I love Norwegian. My best friend had only gone Royal Caribbean so this was a first for her. We looked at length of cruises and 4 days away we thought would be enough to rejuvenate these two working moms. This trip was amazing! First we splurged because it was just the two of us so we did not each have to pay for our family of 4. We were upgraded to the Penthouse. We upgraded with no idea what that meant besides a bigger balcony and a big bed. What we did not know was that we would be pampered beyond belief. We were met boarding by Gian, our concierge who booked everything we wanted-restaurants, shows, excursions, messages. It was amazing. Then we went to Cagneys for our welcome lunch. Our waitresses and waiters were great. I had my first drink “Ms. Universe”. The food was exceptional. We chilled there until our room was ready. Once we went to our room we could not believe this place was ours for four days -A great front of the ship balcony, huge bed, double sink, soak tub, shower, two loungers. We had a lot of room! Strawberries and cheese were waiting for us with Champagne. The next day we were going to Great Stirup Cay. We got a Villa. Our butler Rodwin met us there to show us around. Yes, our butler. We had no idea what a butler does except on Fresh Prince of Bellaire so you can imagine our surprise when we met him on day 1. Our Villa was beautiful-air conditioning, refrigerator, fresh fruit, nachos, water, coffee, tea, couch, tv, table, two covered lounge chairs and private beach and buffet area. This is a great idea for families. It was $350 total and we had $100 excursion credit and $50 extra food credit. The two of us split it to $125 each! A bigger family could absolutely split it. We splurged and got massages on the island. It was heaven. I can’t say enough about how great Rodwin was. He came anytime we called, answered our questions, left us cookies or sandwiches when we were gone and brought us fresh flowers. He also set up a full breakfast table for us 1 morning with linens. We had to waiters I Made Yesa and Mike Menanghas who were super! We also loved the music show and the comedian. We hard core belly laughed and relived the music from our childhood. If we could have hid in the closet and stayed on the ship, we just might have. Thank you Norwegian for everything! Great staff! -Marti & Jen

PS...the pillows were so nice, we bought our own from
