Sail Date: Dec 2019
Cabin: Mid-ship Mini-Suite with Balcony

This was my first time sailing on a Norwegian ship. I have previously sailed on Celebrity, Holland, and Carnival cruise lines.

My friend and I chose this cruise primarily for the fact that we were sailing on a new ship and we would be sailing in the Caribbean during December, allowing us to escape the cold weather in NJ.

We also liked the fact that we received specialty dining for 3 restaurants, a free beverage package, excursion credits in every port, and airfare with transfers along with our cruise fare.

Cabin was perfect! Had a full size shower in bathroom.

Port Reviews

San Juan

Walked around old San Juan. Went to gringos for drinks. Punta de Vista was an excellent restaurant that I highly recommend!

St. Thomas

Brought to Coral World in a van with no air-conditioning and no open windows.
