Very nice ship not incredible service

Sail Date: October 2010
Destination: Western Caribbean
Embarkation: Miami
Ok first of all my wife and I are avid cruisers we are on our late 30s and was our 17th cruise.

It is very important if this is youre first cruise you will find everything very nice, as for a frequent cruiser here is our story.

We arrived at the port at 11.30 am from that point till we entered the ship 1 hour 50 46 minutes exactly, the longest we have had to wait.

The ship is new very nice, we liked the room its diferent from the rest big shower, and tons of space for all our things hands up on that.

Do come in with a bathingsuit if ypou want to try the slides without lines we did the 3 slides pretty cool. The rest of the trip there were lines.

The days at sea it was literally imposible to get sunbathing chairs unless you woke up early and put youre towels there, also the pools are ridicoulously small for the size of the boat you passed bye and saw the people like sardines in the small pools not nice.

We had never done this More freestyling concept, they mention there are 20 restaurants but be aware only 4 included on the price and at peak hours you will have to wait, we were a party of 10 and everydat it was a headache to get a table for all of us the service was average as well as the food (there is nothing like having youre table every day ready and youre waiter allready knowing youre preferences).

We did the cirque dinner show, which was worth it because of the show, get the premium seating, again the food average, we did 2 more restaurants cagneys and le bistro both were very good but not extraordinary. basically the ship was great freestyle cruising wasnt great for us we like very good service and the only place we received great service was at the bliss disco the waitresses there are great.

At the end of the ship we did not receive a survey like in all the ships.

We wont do any NCL again unless they have a new ship. Less
