This was a very good cruise. Weather was super in all ports. A rough patch came up on one sea day, but the ship was stable in strong winds and high waves. Falklands offered a rocky return tender to the ship, but was well worth the visit. Food was good and did not get boring and the service in all restaurants and by the housekeeping staff was friendly and efficient. Entertainment was very good, better than expected both in main theater and in other venues. We upgraded to a suite and it was terrific. Aft facing and the only problem was noise from the thrusters when they were in use. Among the specialty restaurants the steakhouse was the best. The buffet had a large selection and the main dining rooms were welcoming and featured fast service. Highly recommend the itinerary, though the cruise does cover a lot of ground. Used NCL for shore excursions in some locales and they all had good guides and interesting activities. Could improve enrichment speaker and have more info for ports, such as maps and summaries.

Great Weather, Great Service

Cabin Review

Penthouse with Balcony
Cabin SE 8277
Lots of room for lounging and for putting away our clothes. Spoiled us for any future cruise in a normal cabin. Two TVs and a jacuzzi. Had essentially two rooms and a balcony with 2 lounge chairs and two regular chairs. Were treated like royalty. Only issue was noise from the aft thrusters when in use, mostly in ports. Beds were excellent.
