I chose NCL because the free packages offered at booking and the port of calls available on the itinerary. What a sad investment it turned out to be. Highlights: -4 hours to receive the NCL booked transfer from airport to pier -2.5 hour wait time to get from the port desk to the ship -service at the pool bar was nonexistent without flashing cash (yes we had the drink package) -the power/toilets/water was out on our hallway for a length of time during a sea day -ropes course/rock wall had limited hours of opening during the day -there was very little to do on board without laying in the sun or visiting the casino on the days at sea -food was average-nothing extraordinary -docking in Nassau there were 4 other boats in port so moving around in the shopping area was incredibly hard to do. I would not recommend NCL or this ship if you are looking for activities or a smooth sailing experience.

Nothing to do.
