On the small side of NCL ships and while everything was clean and updated the age and size of the ship had it's own challenges. Spaces were smaller than normal NCL ships with fewer food options. The buffet proved to be a little challenging with how small and lack of options. If you get seasick this ship is NOT a good one. Alot of rocking (storms we encountered made it really bad). Layout makes it hard to get around as there is not a good flow to the ship. With only one pool (hot tubs in the middle), the bands made it impossible to enjoy due to how loud they played (saw several people with earplugs due to the loud music) The staff was incredibly nice and went out of their way to talk to everyone and not just a hello in the hallway. Officers stopped by at several meals to chat as well as numerous other staff members. You can tell that NCL is starting to make cuts everywhere from housekeeping going from twice a day to only once, production shows cut, to 4 strawberries from 6 in your room upon arrival.

Cabin Review

Inside cabin on deck 10. Room was very quiet and had everything needed. It was on the smaller side of a normal NCL inside room with less storage.

Port Reviews

San Juan

Very walkable city. Downloaded a walking tour and saw a ton of the city.
