We felt the ship was not well organized and activities were average. The Cirque Dreams show was above average but the Burn the Floor and Priscilla Queen of the Desert were sub par and average respectively. The Ship State Room Steward as always are very good and try to treat you like royalty. I just wish he had informed us that of the storage spaces and their locations were in the room. My wife and I didn't realize that the back of the couch opens up until the 2nd day of the cruise and the that their were drawers that pull out from under the couch until the 6th day of the cruise On a scale of one to ten i would give it a 3 - 4 for the cruise. Simple instructions about this and the color coding of the rooms with the port and starboard side of the ship. Even numbered room numbers were color orange and represented the Port side of the ship. The hallways and elevator coloring was orange to match this. This is something I figured out day one and told many people for the first 3 days none of which new and said it would be so much nicer to have know this to start. Tom & Angela - NCL Cruise Fun. (but not so much this time)

Cabin Review

Aft-Facing Balcony
Cabin B1 13280
No one told us there is storage space in the back of the couch. As well as two drawers under the couch. Without this info the cabin was very messy. Also first time we both didn't like an Aft Facing Balcony. Usually these are premium cabins but in this case there is no difference and the engines even on the 13th floor were very loud and vibrated constantly.

Would not recommend this category for this ship! The balcony was the same size as any other balcony - some aft facing balconies on other ships have lounge chairs this one was too small to have a lounge chair Just two regular chairs and a very small side table.
