PoA ticked the boxes
Would we go again - sure would!
One disappointment was the "Little Italy" restaurant (on which there is a surcharge). Regretablly it was nowhere the standard of food or service that we had in other restaurants. It really did let the side down.
We have a couple of other comments:
1. We think the deck areas could do with some shaded areas (umbrellas?) There are very few spots where one can get a little shelter.
2. We found the sound levels of the live bands, particularly in the pool area to be far too loud More and obtrusive. - to the extent that we sought out quieter places to relax. Maybe the performers need to accept (or be told) this is not a rock concert but more background entertainment.
3. We do wonder why it is necessary to have two separate security checks when returning aboard from shore - plus the ship's own scan of the ship card? It seems a bit of overkill. In general terms the private security guards , presumably employed by NCL, need a few skills in dealing with people in a pleasant manner.
These are minor points but attention to them would enhance the guest experience even more. Less
Cabin review: BA10582 Mid-Ship Balcony
Cabin a little smaller than on other ships on which we've travelled, but we were aware of that before we started, and for a 7 night cruise was perfectly adequate.Read All Mid-Ship Balcony (BA) Reviews >>
