea. I wish the weather would have been warmer. The disembarkation from the ship was easy and right by our room. Embarkation at take off was pretty quick and smooth and getting on after being in Bermuda. I guess the disembark from ship when we arrived at home port in Boston was ridiculous. Not sure why they give you a time because by the time we were supposed to get off, we would have been about 2 hours back in the line that winds through the ship and would have missed our bus to the airport. Lots of entertainment and activities to keep you busy. The one and only port was Bermuda which was great. We saw parts of the island on our own.we will definitely go again. I love cruising. Thank you Norwegian

Was an Awesome trip.

Cabin Review

Mid-Ship Oceanview Porthole Window
Cabin OF 4622
Small but Cozy. Enough storage took extra hangers which was good. Bathroom too small. Good shower, water pressure and hot water was pentiful.
Deck 4 Inside Cabins, Outside Cabins

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

  • Boston
    Well we did a walking sight seeing trip. We were dropped off from hotel to the subway. The subway is very confusing. Which one to take to go downtown. All the maps we seen, none of them said you are here. Very important if you don't know where you are or how to get somewhere. My mapquest on my phone had us walking in circles just wanted to find the Cheers Bar and finally did. But it was tough. Then to get back to a pick up spot you had to find the subway again.some guy on the street asked if we needed help, yes I said and he got us going in the right direction. Thank you
