Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Apr 2010
  • Destination: the Western Caribbean
  • Cabin Type: Mid-Ship Mini-Suite with Balcony

We had an awesome cruise! NCL are the best and their employees are fabulous.

We went as a group; myself, wife 2 year old son, inlaws. We stayed in adjoining mini suites and loved it.

Our room attendant was Edguardo and he was fantastic and very, very kind to our son. He made sure there was a new towel animal on his bed everyday!

We love NCL, we would recommend them to anyone especially if you are travelling with children!

We went to Cozumel, Belize City, Roatan, Aruba, Curacao and Tortola! All were excellent ports especially Curacao. Be aware that if you arrive in Curacao on a Sunday, not much is open as it is a religious day for them! Really wanted to go to the Harley-Davidson store there but it was closed...huge bummer...lol!

We just booked another cruise on the Norwegian Gem for February! NCL rocks!

Cabin Review

Mid-Ship Mini-Suite with Balcony
Cabin MA 10

Mini suite was great. Lots of room. Bar fridge is a great idea. Coffee maker in room. Large bathroom. Very quiet. Large balcony...especially when you have adjoining rooms; balconies are doubled in size then!


Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

Cozumel

Very nice port! Make sure you get your picture taken in the shark's mouth just outside the pier on the other side of the street! The Hard Rock Cafe is awesome...the Mac & Cheese is to die for!

Belize City

Nice port, not too much to do there though. My father in law and myself went on a deep sea reef fishing trip...was awesome! Caught dozens of fish which were all donated to local children's homes for food...nice!

Roatan

Awesome port! Lovely people. Unreal views. Make sure to check out the Diamonds International!!

Aruba

Very pretty port! Nice people. Lots of outlet shops. The SWATCH store is cool and has great prices.

Curacao

Unbelievable port!!! SO so so pretty. Make sure you take time to walk throughout the city and take a walk across the floating bridge; hopefully you'll get to see it open for traffic..it's cool. The SWATCH store is also nice, lots of outlet stores. The stores in the city are very nice and well priced as well.

Tortola

Nice port. Only had until 3pm in port. Last port of the cruise. Make sure you check out Diamonds International store as it has lots of nice watches at great prices. Also make sure you take a tour of a beach for a couple hours. Great prices on tours right at the pier.
