Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Feb 2019
  • Destination: the Western Caribbean
  • Cabin Type: Aft-Facing Balcony

This was my sixth cruise second time with Norwegian and my 30th wedding anniversary, I understand that up keeping on a vessel is necessary but arc welding and grinding off tie downs that were in the wrong place on the deck and closures of areas on the pool deck, very inconvenient. The specialty restaurants we did was La Cucina, Cagney's Steakhouse and Teppanyaki. All three were excellent. We also did the cirque dreams epicurean dinner , we enjoyed that show. Burn the flood was good, the comedians were funny, did not like Priscilla queen of the desert, Howl at the moon was also good. Buffets are buffets, the food so so. The bar tenders Won't make a frozen rum runner, but the drink package came in handy. Here is a good tip take the elevator on deck 15 outside the buffets up to deck 18 where there is padded deck chairs and hardly anyone around walk up to the front and enjoy. Wished we found that earlier in the trip.

I don't understand why they don't have music in H20 during the day they have a big screen showing diving spots of the world.

Wife did a few spa treatments she was happy with that. Not sure about doing that big of a ship again. Or at least that one, Port Canaveral is very easy on and off the ship. When getting off the ship Use the porters to get you and your bags to the front at customs. It's worth the tip.

Cabin Review

Aft-Facing Balcony
Cabin B1 12316

Small, no bathroom, WAIT...... if you close the curtain at the front door area, that is the bathroom.... two people can't even walk by each other, bring an extra plug or something for charging your devices there is only one plug. You feel every rotation of the propeller. the vibrations from coming into port and Turing the vessel was a jarring if you were sleeping and most of the time we were pulling in port early morning hours. The room steward was ok, only got a few towel animals, Coffee and continental breakfast is free. If you order anything hot is a $7.95 charge.

we ordered continental every morning and had coffee on the small balcony. Would have been nice if you could lay out back there.
