Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Oct 2019
  • Destination: the Bahamas
  • Cabin Type: Balcony

We did the 5 day. October 12-17. We ended up with two sea days because of hurricane damage to Grand Bahamas.

Room 9271- great room great steward. No complaints at all!!

Food- The buffets were hit or miss. A lot of the same food every day, Ate a few hot dog lunches. Dinners were very good. Service in the two main restaurants really depends on your server. One night was great the other was very slow. Upcharge restaurants- we did Cagney's and the Brazilian steak house. Both were excellent.

Entertainment- of the 5 nights two were given to a comedian. Comedy is very subjective so it was not something we enjoyed. The two stage shows were ok. They are like a good high school musical. Not a lot to do on the ship at night.

Over all NCL needs for staff. They give out the drink package and there are not enough servers or bartenders. Lines in the buffet for breakfast and lunch are too long.

Great stirrup cay was a nice stop. We wish they would have taken us there twice instead of 2 sea days, Kayak excursion was great. Food on the island was very good. Not enough bars or bartenders. The main beach needs way more sand put on the beach, The rocks and the concrete under the water was painful. Wish I had brought underwater shoes.

We still had a great time, NCL is turning into Carnival with a lot of drinking and the drunk groups on board. Lifeguards had to call security to the pool a few times.

Cabin Review


Great cabin. Great steward.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews


Had a nice time. Clean ship. Soda and beer were expensive $5.00 for a beer and $2.00 for a soda. Most snorkel trips we have been on include sodas.
