I chose this cruise because we wanted a quick getaway and the price was right. I am NCl platinum, actually this was our 3 rd cruise in 2019, the first on a smaller ship. The ship was only half full. This was due to the change in itinerary. Originally the itinerary was for Cuba and due to trump that was no longer possible . Passengers were given the choice of refunds. We also couldn't dock at the private island due to high winds. Royal Caribbean dropped anchor, however I did not see their tenders out . We left and had a nice day at sea.. We were lucky enough to take a behind the scene tour. It was Fantastic NCl was also dropping off many pallets of supplies to assist the post Dorian Hurricane efforts.Our oceanview room was clean and more than adequate with a large porthole.We enjoy dining room breakfasts and the service and food was quite good. Dinners were at both the main dining rooms or Cagneys and La Cucina. My husband enjoyed his steak at Cagneys. I am a pescatarian and there were always several selections for me. We never eat hamburgers , hotdogs or that kind of food at home so I can't speak for that on a cruise. There was always fresh salads, Indian food, fish choices etc, The buffet was compact ,but adequate for lunch. Entertainment was good . There was 1 show per night at 9 pm. The comedian was funny and the singers and dance troupe was great. Both embarkation and disembarkation was a breeze. I was initially concerned that since free or discounted air was offered it would be a circus. It was handled in a quick and organized fashion. Already looking forward to the Western med cruise on the Epic next year
