After reading the reviews I certainly prepared myself not to have a good time. I was wrong! This was an amazing cruise! The staff gave great service during dining and my stateroom though extremely small was manageable (suitable for 1 person) If you want more room I'd recommend a balcony or a suite if you really want to splurge. I certainly made my money back with the unlimited drink package. I had a drink at breakfast and all during the day. I thought for sure they would be watered down. No in fact I was pleasantly surprised by how orderly the lines are, the bar staff made sure we understood where the line was and they did it very respectfully. With the unlimited package I was expecting a few unruly passengers and only met 2 who should have been cut off, security was present and were not intimidating at all. The entertainment was amazing I did not expect it would be that great on a 4 day cruise! The production quality was comparable with a Broadway production. I really enjoyed the rock and roll show the singers can really belt out a tune. The dancers were amazing the lead dancers are very proficient in their choreography. The food was outstanding! Only an Indian Chef could make the Mexican night food taste like we were South of the Border. He really knows how to season with unique spices. I also appreciated the pairings. Having something chocolate every day assisted me with the few lbs I added. Tyler our Cruise Director and his team were very creative keeping us sufficiently entertained. I don't recall any down time, I always had something fun to look forward to. Thanks to the Captain for changing our itinerary in order that we could enjoy our private island. I'm definitely a Norwegian from this day forward!

Cabin Review

Mid-Ship Inside
Cabin IC 8137
Sorry but the state room was too small. The bathroom was too difficult to maneuver when showering. There is not enough storage space for luggage. If I would have shared the space it would have been too uncomfortable.
