The 7-night cruise on the Norwegian start departed New York on a Sunday, passing by a firefighter salute from a NY fire boat, and under the Verazano Narrows Bridge. We had good sailing and excellent weather en route.
We carried on our luggage and were able to board within 45 minutes of going through security. We went directly to the buffet for lunch and soon our deck was announced as being ready to accept passengers to state rooms.
Our inside state room was clean and neat. It comfortably fit two people, though the travel agency and cruise line claim in can fit up to four (with a roll out bed and a bunk style bed that folds down from the wall). Any more than two adults would have been a huge challenge logistically, in my opinion. An inside state room is a budget option, and space is limited.
