Fantastic cruise to Aruba & 7 other islands

Nov 5th, 2019

This was a unique cruise out of New York. We met people from all over the world. The islands were fantastic and the weather was perfect. We saw the best islands in the Southern Caribbean. You cannot beat Aruba, Bonaire, Curacao, St Lucia, St Kitts, Barbados, Grenada and St Thomas. Highly recommended.

Overall it was very relaxing. We met some really nice people. For handicap accessible cruising it was OK but could be improved upon

Last cruise with my dad

Oct 31st, 2019

This was a family cruise that my parents got for us. This ship was a very family friendly ship, intimate not as active as the mega-ships.

Worst cruise - ever.

Oct 27th, 2019

I have cruised with NCL before and totally enjoyed the cruise. This was the worst cruise and many other passengers had similar concerns. If I had not had a balcony I would not have enjoyed much on this cruise. Communication needed to be several levels higher. Staff seemed to be unconcerned about guests and the enjoyment of the cruise. Many staff were so lack luster and lacked personality.

Make a note anyone going on Norwegian as its not only alcohol that is not allowed at

Oct 19th, 2019

Ship seemed a bit short staffed. Day before disembarking was a portt day. Only had one bar open so was difficult to get a drink with evening meal.
