We had a great time! We will definitely be doing another cruise with NCL.

Garden Cafe-We ate Breakfast at this restaurant every morning it is your typical buffet. They did have made to order waffles, omelets and eggs (which I liked). I love that you could sit outside or inside. Me and my husband wanted something sweet to eat one night and went to this buffet and they did not have a very good selection of desserts. They have ice cream in this restaurant!! The service was great if you needed anything at all the crew members were more than happy to help.

II Adagio-We ate at this restaurant for lunch on the second day of our cruise (You only have to pay extra for this restaurant for the dinner service) they had pasta and pizza. The highlight of this restaurant was that you could pick out what kind of pasta, sauce (alfredo or marinara) and vegetables that you wanted. I WOULD HAVE NOT PAID FOR DINNER SERVICE! The service was great and very speedy. The pasta and pizza were okay. Crossings Main Dining Room- We ate here on the second night of our cruise I was pleasantly surprised with the food options the food was good. The service was great however slow.

Longboard Bar-We ate at this bar on the third and fourth night of our cruise they have a small menu. I had the wings one night and the chicken strips the second night both items were very good the fries were awesome and the atmosphere was relaxing. The service was great however slow.

We did not go to any of the restaurants that you have to spend extra on.

Our state room number was 8236. I know a lot of people would complain that the rooms were not very big but honestly how much time do you spend in your rooms? The state room was perfect size the room service was awesome. Our room was cleaned twice a day we received new towels when we asked for them. The cleaning crew members were very nice and helpful.

We went to several onboard activities.
-Go to the Information Show. They give you facts about the "SKY" and give you helpful hint on how to get the most out of your vacation.
-Take the Tour of the Ship it is helpful!
-Dancing with the Sky-This was an interactive game where the sky crew members mimicked "Dancing with the Stars".
-BINGO-If you like to play BINGO then you would like this, maybe. Me and my husband love BINGO but after one night of BINGO we decided not to go back. It was priced high and they only had four full games of BINGO per night.
-Art Auction-If you have never been to an Art Auction (like my husband and I) or if you're a veteran this is a great event to attend. Great Art work wonderful Auctioneer (very knowledgeable he was very passionate) and the Art staff Members were amazing. My husband and I will now be doing a lot of more Art Auctions in the future.
-Comedian Show-The comedian on board was very funny and enjoyable the whole family enjoyed his show.
-Liars Club Show-This was an interactive game where three sky crew members had to give a definition to a word and the audience had to decide who was telling the truth and who was not. Very Fun Show!
-Verity Broadway Show-We enjoyed the entertainment that the "Sky Production" put on. My husband was very impressed by the dancing not so much with the singing.
-Game Show at one of the Bars-We went to a Game Show in one of the bars. It was an adult scavenger hunt, we had a lot of fun at this.
-Dance Party-The "Sky" had many dance party's but I only attended one. It was the last dance of the cruise the DJ had a nice array of music and kept the crowd dancing.
-Bands, Pianist, DJ's and other Live Artist-Throughout the ship there were various Bands, Pianist, DJ's and other Live Artist playing music. We would stop and listen when we came across these artist and enjoyed all of them.
-Shopping-We went to the shops on board and bought a few things. Tax free is always nice!!

Grand Bahama (Freeport)-We went to the Straw Market and to the FREE public beach.

Nassau-We went Snorkeling, Fish Fry and to the Beach. The Snorkeling was a little disappointing we did not get to see a lot of ocean sea life. The Fish Fry was worth the walk the food was outstanding. The Beach was FREE!

Great Stirrup Cay-We went Kayaking, enjoyed the Beach BBQ and swam in the Ocean. The Kayaking was awesome we saw more ocean life here than we did snorkeling I would strongly recommend this activity. The BBQ was great and the Beach was perfect. This by far was my favorite island!

We loved this trip. Our other Family members that went with us said that they had been on better cruise trips but for our first cruise it was perfect.
