Sail Date: May 2019
Cabin: Mid-Ship Balcony

This is my third cruise ever and first with NCL. Had high hopes and expectations after only cruising with Carnival in the past. This cruise went to Key West, FL and Havana, Cuba. IMPORTANT to know…This is touted as one day in Key West and two days in Havana, IT IS NOT. Having left port at 4 pm on Sunday, it arrived at Key West at 1pm on Monday and we were to be back on the boat by 6pm to set sail at 7. Arriving in Havana at 7 am we were to be back on the ship by 5 am the next day for a 7 am departure toward home. Plan accordingly. We thought we had two full days in Havana and were disappointed.

Orlando to Port Canaveral: Shuttles are good, UBER is the way to go. If you have 4 people and luggage get an XL Uber.

Stay at the Radison Resort at Port Canaveral if you are arriving a day early. Not in walking distance of too many food choices, but Uber is everywhere down there and cheap to eating destinations.

Cabin Review

Mid-Ship Balcony

Cabin BA

Our rooms (on the 10th deck, port side balcony) were really comfortable. They were cleaned once a day and our bed was made up mid-morning and turned down in the evening. Shower had a lot of pressure and temperature easily adjusted. CAREFUL! Because you can easily go too far towards HOT and it is scalding. They have warning signs, but if you have children, don’t let them mess with the shower knob.
