Just came off of the Joy last week and had a great time. It rarely rained and we wore shorts and t-shirts most of the time due to the weather being very nice. I wish it was colder so that the glaciers will comeback.
-There is a 70's party.
-There is a glow night.
-There is Karaoke.
-The pay restaurants were great that we ate at. We did Cagney's twice, The Q, and Le Bistro.
-Had the regular drink package and that was great unless you like spending more on drinks.
Being on a cruise is our highlight, but we also had other highlights when we saw whales (Orca's on an excursion), eagles, seals, and salmon. Another great highlight was that we got to watch the NFL game on the giant screen in H2O on the open water in the day time which was outstanding. Where else can you do that??? The ports were pretty good, but I wish that we did not spend a whole day in Victoria. I would rather do circles on the water to really enjoy the boat one last day. Only one bar per deck was open in Victoria due to Canadian laws. The casino and the shops were closed as well. It was pretty boring after we took off at 10 that night.
Overall, a great trip as usual through NCL and can't wait to do it again. You will have a ball.
