I did not want to post a bunch of pictures right now I have been real busy since I returned from the cruise.
I will try to answer some of the questions I was hearing before I left and give a quick review on some of the trip.
Day before the cruise:
We always stay in Miami the day before our cruise (IF its out of Miami).
We stayed at the Miami Hilton Downtown we really like this hotel and it is right on the Biscayne Bay.
We could see the ships come in which is great. We ate lunch at the hotel which was very good and did a quick pizza at night.
I will start with we had a great trip food was generally good though out the ship. There was a fun atmosphere in all the venues and our favorite bartenders were in the Maltings bar with Rickey and the crew.
Pros and Cons
We really enjoyed the go carts the whole family and our friends enjoyed this.
The ship is beautiful only a few things I did not like.
Our mini suite was nice just like the other away ships no different.
The food on board that I enjoyed were as follows. Cagneys was great everyone's steaks were very good, Lebistro was very good, so was Lacucinia. My family liked Lacuchina more than I did but it was not bad.
Our favorite Restaurant was Q oh my the loaded fries are awesome all the meats were very good and the portions huge.
We ate 1 meal in the Buffet all our breakfasts and most lunches. The food was good not great but there were some highlights like the breakfasts were real good. Lunches just OK Prime rib night was great there cause you can ask for a thick slice which I like.
We did not eat in the main dinning areas so I can not comment on that.
The Solarium was awesome but I never stayed long .
Night life I always liked on NCL this was great as usuall we did go to Jersey Boys witch was good. Friends did Havana and Prohibition they did enjoy those more than Jersey Boys.
The drinks were always good throughout the ship I never had many waits unless it was at a event like the party's in the back of the ship.
All the Greygoose and other drinks that folks were speaking of were included in the package.
The stops on this trip were great highlighted by Cane Garden Bay we had a blast here. We do not do any city tours we do our own we did similar beach stop in St Thomas. Nassau we do not like stayed on the ship .
The room steward was not good and very standoffish. He was disturbed when we asked for clean sheets and the room always was half clean we seemed to always be missing something like towels and he never put up the pull down bead.
The Mexican restaurant was horrible every thing everyone ordered was UN edible. The guac was the only thing I could stomach,
The local was not as good as Oshehans. There are no more pool tables or dart boards the area is small and packed for the shows below and the food was bad like bad frozen food. No tvs or sports to watch in here either so I did not visit often.,
The folks doing the photos wanting you to purchase right at the dinner table is very rude and tacky. It was a No every time the did this.
No activities for teens like basketball, volleyball or anything out doors. Kids were complaining about that.
The part in the boarding process where they let folks in with disabilities is just bad folks with nothing wrong with them got on board with no disabilities to run to get Vibe passes we all could see them running. All of us with boarding 1 and platinum did not have a chance after that. They should just do a lottery to eliminate this.
The internet was horrible nuff said.
The only unpleasant staff I ran into were 1 pool bartender, photo folks, 1 person at guest services when I had a false charge and 1 dealer in the casino so very minimal.
Any questions on anything let me know
