Mexican Riviera followed by Pacific Coastal
It was our second cruise with NCL and overall. We have combined a Mexican Riviera with a repositioning to Vancouver, and had a wonderful 10 days cruise.
We loved the ship: significant size therefore very spacious, clean, very well marked, friendly and helpful staff, nice shore excursions.
Although we sailed before its refurbishing in 2010, we enjoyed very much and didn't have any significant complaints.
The highlight was Tex-Mex restaurant in the atrium area, a feast of flavours and exceptional service, and the last but not the least complimentary. Unfortunately it was closed and eventually replaced with another one, fee charged.
Honestly this is a trend I am not really happy about it.There's more and more speciality restaurants with a fee between 5 to 20 or even 25 dollars.
The room was perfect, had a balcony, even if we didn't have the chance to linger too long on the chaises longues( partial because we were either on the shore or at the pool, or because it was windy while sailing). Since then, we decided to take an inside room, at an upper deck and the difference to spend on shore activities.
We were a bit dissapointed by the disembarkation process in Vancouver. It was very slow and ill conducted.
At the end of the day the cruise was very relaxing and brought us nice memories.
