- Sail Date: July 2019
- Destination: Western Caribbean
- Cabin Type: Family Mini-Suite with Balcony
We went to the Rock of Ages show and loved it. I would not recommend bringing children to the show due to explicit scenes and language. We enjoyed eating at Savor for breakfast & dinner, as well as dinner at the Manhattan. My mother, brothers girlfriend, and I enjoyed Canvas by You, we painted a beach with palm trees. We had a family dinner at the Cagney steakhouse on our first night. Service was very slow, our food was cold, and our steaks were not cooked as we ordered them. After that experience we cancelled our other dining reservations we had for the week and stuck with the complimentary options and enjoyed Savor for breakfast, lunch and dinner, the Manhattan for dinner and Taste for dinner. The buffet was ok, great to get lemonade, tea, juice & water. Stuck mostly with the carving station, and soups on the buffet, the freshly baked bread station was great.
We all loved the port of Roatan. My spouse, teen and I did the Tabyana Beach & snorkel excursion. This was my favorite excursion and port. Beautiful beach, we could snorkel at the beach or swim out to the reef on a guided tour. The people were wonderful, food & drink was great, showers, restrooms, lockers very clean. My parents enjoyed the day shopping at the port, and my brother and girlfriend enjoyed Gumbalimba. We enjoyed the pools at Harvest Caye. My spouse and son enjoyed the water park excursion at Costa Caye and my mother and I enjoyed shopping at the port. Snuba excursion in Cozumel was fun.
Enjoyed the spa, pedicures and massage was wonderful on our last day at sea. Disembarkation was smooth, we arranged transport to the airport through Norwegian and were in the first group to get leave after those carrying their own luggage off.
Did not like that we had to keep changing the time, we had to change time zones 4 times on the ship and it was confusing. Would have preferred to stay on ship time. Not a lot of communication on port arrival and instructions. Would have been lost without the activities page left each night and the knowledge of how things generally worked from a previous cruise. Staff was great and service in the main dining rooms was great.
