Itinerary was excellent. Two days in Israel and some other ports of call that are attractive in different ways that were easily accessible. That was the main attraction. The ship was old but looked well cared for. The sailing was very smooth and cabin comfortable if a little lacking in storage capacity. We found the ship's staff to be friendly and efficient and the ship to be very clean. We had a 5 meal speciality restaurant package as part of the deal so we were able to sample them as well as the main restaurants. I enjoyed the food everywhere but we would have liked the opportunity to share a larger table sometimes. The drinks seemed expensive but as we we also got a drinks package it did not affect us. We had a private small group tour each day in Haifa with Guided Tours Israel. That was an excellent choice! On reflection would we sail with NCL again? Yes!

How else could you get a short visit to the Holy Land?

Cabin Review

Balcony
Cabin BX 10528
Comfortable bed but lack of space for clothes. The bathroom is small but the reason given is that the ship was designed for smaller passengers. Adequate for two people but would be a struggle for three.
