Sail Date: May 2018
Cabin: Obstructed Oceanview

This was the least favorite of my 4 NCL cruises (16 cruises total). This ship needs refurb. The carpets in the rooms are terrible. Some of the bad:

-Food was cold or cool almost 50% of the time in the MDR.

-How many times did the matre d’ speak to us? Zero. In 21 days. But he visited the table next to us nightly.

Cabin Review

Obstructed Oceanview

Cabin OK

Awful. This room is obstructed and actually has a nice view. But the lifeboat is on a beam/platform outside the window. And crew can walk there. So you have to keep the drapes closed. And the room is above the Fyzz lounge. So super loud noice from 4 pm until after midnight.
