We were a little hesitant about our first cruise post pandemic, wondering how much might be altered and if there would be a lot of up-selling to recoup lost revenue during covid. We needn’t have worried.
From the moment we stepped on board, we were continuously warmly welcomed and nothing was too much for the staff. You really do feel great morale with the staff - relaxed, happy, chatty, keen to please. From the bar staff to hospitality, entertainment and childcare team, every single encounter we had with crew was positive and exceeded our expectations.
We have cruised with Celebrity, Royal Caribbean and NCL - we really do love the relaxed and informal vibe on NCL. Travelling with two young kids (4 and 7) this was their first cruise and they were made to feel very welcome. The team were always taking great care of them - at restaurants, kids club, life guards at the pool and bar staff - happy kids = happy parents and we all had a great time. My son loved the kids club, often wanting to go twice a day! We also enjoyed the ropes course, water slides, pool, arcade, bowling and entertainment.
