Cabin: Balcony

This might be a little long, but it's in segments so you can skip a lot if you want. This was our 3rd time on NCL and my mothers 1st. We are 48, 51 and she is 75. We left on Thursday and stayed at Days Hotel for the free shuttle. Friday did the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. Jersey side has smaller groups than the NY side. Saturday took a shuttle to Newark Airport to NY on Newark Liberty shuttle $15 round trip (seniors/disable) $25 reg. Did the Empire State building, then did Gray Line Bus Hop On/Off tour. Saw everything we wanted (&didn't want) to see and ready for the laid back cruise! Way to many people in NY!

EMBARKATION: Got to port @ 11:30am and on the boat by 12:10pm very easy. Went right to our room to drop off our carry ons and off to check out the ship & EAT! Ate at Raffles and by 1:15pm the rest of our luggage were at the room. Drill was @ 3:30pm and left at 4pm. Sailed pass the Statue of Liberty on the starboard side. Ate to late for 1st show "Home Free" but saw the last song and they sounded GREAT!

CABIN: Balcony BA, standard room, no fridge, coffee maker, hair dryer, 2 electrical outlets, safe, sofa pulled out to a double bed-absolutely no room when pulled out!- soap and shampoo dispenser in the shower, soap dispenser on the sink, shoe mit and bottle of lotion. There were towels for only 2 people, but let the cabin stewards know and boom we had more-They were GREAT! Lots of storage room, lots of hangers, and 2 robes. TV Channels: FOX News, CNN, ESPN, Cartoon Network, TNT, TCM= No local channels, nbc,cbs, or abc!
