My Sons Girlfriend wanted to Celebrate her 30th B-Day. He agreed to the Cruise - they have done several - but he secretly arranged a wedding propsal on a Cozumel Beach. Of the Cruises i've been on this one was one of the better

1 The ship was quite impressive in size, appeareance, was clean, neat and well maintained Ships graphics really gave you a feeling on leaving on a fantasy ship The ride was smooth

2 Crew was...Awesome..from getting directions, questions on dining or entertainment to anything they gave you 100% attention. Server Maria Ocho seem to be at every event we attended and gave us 5-star service Thumbs Up

3 Entertainment was Amazing didn't see all the shows but Eagle Tribute Band drew big crowd, the Circus A'Le? Show kept your attention and the meal was decent quality - Burning up the Street show was high energy dance with great stage scenes

4 Food was decent quality through out the diners. The specialty restaurants had much better selection and the servers were good

5 I thought the "Freestyle" concept was great Alot of open shows, games, contests things to do with out having a wrist band or deck card like other cruises

--1 Thumbs way way down on our Flight Arrangements We made reservations months in advance - NCL arranged the flights we ended up with a 5am flight and 4 hour layover to get there and going home a 10 hour stay at New Orleans airport with a plane change in Houston Getting Home at 2am - Really killed any good time we had

****Book your own Flights****

-2 Proper Staffing of the Bars during peak hours - Witness some issues with long wait times and whos turn it was to be served created some disgrutal remarks between some guests made it uncomfotable

-3 Hours of Operations on dining outlets could be extended a hour either way It seemed i had to adjust to thier open times

-4 Choice of Venues for Entertainment particually the Eagles Band The Lounge was quite small with limited sitting for the amount of folks that showed up...at all thier performaces - again, witness some confrontations for seating Maybe another bigger venue if the show turn out is that good

-5 The Flight Home!!! All Day in an Airport is not the way to end a Vacation The not so funny thing is that there was over 30 of us heading to PHX - would think the NCL could have got us all a direct flight ****Book Your Own Flights*****

Over All had a good time the Ports were as expected Cozumel and Roatan were very authentic - white sands, blue water, clear skies and beautiful sunsets -good chance ill go again
