Sail Date: Dec 2016
Cabin: Obstructed Oceanview

This was my second cruise with Norwegian. We went to the cruise terminal in Singapore around 2 PM and had to wait in line for 3.5 hours before we could check in. It was chaos and the people that were doing the boarding were not really qualified. I hear that some people had to wait over 4-5 hours before they could board the ship.

We bought visa for Vietnam since we wanted to go ashore in Phu My (Vietnam). And payed 69 $ per person. Why we could not get these on board is a mystery since this is procedure on other cruise lines.

We ended up staying in Singapore a few more days due to "electrical problems" and some expert had to be flown in. However I later foud out one of the engines broke down and we were not told. Read all about it here :

Cabin Review

Obstructed Oceanview

Cabin OX

The cabin was very clean and was cleaned at least once a day.

For 2 people it was comfortable. There was an extra bunk bed but three people would have been too much. We travel light with only carry-on's and there was enough closet space. Overall a very nice room
