Seven day cruise to Mexico and Roatan. Very nice ship with well organized staff. I have been on all major cruise lines including Regency and Queen Mary 2. NCL is my favorite for the kids club, and great staff. Costa Mya was a waste, Do Not take dune buggy excursion. Long trip, break downs, dangerous vehicles, seat belts don't really work and destination beach was full of trash including the water. They were giving people 20% refunds because of the complaints. Cozumel off road vehicle excursion was outstanding, included a swim in a cave. NOW the reason that I would never take this ship again and would recommend that you avoid it. The rooms are the smallest that I have ever been in by far. In an effort to pack as many rooms as possible they basically eliminated the bathroom. When you enter room there is a small shower on left and small toilet on right with the sink being in room. The way they get two double beds is to separate the full bed by about two inches, which is as far as it can go. Folks who were just friends were complaining about basically being in the bed with their cabin mate. Whoever designed the toilet area went very very wrong. It was like going to the bathroom with the toilet free standing in the middle of the room. The sink is it the room and when you use it water splashed all over the floor and counter. And those looking for a quiet place to relax and read, skip this ship.

Food was great. All kinds of whatever you might want.

The worst arrangement in my cruising experience. Too small and the worst and most uncomfortable toilet privacy that I've experienced by far. For such a small room they did cram in many storage spaces. Did not find some until cruise was almost over. Check coach backs, and under coach.

The entertainment was the best ever. Blue Man Group, Legends concert and one of the best Blues Bands that we have ever heard on or off ship. We found ourselves snuggling up in a corner and watching the lead guitarist blow our minds!!!

Stay away from Dune Buggy excursion Costa Maya and don't miss off road vehicle trip to cave swim in Cozumel.
