Sail Date: Feb 2010
Cabin: Mid-Ship Mini-Suite with Balcony

About Us: This was a last-minute decision made to get us out of the Midwestern winter for a week. We are baby boomers, married couple, and this was our 11Th cruise...all have been with NCL. We started cruising in June 2002, fell in love with cruising, and especially find the flexibility/freedom of Freestyle cruising perfect for us.

Air fare was bloody expensive..last minute. We flew in night before cruise to FLL and had prearranged transportation shuttle with SAS. We'd used them the past 3 cruises and find them prompt, polite, providing clean, nice vans and paid $15.00 per person from FLL to our Miami Hotel. We were in communication with them by phone as the plane landed...so easy. (Also used them going home from POM to FLL airport for the same rate. Highly recommend.

One night pre-cruise at Miami Hyatt downtown..Very large, clean room overlooking front of facility. I named my own price and got a deal. Nice breakfast buffet that also included made-to order omlettes, coffee and fresh orange juice for about $36 for two. Excelllent service. Much better than the one we had in October at the Intercontinental. Courteous staff. No surprises on our bill at check out.

Cabin Review

Mid-Ship Mini-Suite with Balcony

Cabin MA

11046, deck 11, forward, starboard. Mini-suite. Nice balcony. Quiet location, heard no noise from above, below, from adjoining rooms, or from the hall. Had bath tub with glass-enclosed shower. Lots of storage. Closet was in awkward position next to the bed, but we knew that ahead of time. Good hairdryer, magnifying vanity mirror, fridge, coffee maker.
