Chose for price and ports. Had never cruised NCL was unsure of free dinning. We had good food and service, but missed the individual every night special care. The one problem was smell of smoke through decks 6,7&8. The casino was next to atrium so smoke smell drifted between those decks. Love the singing staff. They really brightened the day. Also liked and made me smile "washy, washy, happy, happy. Would not open balcony divider. Special meal chef was wonderful once we figured out how to reach him. Comedians were good and had lots of shows so you didn't have to wait in long lines. Felt the cruise line were quite organized we rarely had to wait to get off at each port. When drinks are a perk you should not have to pay $428 in gratuities, seems unreasonable to us. Overall we enjoyed the trip. We traveled with 4 other people.

Not a fan of free dining

Cabin Review

Family Balcony Stateroom
Cabin B4 12842
Christian was so nice and took great care of us.
Didn't like that the balcony divider between our friends and us would not be opened.
Still do towel animals enjoyed that. No chocolates.
