Sailing in my little pod!!
I enjoyed the experience of my little 'studio'. It was just right for me and once I figured out how to adjust the lights...choice of colors.. I was comfortable. It. The window to the hall stayed closed because the hall light was blue and it didn't agree with the light I had chosen.I heard quite a few complaints but I was happy...except for the long walk 'home'. It felt good to nap in my little cocoon in the afternoon. The living room made it easy to meet other people to talk with and arrange to share time with. There was a cappacchino maker, bar tender and snacks. How about that!!
I would have liked some lectures, but there were none.The Trivia was my favorite thing and thankfully they had it morning and afternoon....silly and fun.I thought the shows were excellent.I went to them all and enjoyed them. Seating was easy and good.As a single, I fitted right in up in front everywhere!! One night, we were told we couldn't have a center table in the Manhattan because we were told More that they were for 'special people'. My friend objected saying WE were special people and who could be more special than we were. Another waitress put us at one of the tables meant for 'special people'. I was amused.
The casino was in the middle of the ship...full of smoke...and difficult to walk through since I'm not a smoker. All in all I had a good time. I would choose a studio again!! It made the solo experience easy and fun!! Less

Cabin review: Norwegian Epic 12543
12543 I loved it!!! but the walk was like a hike to get to living room or anywhere else. I was not allowed to use the exit path for life boat drill that was was printed on the back of my door. I was later told at the desk that because it was a crew's stairway I couldn't use it for the drill but in case of a real emergency I would be allowed to!!! That makes no sense to me!!! Weren't we trying to know what we should do in a real emergency?? I had no idea which way to go after I was turned away from that. I walked about half the length of the ship and then down from 12 to 5th deck and then back half the length of the ship..on the 5th deck. Not a pleasant thought if the ship had been in trouble!!!!!! My little cabin: cozy and nice...temperature control was great....lights rather funky, but OK. I hated to leave it when the cruise was over!!! Oh, across from the snack room (Which wasn"t ready yet)
