My daughter & I traveled with a few other families for a Senior Spring Break trip & had a great time. Attended Cirque show which was fun. Dined in Tropicana a few times which was good too & loved being able to eat whatever time we wanted w/ freestyle. We used our other SPD's at Tappenyaki & La Cucina and were pleased. Wish we could have gotten into Ocean Blue but they were full towards the end of the week. Our group enjoyed H2O Spice adult deck during the day. (be sure to get a chair early anywhere on sea days). Loved having the drink pkg and enjoyed Margaritaville drinks. The whole ship was clean and had a huge variety of things to do. Elevators worked great even though it was a full ship it didn't seem too crowded overall. Not a fan of O'Sheehan food but the Garden buffet was great for quick breakfast & lunch with lots of variety. Most team members were friendly but the bartenders were really flat. Roatan was fun as we had a full day excursion that we booked outside of Norwegian. The private island at Belize was beautiful. We got there early and had some great seats near the pool where we spent the whole day. Wish they had more variety for beer bucket (only had 8oz Heiniken cans or draft to pick from) A little pricey but glad the locals get to benefit from all the passengers. We found a great little beach club (Pez Quadro/40 Canons boutique hotel) at Costa Maya to spend the day and the port shops were plentiful and even a pool in the middle. The girls saw a mexican wrestling show which was hilarious. Not a fan of Cozumel but the girls wanted to experience the rite of passage at Senor Frogs. We also enjoyed the deck parties with themes: 80's, Glow & Farewell. I would definitely use Norwegian again!

Cabin Review

Mid-Ship Oceanview Stateroom with Large Picture Window
Cabin OB 5802
I was impressed with the size of the cabin, bathroom and closet space! The window was big enough for my teenage daughter to sit in and put on her makeup. The bed was comfy and everything was clean. The only negative is that it's below Tappenyaki and you can hear the chairs moving across the floor above. This only impacted a small window of time during the dining hours and never a problem for us once we retired for the night. Loved being able to easily walk up to all the action on decks 6/7/8.
