Sail Date: Jan 2019
Cabin: Mid-Ship Balcony Stateroom

This is a large ship, but the design is great, making it very easy to get around. I have been on 12 cruises and many ships are chopped up and elevators banks don't always go to all floors, but this was the exception.


Bathrooms good size. Typical cabin size. Typical small balcony with two erect chairs. There are really no larger balconies until you pay for a suite or huge price. We are Gold status Norwegian and supposedly were upgraded to floor 9, but i'm not sure except for a bottle of wine, what the Gold status upgrade might have been. A drink at a cocktail party and a reduced rate for laundry service. Cabin was not any larger nor the balcony, so people who have sailed 8 times with Norwegian, don't expect a better room.

Cabin Review

Mid-Ship Balcony Stateroom

Cabin BB

Average Cabin. Great Room Steward, Swifty. Always clean, ice in bucket and never intrusive.

Port Reviews

Harvest Caye

Great private island. Didn't mind paying for food and drink since umbrellas and chairs were free. Loved the pool!!! Best stop of all with the paddle boarding, zip lining, swimming etc.
