This is the first time that I have written a review. I have been on about 18 cruises. This was my first experience with NCL. I will share some pros and cons.

Pros: Stateroom: We had a nice balcony with great views. The cabin was very clean. The shower area was large. There was constant very hot water ( as hot at you want it)in the shower. There were nice robes. The storage space was adequate. there were 2 movie channels on TV. We had ample towels.

Food: There was variety. The staff was accommodating in the restaurants. For example, I didn't like the sushi so they gave me other asian food instead. Overall the food was mediocre to very good.

Cabin Review

Port Reviews


The scuba diving was great but there was a hidden charge for equipment ( it was a good thing that we had some cash) which no-one warned us about.

Belize City

The zip line was great! The only caveat is that there is a 1plus hour bumpy ride each way.

Costa Maya

we had a great scuba experience . the dive shop was extremely nice. we loved the contained shopping/food/entertainment area , which had a pool in the middle of it.
