INTRO

Despite the fact that our NCL cruise to Mexico in 2008 on the Star still ranked the worst of our 14 cruises to date, we decided to give NCL another try due to price and convenience on a round trip to Alaska out of Seattle where we live. We traveled with my brother and SIL and I am happy to report that overall, we had an excellent experience. We started by booking an inside and ended up in a mini-suite due to price changes and calling NCL to change cabins. Brother and SIL kept their inside cabin.

Cabin Review

Mid-Ship Mini-Suite with Balcony

Cabin MA

Loved the one cup coffee maker and curtain that could be pulled between the bed and the couch/tv area. Didn't have much use for the bath but the larger shower nice. Beware deck 11 as you are under the pool deck and may hear chairs being dragged on the deck above you when you are on your balcony. I would not pay extra for this over a regular balcony cabin.
