We joined the ship in civitaveccia very easy to get the train from rome termini short walk to shuttle buses,the cabin was ready by 1 pm very easy check in.
First port Alanya very easy to walk around plenty to see if you dont do a trip,Limassol next again walk off and local buses very good.
In Israel we used GTI guided tours Israel cannot praise them highly enough they get very good critics the guide Mickey was passionate to show you as much as possible and with using small buses they access the sites much better especially as we were ther the same two days as the US president.
theay are much better value than the ship tours and cover more ,Israel was the highlight of our trip must do trips.
On the whole we find NCL food good and the staff are friendly they are accused of being nickel and dime but they dont make you buy all the extras !!
Cabin clean fridge handy and the entertainment was very good,the ship was quiet and stable they could do more on port talks and do a bit more at sea entertainment
Will criuse with NCL again Paul Lewis
