EXPLORER CRUISE WITH FAMILY
Lunch was in the Windjammer only, they should also serve in one of the dining rooms also as NCL does to avoid too much craziness at the buffet. Tough finding tables once it got crowded.
We sailed with a lot of family members so our week was never boring. Our stateroom was a Balcony on deck 7, great location near the promenade. Elevators were crowded and slow much of the time, always when trying to get to the More dining room. Our stateroom was always clean but we really didn't see our room steward very much and only got 3 nights of towel animals! (:))
The food I must say could have had more of a selection. I remember liking NCL food better. The hashbrowns for breakfast in the dining room had no taste. Our waiter Amanda, and assistant waiter Camilla were wonderful! Amanda, hope you're having a wonderful time at home!
Never a problem finding a chair up on deck 12. I don't like to sit right ON the pool deck because it's always congested so deck 12 was very nice.
Entertainment was better than I remember 5 years ago. LOVED Home Free, one of the Headliner acts on board during our cruise.
Dinner time at 6 was fine although I do prefer NCL freestyle dining to set times.
LOVE the Royal Promenade with the bars, cafe and shops. I love this to people watch. I wish NCL had these on their ships.
Generally I am not a fussy cruiser so I thoroughly enjoyed myself. The ship is due for a refurbish but it didn't ruin my time or my son's, whatsoever. Less
Cabin review: E27274 Deluxe Oceanview Stateroom with Balcony
7274 could use a balcony overhall. rusted around the sliding glass door on the outside. Didn't really like how the wall comes part of the way up and then the window starts. Would much rather have the entire balcony wall looking out be a window. Room is a very good size, TV could be updated. The sofa did have a loose arm, on the side of the beds.Read All Deluxe Oceanview Stateroom with Balcony (E2) Reviews >>
