Cabin: Family Mini-Suite with Balcony

I chose this cruise because my husband and I had a lovely experience with a Transatlantic crossing on the NCL Star in 2013. Bad choice!

The ship's decor is lovely, not garish and over the top like some cruise lines. The downside is that on a cooler weather cruise, without outdoor activities, the public areas can't accommodate the amount of people onboard. There were almost always waits to eat, even at O'Sheehans. The buffet was always packed, and the atrium, where most activities took place was way too small. Also, the noise from whatever was going on in the atrium carried all over the other public areas and was very annoying, especially in O'Sheehans. I don't know why they didn't utilize the theater during the day for some of these activities.

Our mini suite was nice, a bit small to use the word suite, but it served our needs well. However, our cabin steward was very unfriendly and unhelpful. I always give cabin stewards a large extra tip because I know how hard they work, but this person got nothing because he deserved nothing.

Nice room, a bit too small to be considered a suite in my opinion but we were comfortable.
