Overall it was a nice cruise. Most of the Crew was amazing. Except for Elements entertainment was very disappointing. Same food choice everywhere with slight variations every day for 14 days. NCL is cutting corners. Felt lots of pressure to buy cruise next & Art sales. We booked this cruise because of itinerary. Port depends of what you do. We had a good visit except St. Thomas & St. John’s. Both beautiful port. Wrong excursions. Had couple of surprising Rain not a biggie! Ship is pretty Old & creaked a lot. Everything in the stores were super expensive more than double the price. Communication was pretty bad during disembarkation. Deck 7 have to go through Bliss which is where customs clearance is done and it was an easy walk off. Embarkation at Tampa was a mess. Our check in time was 9-9:30. Was there at 9. Had to wait outside port till 10:30. No computers at check in and check in was done with tablets and lady was struggling with customer before us. Finally changed lane and everything moved smooth and was on the ship by 11:40

Cabin Review


Cabin was ok. Cabin attendant was nice. There was sand in the draw. I am glad I had wipes. Can see mirror in the bathroom may need to be replaced. I am glad shower is better than most of the newer ships & had a glass door.

Port Reviews


Did walking tour. Too many flies at fish market. Stray dogs on the street. Sad to see them get hurt & no one cares. 1/2 way through excused & left the excursion
