Sail Date: Mar 2020

NCL Joy was a very nice ship. Food in specialty restaurants was wonderful. We tried Cagney’s, le bistro, Q smokehouse, Ocean Blue, and la cucina but main dining Manhattan room was just ok. Don’t eat all day before going to Q smokehouse it was a lot of food. My husband and I did not like the Local. Atmosphere was noisy and poor food. Also too many high top tables. We enjoy O’Sheehans much better.

Entertainment was great. Our room 14780 was great but wasn’t expecting a tub which wasn’t good with a hurt foot. We had concierge service but never saw him again after first day. Room steward did an excellent job.

Slow bar service in casino but casino was kind to us.

Awful hours of waiting to get in and off ship


Hotel beach buffet was good but the venders were constant and some wouldn’t take no for an answer.

Puerto Vallarta
