Originally chose this cruise when it was listed as being a transatlantic from Copenhagen to Tampa. When NCL cancelled that itinerary we decided to go with the new one when NCL agreed to honor our original booking. We were totally spoiled as we (5 of us) had one of the Garden Villas. This was an unforgettable experience. Therefore, everything on the cruise was excellent for us. None of us had ever been on a NCL ship before but had read great reviews of the ¨suite¨experience that NCL provides. Those positive reviews are certainly seconded by us. We found the public areas to be well maintained and very attractive. We ate in most of the dining venues and overall enjoyed the food and the service. We attended some of the evening theatre performances and enjoyed them. We would have liked some lectures on the various ports which some other cruise lines provide. Overall, a wonderful cruise.
The Garden Villas are spectacular. The living room is huge with large glass dining table, piano (self playing), large couch, beautiful bar etc. It obviously was recently refurbished. The 3 bedrooms were large and very comfortable. Two of them had huge bathrooms. The beds could not have been more comfortable. The service from the room attendant, the butler and the concierge was exceptional. The outside area was 4,000 plus square feet with hot tub, and steam room. The Garden Villa experience will never be forgotten.
Some very beautiful buildings. Guide very enthusiastic.
