…Great Outdoor Restaurant was crowded with a sold out cruise, go early go late, or just do the dining room thing. The food was pretty good with plenty of choices. The ribs are not something you want to miss, barbecued to perfection outside on the biggest Webers you’ll see! If it is just too crowed for you, use the dining rooms and the fare is top notch. The culinary experience in the dining rooms very pleasing, I did the two entree thing and found all beef dishes were excellent, stay away from the skewered lamb, get the lamb at lunch, and the lobster is a must order! Le bistro was also excellent and we had table #2, all glass view of the Caribbean. It is a table for four and we sat at said good-bye to St Thomas feasting on filet mignon! It was well worth the $5 dollar per person gratuity. The room service food was pretty good with the pizza getting high marks and the grilled cheese falling into the not so category.

The reggae band on the pool deck was first class and we danced to the Soca tunes till the band finally gave up! The jazz group in the Club International was big city quality and the room was an art deco treasure. Dazzles Disco was a big party hit for the younger crowd! I did not attend any of the show productions but heard only good things. The hockey events were hosted by ESPN announcer Darren Pang.  He got to introduce NHL Hall of Fame players  Gump Worsley, Yvan Cournoyer, and Brad Park. The four on four tourney was fun and the Panger Kid game was the best.  A sudden death game watching NHL’ers as teammates with ten-year-old kids was fun.  Many NHL players did not make the sailing and that was disappointing.

The fitness studio on board was well equipped – Cybex, treadmills and cross trainers.  There was a good variety of fitness classes offered each day (to work off some of the food we ate) – if you participated in ten fitness activities, you won a  ‘Sports Afloat’ T-shirt.  Each day they had a mile walk around the ship (approx. 3 – ¾ times around was a mile) – I can’t think of a more beautiful place to walk a mile, Caribbean waters in all directions!!! 

The SS Norway is a ship not to be missed by novice cruisers and cruise addicts alike. She is in great shape, well maintained, and tribute to day’s gone by.
