We chose this cruise because it fit perfectly into our schedule. The cruise itself was wonderful. We loved all the ports and excursions. The only problem was the food. The whole reason we switched from Royal to Norwegian was the food. This trip we saw the same shrimp in a dish most nights. Our favorite lava cake dessert, which is usually offered nightly, was only offered one night. I hope this isn't a sign of things to come. Our room was extremely small, but our room steward was excellent. We had a great time in the casino, the dealers were very friendly. I was very impressed with the life guards around the pool. I had never seen them on prior cruises and always thought they were necessary. These lifeguards made sure parents controlled their children and kept the drunk people from drowning the 7 foot deep pool. Getting on and off the ship was a breeze. Read Less

First we have been on over 50 cruises on about 10 different lines so we have a bit of experience on how it works. We chose Norwegian because of the Cuba itinerary, had not sailed on Norwegian Cruise line since 2003 as we had a bad experience and when we complained we didn't get a satisfactory response, Nothing has changed as far as crew not to happy and food just so-so unless you dine in Specialty Restaurants. We were upset about our water being taken away before we boarded we always bring water on a cruise. It was open bar but the bar tenders are in no hurry to get you a drink and there is no sort of line so you can wait over 15 to get a drink at times. The water cost 18.00 for 6 1 liter bottles of water not wanting to pay for water while everyone else was drinking for free so most of the time we had to wait at the bar for water. We really didn't purchase anything big and made sure our bill was paid in full the last night of the cruise. Two days after we got home a charge on our credit card appeared for 12.98 we had walked off the ship with a zero balanced when we called they said we took 2 bottles of water out of the mini bar - which we didn't merely moved them to the desk to put my medication in the refrigerator. When we called and told this to the representative they sent us a receipt for 2 bottles of water from the mini bar with no signature and told us we were responsible. Really does Norwegian really have to sink this low. Our cabin was o.k, and the ship is in good condition. We did a private shore excursion in Cuba and had a wonderful time, and they were unable to tender to their private Island due to the"rough seas" but we could see Royal Caribbean right across from us tending there passengers all morning so we couldn't figure that one out. We did have a wonderful time in Cuba but would not go on Norwegian again. Read Less

We chose this cruise for Havana and we enjoyed it. Embarcation was fast so we were at Crossings by 12:30. Room was ready by 1:30. Our steward Andre was very helpful getting us another chair for the balcony as there were 3 of us. I was rather surprised (guess I didn't read the small print) that the usual Platinum perks were not included. No robes, sparkling wine, strawberries, dinners, etc. The Tropicana show was fantastic! We were able to purchase T shirts, etc. in the terminal with US dollars. The ship was clean and very comfortable for a small ship. The meals in the MDR were great. I have Sun booked for November and am looking forward to it. We did not see the shows but very much enjoyed the music in the various bars. Great Stirrup Cay was clean and the buffet was good. No long lines there either. We did not go in the water as we live on Ft Myers Beach so it was nothing new to us. Disembarcation went smoothly with no long lines. Very much enjoyed the short cruise. Have a 10 day booked for November on the Sun. Read Less

Reviews from other family and friends had told us that this was one of the best cruise ships. And my husband found it to be very nice so much so we are sorry that we did not take advantage of the promotion where you pay $250. and Norwegian cruise line add $500. and it is good for six years toward your next cruise. We love relaxing on the ship. I went to 2 comedy shows loved them. I went to an art auction I found that to be very interesting and exciting. White night was a lot of fun. Also we went on a tour in Nassau it was interesting. The whole cruise was great. Over all we had a great time great food and drinks oh and let me not forget the dancing. The staff was really nice and serve with a smile. If I was to complain about any thing it would be that I ordered water on line for our room and we did not receive it and we drank 2 or three bottles that was in the room and got charged $13. personally I thought that was rather high for water. Other than that we have no complaints. And this was my husband first cruise and we both hope to take another one however we want to go someplace different. Read Less
