NCL Sun Nov 14-15, 2012
Destination: Southern Caribbean
Had not been to 4 of 5 ports, which was major reason for booking. Booked the "3 specialty restaurants" deal. Italian was OK for me (wife did NOT like!); French was very good; & the Steak was Great, as usual!
Took several excursions....if u don't like street vendors, beggars, etc., DO NOT get off the ship in Cartagena! They are everywhere! Had good to great times there anyway....same in Aruba, Curacao, St. Maarten, & St. Thomas.
Crew not quite as good as March trip (new Captain...only saw at the Latitudes "stuff," unlike previous Capt, who we saw every day!) Saw ALL top More Officers EVERY day, which is exceptional...none were afraid to pick up stuff on the floor, bus tables, etc. Great bar waiters & restaurant staff. Room steward was fantastic, but couldn't control the water on balcony....couldn't use 75% of the time on an 11 day trip! He used a squegee constantly, but a stuck drain somewhere behind us would just load it back up again....might as well had an inside or oceanview! Less
Cabin review: BA10260 Mid-Ship Balcony
Our balcony was toward the rear (aft) of the ship & had a "stopped drain" somewhere behind us (starboard side)....had up to 1" of water on balcony 75% of the ENTIRE cruise! Room steward was heroic.....trying to "squegee" off water 3-4-5 times a day, to no avail. Couldn't/didn't use most of the time...really was unacceptable.Read All Mid-Ship Balcony (BA) Reviews >>
