My husband and I are avid cruisers. This was our 23rd cruise, our second with NCL.
I was very hesitant to go on another NCL cruise because my first experience (2006) was not that great. However, NCL was offering great deals, so my we decided to book at the last minute, and I am glad we did. Our incentives included a free Ultimate Beverage Package and $100 shipboard credit. It was too good to pass up!
Embarkation: We live very close to the cruise terminal, so we had friends drop us off. We arrived around 11 AM and by noon we had dropped our bags in our cabin and were sitting by the pool. The weather was a little dreary, but still warm/dry enough to hang out.
We were assigned cabin 8100, which is an ocean view cabin with an obstructive view. The cabin happen to be equipped for the disabled, which made our bathroom slightly larger than the normal ocean view cabin which was a plus.
