Many of the ports such as Athens, Aqaba, Luxor, Haifam, Suez Canal are all bucket list destinations and that's why we picked this cruise. At the main dining room they asked if we wanted to share dinner tables and we met a lot of interesting people that way. The main dining room menu is extensive with more than 10 entree selections and the food especially the fish was always well cooked although I am not as fond of the desserts. The breakfast buffet always had lots of fruit and nuts and the egg/omelet line manageable. The crew is always helpful and cheerful. The entertainment for 21 nights and I missed only 2 was varied and good. Norwegian always had good dance productions. The library has a pretty good selection. The only drawback is deck chairs on deck 7, people put their towels or stuff on the chairs in the morning and they are seldom available and yet seldom used at the same time. They need a system of reservations or something.

Cabin Review

Oceanview Porthole Window

The bathroom layout was good with a privacy door for the toilet. Otherwise fairly standard cruise ship cabin.
