Another fine cruise in S.T.Y.L.E.
Destination: Western Caribbean
The ship is grand. Like a Vegas resort. You have 2,000 rooms, multiple show & restaurant venues, spa, water park, heath club, etc.
We started with a spa balcony, but were able to upgrade on the 2nd day to a suite.
Being suite passengers, we were graced with a separate dining area, lounge & pool than the other guests. The food was surely top quality. We did also eat in the Garden Cafe Buffet which actually had 6 omelette stations plus so much more. Surely the largest buffet I've seen on a ship. My wife especially was fond of the presentation which was More cleaner than others we've seen. Portions were displayed smaller & refilled constantly. There were not large chaffing dishes displayed like troughs on a farm. We also ate at 'pay' restaurants Shanghi, Cagney's steak & L'Bistro. All excellent & worth the extra $$$.
The ship also offers entrance to the spa for a fee & a 'posh' deck to beat the crowds to sun bathe.
All shows were great & a great variance from the typical ship entertainment.
Casino was a little smokey, but then, all are.
Bottom line, sure there a many upcharges, but the cruise price is less than most. Add the extras & the costs, you still are reasonable compared to others & have top shelf everything. Treat the staff properly & you will be rewarded with awesome service. Remember the staff are paid to provide a service not to be servants! Trust me, even the worst we've ever experienced on a ship is still better that what we encounter in the states daily.
this ship has certainly brought NCL into the next stage. A must to go on! Less
Cabin review: H612318 Aft-Facing Penthouse with Balcony
1st cabin was a balcony cabin. interesting shape with the 'wave'. Loved the pods for the toilet & shower. Nice to sit while not offending the wife in the shower. Ample storage with drawers & closet space. moved to a penthouse suite which had lots of storage. 2 hanging closets, many, many drawers. We didn't come close to using all storage. Suite also had a tub, adjustable lighting & toilette pod also had motion sensor to turn light on in dark. Large Lavazza capucino/expresso machine. Flat screen TV with separate DVD player.Read All Aft-Facing Penthouse with Balcony (H6) Reviews >>
