Additional details

Sail Date: Nov 2019
Cabin: Studio Stateroom

I cruised out of Miami to Belize and Costa Maya. The buffet food on this ship was poor. Little selection for non meat eaters, and what vegetables they had were overcooked. Specialty dining portions were ridiculously small.

Entertainment was average, although the band on Deck 15 was very good.

Service- Staff in general were pleasant. My room steward was overly cheerful, however was not overly attentive to room details. Did not provide a clean wine glass. No ice bucket was provided. Had to request my complimentary sparkling wine. Glasses over sink were not provided x 2 days. Did not pick up shower towels once. Not sure where his head was at.

Cabin Review

Studio Stateroom

Cabin was adequate. Small space with a large bed. Prefer the studio on the Bliss which has a smaller bed, providing more space. Also the "window" to the hallway is useless. NCL needs to update to match other ships with the screen displaying real time outdoor sea.

Port Reviews

Costa Maya

Too touristy
