Ship has been updated and so very well presented. My friend and I chose the trip because it was from our local port and returned to the same port. Advertised as four days but really a short cruise of 2 full days at sea to unwind from life. We chose to stay on board one day and enjoy the benefits at the wellness centre. As usual the costs of services were a bit on the high side but well worth it. A feature of the wellness centre was heated lounges near the indoor swimming pool (there was an outside pool). Dining in the restaurant was a pleasure. Food choices was of a high standard and the staff very attentive. My only disappointment was that the food and wines offered did not showcase the local cuisine which is certainly world class (NCL does this extremely well). Embarkation was held up by having to register your credit card before you boarded. This could have been avoided if available when going online to provide details for the trip e.g. travel insurance. Online experience did not mention that it was English power points so unless you read the reviews you may not have realized you needed a power adaptor. Entertainment on 2nd night was an ABBA tribute show. Fast paced and world class. WOW!
