First time cruiser
The cleanliness on the ship is great as well, the staff is constantly keeping on top of cleaning up dirty tables and they have plenty of people with hand sanitizer as soon as you walk into the buffet or get on or off the ship. I ALWAYS saw someone in the bathroom cleaning. Nothing was dirty about this ship. The staff is VERY friendly, our cabin steward was so personable and nice. He would always say hello every time he saw us and have conversations with us. If we needed something, he was ready to help. I only encountered one waiter that wasnt very personable and that was on our last night in the manhattan room. Entertainment- We saw legends in concert and blue man group. Both were ok, i preferred legends more, prince was the best out of the three. I could of done without seeing blue man. Maybe I just dont get what their act is lol. I read alot of people dont like their pool situation and i do understand where they are coming from. Im not a pool person and do not like to swim so it didnt bother me at all, but there are 2 little pools, which make no sense and don’t give a lot of room for swimming. I always found there were plenty of chairs and loungers to relax on by the pool area. I loved the outdoor area where you could sit and eat or drink, watch the ocean and hear live music being played on deck 15. our room- we had a balcony room and it was not tight at all for 2 people. I found there to be plenty of room, i never felt cramped, i was expecting the room to be small but it was a good size. the bathroom situation was good for us, im not sure why people complain about it. its 2 separate areas, so what? the shower is a nice size, our bed was comfy but i could see why someone who is tall, would find it small, cause their feet would for sure hang off the bed. There is plenty of storage space, its pretty amazing how you can utilize just about every inch in that room and all your stuff be hidden and not laying around to be in your way. Since neither of us had ever cruised before, we were nervous we would be sea sick at some point so we brought a ton of stuff just in case, you cant even feel the ship move, you would never know you were on a ship unless you looked out the window.
Last thing, the reviews on the horrible smoke problem from the casino- I HATE the smell of smoke and am allergic to it, I did not have any problem, I don’t know if a lot of people just didn’t smoke on the ship we were on or Norwegian does a good job at hiding the smell. I don’t remember once being bothered by the smell of cigarettes. I hope this helps anyone who will be cursing on this ship. Less
