Itinerary: Western Caribbean

This was my first cruise and I spent a lot of time looking at reviews after booking. There were many poor comments of the Norwegian Sea and I was a bit apprehensive. There all full of BS.

The ship is a bit smaller than some other ships I’m told. But it seemed huge to me. There were 1700 onboard and I never felt crowded except on the days at sea when everyone was trying to lay in the sun. The pool was never crowded.

The carpet looked near new and everything was in good shape. The ship was absolutely spotless and is cleaned continually. The crew was excellent and incredibly hardworking.

I am an experienced musician and the musicians onboard were very good. One night there was a black woman they called the “chocolate goddess” that sang blues and jazz and was unbelievably good. I’d pay to see her again.

There was a duo in a lounge that played classic rock. A big band type orchestra and a dance band in another lounge. All were outstanding.

The food was excellent and plentiful.

The ports are fantastic, especially for scuba divers. This is some of the best diving in the world and great for snorkeling too.

I’d love to go on the Sea again. I’ll definitely go Norwegian again. It’s the best vacation I ever had.
