Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Mar 2017
  • Destination: the Mexican Riviera
  • Cabin Type: Mid-Ship Oceanview Porthole Window

The cruise agent had really good pricing at amenities at the time, as well as the incentives to book early.

I read her on the reviews that this ship as "worn" or "dated"... nothing is farther from the truth...I understand if you regularly check in to the Ritz Carlton or the Waldorf Astoria, or take Asmara or Viking regularly you are going to be disappointed. But the bargain for the buck is here with Norwegian!

Nice professional staff, quiet-non jiggly room and a really comfortable bed. The cleanliness of the room was remarkable.

The main hit, in my opinion was the fantastic food and service. Don't miss Cagney's or Teppanyaki. Le Bistro food and restaurant ambiance was not to my liking... being a dark place and the just OK tastiness of the food.

The breakfast and lunch buffet was just great....A great staff to meet you needs, the variety of foods..great tasting coffee... really started your day on the right foot. The entertainment options were just great....

I have cruised in the past, but nothing compares to the value and quality of this ship and cruise line...

Cabin Review

Mid-Ship Oceanview Porthole Window
Cabin OF 4588

Our Steward, Mel was very quiet... Everything was well set up... we never knew he was even around. bed turned down at night, always fresh towels....I know the TV had only a few channels, but met out needs when we retired for the evening....and the big thing..

If you have been told to just book a balcony, save your money and get an Oceanview or Inside Cabin room, as you really only are in your room for a small percentage of the day....


Some cruise rooms have had noticable vibration or bad location, but not this one..
