We chose this cruise because of the price, destinations, length, and perks. Traveling from Miami to Denmark, with all you can drink and 4 specialty restaurants, for $93 per person per night is incredible! We did miss a port due to weather and another due to mechanical issues on the ship, but the cruise line seemed to try to work with us to make it right. The crew members were friendly and helpful. I hadn't been on NCL for over 5 years, but it really seemed they have upped their game since the last time.

Some of the pros with Norwegian - beverage and specialty restaurants included. A lot of variety in places to eat. When you are on the ship for 16 days, it helps to have options. O'Sheehans was awesome - nice place to have drinks, a quick meal, and the daily specials were great too. Some nights we just didn't want to go to a sit down restaurant and we've never been a fan of buffets. This was a great alternative for us. Reuben and Fish and Chips were great. Good variety of slot machines and the entertainment in the Atrium and common areas was quite enjoyable and lighthearted. The itinerary was superb, even though we had to miss 2 ports.

Cons were that water should be included as well as specialty coffee's. Our favorite line includes these at no extra charge. At a stated rate of $79 per day per person for beverages, I'm thinking you could at least provide a 25 cent bottle of water when you give me $14 alcoholic beverages any time I ask. Same goes for the iced coffee and latte. And don't even think I would pay you $1.50 for a cupcake at the coffee bar. Again, these should be a free snack. We are not big drinkers but the variety of alcohol was incredible - especially the different types of beer! Need a bigger TV and variety of shows in the room. Again, when you are on a boat for that length of time, you do spend some time in the room. The minimum channels you had started looping after two days - need to step up the game here.

Cabin Review

Balcony Stateroom

Cabin BD

Nice size room. Really need a bigger TV and remove the items from the mini bar. Would be nice to have some type of chair to sit in when doing hair and make up. Bathroom was actually a decent size. Liked having the couch. Balcony was pretty tight. Loved having the coffee maker in the room.
