Sail Date: Nov 2018
Cabin: Mid-Ship Balcony

We took this cruise because of the extras offered by NCL. I think there were 17 bars and many restaurants. I was ready to be disappointed because of the number of passengers 4100 thinking that service would be slow. Not! The bartenders were already making the drinks before we were seated. The dining was not up to par, seemed the staff were overwhelmed and not enough help. The Matradee was very helpful on several occasions to solve any issues at the table. We always joined others who we did not know and some were more fussy than others. The food was very average but way to much on the plates. I don't need 10 pieces of bacon with two eggs.

The steak house was the best. The filet 8 oz just fell apart, no knife needed. Bar service was instant and servers were always around.

Room was the smallest we ever had, balcony was good size but needed two tables as one 12 inch was insufficient for two people.

Cabin Review

Mid-Ship Balcony

Cabin BC

Super small. Toilet area was so small that you needed to drop pants before you got inside stall. Room steward was outstanding. TV had CNN and MSNBC and Fox. One sports channel which is great if you like soccer.
