Covid finally allowed us to take this cruise that we had booked for about a year. This is an incredibly beautiful ship. It was operating at low capacity as things were just starting to open up. We booked two yacht club rooms. The yacht club experience was awesome. We are frequent cruisers and this was our second yacht club experience. It does not disappoint. The service was incredible, the deck spaces and pool area are large and inviting and the food was excellent. In most areas it beats the Norwegian Haven experience hands down.
The nightlife was really good for a low census ship. There were at least three opportunities to see entertainment nightly. The itinerary was good but had to be changed due to some islands being closed to cruise ships. This ship was well laid out and has lots of areas that would be great for families with young kids. This is one of the first ships I have seen with an indoor retractable roof pool that also had excellent outdoor pools including a unique pool on the back of the ship on level seven.
The fitness center was large and had interesting equipment. They were not offering classes in the gym because of covid but the gym was well laid out and mostly empty which made it very inviting! Many of the classes that would have been in the gym like stretching and aerobics were moved outside to the pool deck. There was a spin room but no classes offered the week we were onboard.
