Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Jan 2019
  • Destination: the Western Caribbean
  • Cabin Type: Balcony Stateroom

Wanted New Orleans cruise . Wanted to try Norwegian and try a larger ship. We were very happy with all of the above. Larger ship delivered great entertainment as well as diversity of entertainment. We really enjoyed the various dining options and the service was great. Even though the largest ship we ever sailed on , we witnessed very high service level on deck and the movement around the ship was very smooth and relaxing. We really enjoyed the flexible dining times. Temperature control Inthe cabin was excellent. The excursions we took were great and very well organized. It was very nice having access to breakfast on disembarkation. Also first time we self disembarked which was a great choice . Basically walked off the ship with no crowds. Finally casino was nice to have a nonsmoking section. Norwegian won our business. We plan to sail with them this summer to Alaska.
