  • Destination: the Bahamas
  • Cabin Type: Mid-Ship Inside

Service was top notch. Price was reasonable, timing worked with our schedule, beverage package was fantastic. Stateroom was a good size with lots of storage, and the bed was really comfy. Bathroom was compact; shower was small, but it worked very well. Outside areas were roomy with lots of chairs; no scrounging around to find somewhere to sit! Overall atmosphere was great; lots of fun entertainment, but not total party atmosphere. Hallways were relatively quiet at night, something we’ve had negative experiences with in the past on a different line.

Food was very good, but fell somewhat short of our expectations. Breakfast buffets were outstanding, with lots of variety, but the dining rooms not so much. The food was good, just not, well, special. Freestyle dining, however, is a really nice option.

Ports of call were great; we did Key West and Freeport, and had plenty of time at both places.

Boarding process was incredible; we arrived earlier than our allotted time and expected to have to wait quite a bit. We were pleasantly surprised to not only breeze through the initial boarding process, but to be welcomed aboard and immediately have access to our rooms! That blew us away.

Disembarking was just as smooth. We opted to keep our bags with us, which we left in the stateroom while we had breakfast. After a short wait in line once we finished eating, we were off the boat and through customs. Very, very smooth process! Overall we were pleased and will book again with Norwegian.

Great sized room with tons of storage; comfy bed

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews


All inclusive meant chairs, drinks, food, bathrooms, and transfer to/from the dock. A bit pricey, and some confusion about when to eat at the buffet, but food was really good and the beach was beautiful.
