Second and last NCL Disappointment - Bye-bye NCL
The cabins were by far the smallest I've ever experienced on a cruise. The Aft balcony we had was a More micro balcony in comparison to RCCL and Carnival and Holland. The shower in our aft balcony room was barely large enough to successfully shower in (and I'm 5'3", 130lbs!).
Service aboard was barely passable in general, most of the main dining room service was much less than I'd expect to find at an average restaurant at home, Bistro was better, more like what I'm used to onboard in a main dining room - but it came with an upcharge. In general the service felt uncaring at best, a far cry from what I've experienced in my 12+ cruises over the last 20 years on several different lines and in several different catagories. No phone numbers for most ship departments, no phone dialing instructions in cabin so was calling rooms getting no answer, the third day was finally informed that we needed to dial "0" before the cabin number; the guest services phone went mostly unanswered, requiring us to walk to the desk and get in line for even minor questions/concerns. Just subpar service all the way around.
From now on I won't consider NCL as an option for my future cruises, there's so much better out there in the form of RCCL, Holland America and even Carnival. Bye-bye NCL. Less
Cabin review: B19076 Aft-Facing Balcony
Aft Balcony Cabin 9076: Tiny, tiny, tiny. Cracked lampshades, debris left by prior guests in cabin still there upon our arrival; the balcony advertised as "larger" was barely large enough for 2, tiniest I've ever had. We had maybe 6-8 inches between the foot of the bed and the wall to walk around the bed. The shower was extremely small, I barely fit and able to turn around and I'm no large person (5'3", 130lbs).Read All Aft-Facing Balcony (B1) Reviews >>
