Sail Date: Jan 2020
Cabin: Studio Stateroom

This is my 4th time cruising with Norwegian, 7th time in total. The ship is 3 months old and is new and modern. Really enjoyed the virtual window in my inside solo cabin. The first lunch in the Taste dining room was really nice. The food was fine and the wait staff was kind. My solo cabin was very well appointed, clean with crisp bedding. The food in the dining room was fine even though not photogenic. There are so many options catering to all preferences. Two shows Choir of Man and Kinky Boots were good. Even though there were limited space in the swimming pool area, there are nice common areas on the 8th floor waterfront and the 15th floor observation lounge for people to hang out. Food is available 24/7. The staff was nice and welcoming. Embarking and disembarking were smooth. The ports are one of the best. St Thomas and Tortola offer beautiful beaches and many activities. Great Stirrup Cay was nice and clean. Norwegian served food here too. Ship docked in Puerto Rico for a few hours just enough to do some quick shopping. Overall it was a very relaxing cruise. Would cruise with Norwegian again.

Just enough time to do some shopping by the pier

Cane garden bay beach was fine.

The water is emerald. The sand is white. Island is clean. The ship serves food here.
