Transatlantic, better than flying
Our first impressions of the ship were impressive although that ended when we got into our cabin. The cabin was narrow and the closet was small and without drawers. Having come from a 17 day cruise with both formal and casual wear a lot of the formals stayed in the suitcase under the bead. This ship was made for 7 day cruises in warm weather, and for people that are able to pack for a less formal cruise. The one shining highlight was a shower that you could actually turn around without bashing into the faucet or the safety grab bar.
Most of the cruise was pleasant and the North Atlantic was quiet. We are used to a more sedate form of cruise. There are many choices in dining and entertainment although there seemed to be a lot of extra charges for most of them. The food was good to excellent although there were some start up problems dining was enjoyable. We had a good time and met many wonderful people, both crew and passengers.
Would I sail on this ship or on NCL again?? Probably not. As I said we enjoy a more sedate form of cruise. Less
Cabin review: BB10166 Mid-Ship Balcony Stateroom
Cabin class BB deck 10 #10166. Very narrow about 3 meters. Long enough that there was a couch. The desk had a stool not a chair that had storage underneath. There was a coffee / tea maker in the cabin. The balcony was tiny, about 3 meters wide the same as the cabin, but only 1 meter toward the sea. A cocktail party would be out of the question. The shower was the highlight, roomy and easy to use. There was a step up to the entry of the bathroom that could cause stubbed toes.Read All Mid-Ship Balcony Stateroom (BB) Reviews >>
