This is our 2nd NCL cruise and have been greatly satisfied with both cruises. Was looking to visit Key West on our own but when we saw this cruise went there, we booked this. The value for this trip is amazing. Embarkation and disembarkation went very smoothly. especially since you leave on a Friday and come back on a Wednesday avoiding the weekend traffic. The ship is a smaller ship but it is very easy to get around. We had an oceanview cabin on the 8th floor and it was a great location and the room was very cozy. We were very happy with the room. It would have made sense though for NCL to have a full length mirror in room for people to get dressed. Le Bistro and Cagneys restaurants were our favorite nights of dining. Food at the palace and crossings were ok but nothing special. We loved that they have a restaurant on the top deck on back of the ship. So you can eat and watch as you pull in or out of ports.

Entertainment was great during the 6 days, Lots of activities just like larger ships. Key west was great and you can do everything by foot. NCL own island was pretty nice as well (recommend doing the waverunners tour) if you don't do an excursion then its just a beach day. Blue lagoon is very nice w/Segway at Nassau Bahamas. Did Viator excursion gold rock beach and caverns, worth checking out. Beach is amazing. We were extremely please with the whole trip. Served its purpose, we wanted a relaxing trip to escape the cold north and that's what we got. Would definitely do it again.
