We chose this cruise because it fit our vacation schedule. It was out first ever cruise and it was a wonderful experience! Our balcony rooms were lovely and spacious. The food and drinks (drink package) were outstanding and so was the entertainment and service. We LOVED the Manhattan, O'Sheehan's, Le Bistro, Bayamo, and Teppanyaki. The shows were outstanding! We saw Choir of Men, Company of Men, After Midnight, Howl at the Moon and the comedy magician Greg Gleason. We enjoyed the music of the various bands and solo performers. We went standby for a couple of shows which was no problem to get in. The buffet was also excellent. The ship was so clean and hand washing at all eateries was required. We took a behind the scenes tour which included the kitchen and it was remarkably clean. We did the scuba excursion in Nassau and had a wonderful time. The ropes course, game area, basketball court and tube slides were all enjoyed. The staff was friendly and attentive and clearly very-trained. If we could change one thing, the pool was just a little small for the size of the ship. There was a kiddie pool and adult pool, leaving no good in-between for young teenagers. That being said: it was the most fun we remember having together in a long time and look forward to our next Norwegian cruise!

Wonderful 1st Cruise!

Mid-ship Balcony Stateroom

Wonderful cabins! We had two balcony rooms side by side. They were clean and spacious. Our steward was very attentive.
