I chose this cruise because it was a nice short one and being a first time cruiser I figured I’d start off small. I cruised with my family of two teenage boys and we all loved it. There was plenty for everyone to do on the ship. We really enjoyed the food and selection of drinks available. I have never eaten or drank so much in my life. When I got my final bill, there were no hidden charges or fees. I really appreciated that. We actually wind up leaving with a credit due to staying under the preauthorized amount charged to my credit card. With everything that was included and complimentary on the ship we barely spent any additional money which was a nice unexpected treat. We ate mostly at the complimentary restaurants but did catch a show that that did include a charge and a three-course meal. My boys are still talking about how good the food and show was. The service was impeccable and I just couldn’t ask for better memories to be had with my family. We stayed in a balcony room with a beautiful unobstructed view of the ocean. It was nice to be able to open the balcony doors and get some fresh sea air into the room. We used room service for breakfast and the service was awesome. What I really enjoy about the staff working on the ship is that tipping is not expected. But the service is so good they make you want to tip them. I could not imagine not tipping such hard working people. Every time we left our rooms no matter how many times we were in and out during the day, we came back to clean rooms. Everywhere we ate had very clean surroundings. I would definitely cruise with Norwegian again. Looking forward to it.

Awesome
