Sail Date: Apr 2018
Cabin: Oceanview Picture Window

The crew was excellent but the ship was in poor condition. Windows were all dirty and not washed once during 18 day cruise. Lighting throughout the ship was out in a lot of places. Food was sub par for Norwegian. Just an overall disappointment. Ship was dirty in many areas. Maintenance was chipping and painting in areas above our head during cruise. Walkers and joggers were just above our room and noise was a bit distracting. Shower in handicap room allows water all over floor which becomes quite slippery. There was no hot water in the cabin when we first boarded. There was cold water but if you turned it all the way to hot there was no water at all. Some valve was off somewhere.

The crew was awesome despite the conditions of the ship. Entertainment was fantastic except for the Motown act.

Ability to take pictures was somewhat difficult at times because of the crowd.

Was placed in handicap room by mistake and not awarded upgrade because of it. Not happy

Port Reviews


Very confusing terminal if you never been there. Transport drops you at curb of busy street and there is no one directing you where to enter or go.


Walked a little from ship. People all over you when you get off ship. Area a bit dirty and smelly.

Cabo San Lucas

Saw the sites of area

Puntarenas (Puerto Caldera)

Loved the glass blower store.

Cartagena (Colombia)

Busy city. Lots of motor bikes. Way to many vendors for me
