This was our 7th NCL Cruise. Everything about this cruise was easy and fun! Service in Manhattan, Taste, Savor and O’Sheehan’s was top notch. Food was terrific. Buffet was great for a quick bite or a snack. Buffet was kept immaculate and we could always find a clean table. We enjoy the casino, and we had so much fun in this casino. The servers, Soledad and Jerwin, were really on the ball. We never waited for a drink. We also enjoyed our chats with the casino host, Wei Seng Kuang. He was friendly and personable! As stated in many reviews, the small adult pool is inadequate for the size of this ship. We did enjoy some entertainment around the pool. Loved the Sexy Legs contest. We found that Spice H2O was the perfect spot to enjoy the sun. It has rainfall showers and a very large waterfall feature, all designed to cool you off in the absence of a pool. There are also 2 hot tubs there. There were plenty of loungers, a nice ocean breeze and a bar with very entertaining bartenders! We ate all breakfasts outside at the Margaritaville buffet. It was always empty and quiet. The Garden Cafe is way too noisy and active!! Go to the 16th floor to enjoy a peaceful breakfast. Overall, the ship was crowded but there are plenty of nooks to escape the crowds. Service was spot on at all bars, all dining rooms and our cabin. We had a fun, relaxing vacation!

Beautiful Ship - Great Service

Cabin Review

Balcony Stateroom
Cabin BC 11144
Cabin was fine for 2 people. Plenty of storage. Balcony was small but good enough. Closet is hard to access with the positioning of the bed. Our room steward, Ryan, was excellent. Always had clean towels. Cleaned our room early in the day and replenished everything we needed.
