The NCL Free Style experience was a welcome deviation from our past experiences. Specialty restaurants exceeded our expectations. Cagneys, Ocean Blue and Modernos. Sea Days were crowded. The Haven seems to take a lot of space for the few. Spa was a nice amenity. We were upgraded and would probably pay to utilize the thermal suite. Plus it’s limited so a great way to escape the crowds on Sea days. One pool for non Haven guests is a poor design. Chair hogs were out early. NCL did not enforce any rules regarding reserving. Drink package excludes bottled water and coffee. Ship food and drink package not extended in Harvest Caye- felt we were double charged. Most of the crowd went back to the ship. $18 for two draft beers is a bit excessive. On board shopping is limited. Mojito bar was great along with all others. Outdoor seating was nice. Comedy shows, Cirque (paid) we’re all entertaining. We did our own excursions so cannot speak to NCLs offerings. We now added another cruise line to our options list.

Nice location. Adequate space for 3 adults. Balcony very small. Bathroom was great with full size shower and double sinks.
