We chose this cruise for the itinerary. Very happy with the cruise overall. There were a few things that could have been better, such as embarkation and debarkation. Also the stop in Grand Cayman was not very organized with 5 other ships in port, because of the lack of organization our shore excursion left late and seemed to be rushed trying to get caught up and we still ended up getting back to the ship late. Thankfully it was a Norwegian booked tour and the ship had to wait for us otherwise we would have been out of luck. Our cruise was great except for the few things mentioned above, the ship was fantastic and the workers were great. Our room steward Jonah was very good at her job , always had a smile and something nice to say. Our butler Manolito was also very pleasant and made sure we wanted for nothing. We also had the privilege of having Bowen the best concierge that we have ever had on any cruise, Bowen was vey helpful, cheery and seemed to really enjoy his job, we hope to cross paths with all of them again on another cruise. As for the different stops that we made they were all good. Cozumel we did a Mexican cuisine and cooking class that we would most likely do again given the chance. Two stops in Belize one at Harvest Caye where we just hung out on the beach, the only downside of this private island is that nothing is included except the beach chairs. Second stop in Belize we visited the Mayan ruins at Lamanai which we would highly suggest. Grand Cayman we did the turtle farm and stingray city which would have been better if not so rushed. Finally in Jamaica we had a beautiful day at the beach.

Cabin Review

The Haven Aft-Facing Penthouse with Balcony
Cabin H6 10912
I do not think there is probably any better cabin on board than this category. Great to sit on very large balcony and watch the wake of the ship as we sailed. Seperate bedroom and living area along with two seperate bathrooms, the main bathroom had a seperate tub an shower both of which looked out of windows to see out past our balcony.
