Great cruise. Parts and excursions were great Price was acceptable Cabin was terrible. End of hallway on 5th floor (5609) Below the kitchen for Magenta dining room. Noise all night. Pans dropping on floor, carts going back forth and banging. Very little sleep Bathroom flooded second night. Repaired and cleaned up quickly. Door at the end of hall was grew entrance. There was smoking on the other side.Every time door was opened smoke came into the hallway and into my room. Told the cabin steward and he said there was nothing he could do about it. Disembarkation was a Chinese fire drill. Shio was 1 1/2 hours late docking in a pouring rain. Having an auction for an upgrade is an insult. I paid enough for the cruise and sailed enough with NCL to get an automatic upgrade. The cost would have been at least $50/person. Whom ever came up with this idea should know I will probably never sail NCL again.

Careful which cabin you get
