Embarking on the Norwegian Viva was nothing short of a dream come true. I am not the biggest fan of large boats, but from the moment we stepped foot onboard, we were enveloped in an atmosphere of warmth, luxury, and excitement as to what the Viva offered.

Let’s start with the accommodations. Our stateroom was not just a place to rest our heads; it was a sanctuary of comfort and style. The attention to detail in the design, coupled with the plush bedding and stunning ocean views, made every moment spent in our cabin feel like a true escape. The room was larger than your standard stateroom. The bath accommodations were also larger and offered a close-to-full-size shower.

But the real magic of the Norwegian Viva lies in its array of onboard amenities and activities. From a race track to the cozy offerings of the Mandolian spa, you were never without something to do. And if you are a foodie or the cocktail type, you could spend a week on this ship and not partake of all the offerings. From world-class dining options offering a tantalizing array of cuisines to thrilling entertainment showcasing talented performers, boredom is simply not an option aboard the Norwegian Viva. Dietary issues of any kind were acknowledged and honored by the matridees on the ship.

One of the highlights of our cruise was the exceptional service provided by the staff. From the moment we boarded, we were greeted with genuine smiles and impeccable hospitality. Whether it was our cabin steward ensuring our every need was met or the waitstaff at the onboard restaurants going above and beyond to create memorable dining experiences, the level of service surpassed our expectations at every turn.

The Norwegian Viva took us to breathtaking ports of call, allowing us to explore exotic locales and immerse ourselves in different cultures. Our cruise took us to the Caribbean islands of St. Maarten, Tortola, and St. Lucia, just to name a few. The excursions offered to the cruisers were outstanding, and the service to and from the ship was flawless. Whether we were lounging on pristine beaches, exploring historic landmarks, or indulging in local cuisine, each day brought new adventures and unforgettable memories.

In summary, our experience aboard the Norwegian Viva was nothing short of extraordinary. From the luxurious accommodations to the world-class amenities, impeccable service, and unforgettable destinations, every aspect of our cruise exceeded our expectations – so much, in fact, we rebooked ourselves on the same ship early in 2025. If you’re searching for the ultimate getaway that combines relaxation, adventure, and unparalleled luxury, look no further than the Norwegian Viva. This is cruising at its finest, and we can’t wait to set sail again soon!
