11 nights, newer and bigger ship out of New Orleans. We enjoyed the ship and the ports. We took advantage of the double discounts on shore excursions and had some really nice ones. All of the excursions were great, but the Spice Farm from Harvest Caye was the best. We even got in the new NCL promotional video showing the spice farm tour. The ship was beautiful, the food was great, and the people were friendly and helpful. Our cabin with the corner balcony was better than expected. Our NCL agent, German Escobar, reccommended it because he had stayed in it. The only downside was the entertainment which I had expected to be better than the other NCL ships we have sailed on. The theater is small, no balcony. Double the guests compared to Jade and Jewel but less room. We ate dinner at 5:30, went straight to the theater for the 4 Tenors at 15 till 7, and the doors were closed. I dom't like the reservation system; I prefer the freestyle system on mid size ships. Burn the floor was great, but Rock of Ages should be scrapped. The theater had fewer special effects such as aerial acts. The circus show in a different place was very good, but not as spectacular as some we have seen on NCL. Great cruise, great itenerary, great port city, great people, and excellent array of shore excursions.
