Additional details

Sail Date: Apr 2013

This was a perfect example of how better NOT to introduce past or future (paying!) customers to a new ship or product!!

Boarding did not start till shortly before noon, no explanation why and despite the fact some 2000-3000 passengers were already checked in, waiting to be let on board, hoarded like cattle. Not a good start.

There was absolutely no reception of the passengers. Since it was some sort of an inaugural sailing, well it was the first sailing with paying passengers, one would have at least expected a welcome glass of champagne. No, not with NCL, nothing comes free with them.

Cabin Review

Very small inside cabin, would not reccommend it.
