We chose this cruise because of the itinerary. The ship was a bit different then other NCL ships I have been on. This one has both the main dinning room and the Theater in the aft of the ship. When you entered the theater, you entered in the front, different, but not bad at all. We attended most of the shows and they were very well done. The NCL band is outstanding, as well as the singers and dancers. We did not take part in any of the ship board activities because we were too busy with excursions. The cabin was great, the food in all dinning rooms was great as well. We were lucky enough to have nice weather through out the cruise We did an excursion thru NCL in every port. Most of them were very good, we did have one that got changed because of a washed out road and it turned out to be our least favorite, but we were compensated some for it. All in all a great experience.
