Ship is just renovated cabin with larger shower area. Cabin is always clean! Thanks to our cabin service. Always love flexibility diner restaurants timing with so excellent services they gave to us. Entertaining is marvelous with différents shows but some with same performers. Service are excellent with smiles in their face and minds. Embarkation and disembarkation were smooth as supposed to be. Singapore is very model and clean with many excellent facilities, Bali is beautiful but to many traffic. Love Darwin with manageable small town and large botanical garden. Brisbane is modelly beautiful with rich historical town. My wife love all activities and joined many of them. For the ports and shores are mostly excellent (that’s why I choose this itineraries!) only some required tending in the rough sea but that understandable. Some port is kind of miss and hit but we just site relax on the ship with nice jacuzzi and swimming pool.

I love to go again with Norwegian Cruise in the future with different itineraries since the world has so many wonderful places to visit.

Cabin Review

Inside

Cabin IF

On the deck 4 couple room closed to the elevator. Normal interior cabin but with larger shower area. I think it’s next to ship laundry area caused I can hear some wherpool once in awhile. It’s next to ship service area so you can see crews come in and out from their area while waiting for elevator. But in general is ok and pretty private area and it’s also in the same deck of disembarking to shore.
