Sail Date: Jun 2014
Cabin:

Having cruised many times, this was our first cruise with Norwegian. And since it was our anniversary, we splurged a bit. We stayed in a mini suite, and got the ultimate dining package, along with having nice excursions in each port.

ROOM

The room was great. I'm pretty big, 6'3" 270lbs, and the bathrooms are always a bit tight, but that is the case on other cruise lines I've sailed as well. I do wish the room was a bit wider, I would have gladly sacrificed depth for an extra foot of width on the room, the space between the bed and the side wall was narrow. That being said, the balcony was spacious, the sitting area was big, and we had plenty of space to spread out.

The TV was in an inconvenient location for viewing from the bed, and the remote didn't work well from that angle, but we weren't on a cruise to watch TV, and rarely turned it on.
