We went for 6 days and at the end they charge us $75 ! for some towel that we have nothing to do with. Insane ! . Even worst we called and ask to correct this mistake. They told us they need to review/check with the cleaning guy etc etc! what a Joke this company is! Avoid them! Waste of time and money Do not cruise with them! Norwegian is lot Better!

Myself and my future boarded this cruise in Africa. It was the 7 Day package to be exact. Service was amazing. Food up to standards. Entertainment was very entertaining and live performances was totally a blast. I found the wine to be a bit on the expensive side. Live music was phenomenal Would love to do this cruise sometime soon and would also love to have a much longer stay.

Wow! How can I some up a seven day cruise. One word. Excellent! We went on this ship in mid December 2019 for a Caribbean cruise. It was my first time. This is a newer ship and was very nicely appointed. This was before Covid, but the detail in cleaning on the ship was not expected. I went out early every morning, and sometimes just getting back from the night life, and there were hundreds of people cleaning the decks, stairs (outside and inside) and the constant cleaning in the restaurants was a pleasant surprise. The even have banks of sinks at the entrance to the buffets to wash before you ate. They had a young girl stationed by the sinks with a pleasant greeting of, "washy washy" to encourage people to wash their hands before eating. The restaurants were all good and the casino and bars a lot of fun. Get the unlimited beverage package if you drink alcohol at all! I am not sure I would ever go on a cruise again what with the current health crisis, but I thoroughly enjoyed my cruise in December. It seems like a lifetime ago!

We went the inaugural year in September '16. So much to do on this ship, so new (obvi), cool robot bartender, the huge slide is awesome, shows, and great food for a buffet, and I assume, for a cruise trip. Even casino, so felt like a floating city/Vegas in international waters. We were spoiled being our first time on a cruise liner! Nothing will compare to this one.
