Sail Date: Oct 2017
Cabin: Oceanview Porthole Window

Chose this cruise because we had never sailed with Norwegian and thought we would give them a try. Well, never again. The food is deplorable and needs to be revamped with more american choices. The buffet is a go to spot if there is nothing of interest in the free styling restaurants. We did not choose to spend even more money on the restaurants that charge for meals. We bid on an upgraded cabin only to find out we were all the down into the bowels of the ship where we heard every noise possible. Tried to change the cabin back to the original cabin and were told the cruise was sold out and the cabin upgrades are final and non refundable. The shore excursions were just okay and nothing great. We went to the Acadia National Park and it was a bus ride without the opportunity to stop and take pictures until the very end. Sorely disappointed with the overall cruise. Will not take another Norwegian Cruise ever.

Cabin Review

Oceanview Porthole Window

Cabin OG

The cabin was bin for an upgrade and did not want a cabin that was in the bowel of the ship and that is what we got. The cabins once bid for and received are not refundable and are final.

Port Reviews

Quebec City

Loved Quebec City and all the fall colors which was the purpose of the cruise. We were here for two days before taking off.

Bar Harbor

We were here many years ago and enjoyed the visit back here. Loved the lobster rolls and blueberry pie
