Norwegian Cruise Lines overdid themselves this time with this class of ships. Starting with the embarkation which was the smoothest I have ever had. 10 minutes tops. Disembarkation was equally smooth..The staff has that down to a science.. I have been on 24 cruises over 7 different cruise lines and Norwegian wins hands down. Went to the Eastern Caribbean this cruise... Let me explain why..First the ship is magnificent. Large but yet not crowded. We never waited in line for anything. With 29 restaurants and dine anytime, lines are a thing of the past. So much to do on the ship from games in the lounges, to bowling, water parks, Spa, different bars, casino etc.. Cabins were very spacious..I suggest for 100.00 more than a balcony, get a mini suite. Bathroom is huge, room bigger and location is mid ship close to everything...Dining, we ate at several specialty restaurants including Cagey's steak house, Italian, French and Asian. All were free as my travel agent threw in all specialty restaurants, drink package, internet package and free gratuities....Entertainment was very good. We went to the comedy club, the headliners show. There were other shows we could go to but we stayed busy the whole trip. A typical day was up at 7 had breakfast delivered to our room sat out on the balcony and ate and watched people come and go at the port. After a shower we departed the boat at 10 am missing the crowds, and toured the city and shopped. Ate lunch in port and returned to the ship at 4:30 pm, showered and went to dinner at 6 pm and after dinner we didn't see the room until after midnight. So much to do you have to go on the cruise again. We are going on the Western Caribbean in 2 months same ship, so much to see and do that we missed on this cruise.. Service was the best I have ever seen. Everyone had a greeting and a smile on their face all the time. I give this cruise top marks...

Cabin Review

Mid-ship Mini-Suite with Balcony
Cabin MA 15212
very spacious with a bathroom to die for when comparing other ships bathrooms. Shower was huge with rain shower head and jets that massage your whole body.. Room slightly larger than regular balcony rooms. The Mini Suite is well worth the extra 100.00 for the week.
