Chose this cruise because it was our first time cruising and wanted to see if we liked it. The overall ship experience was better than I thought. Lineups to board/off board were well managed. Lineups for food or drinks were also very limited. They had a good staff ratio. Our interior room was also very nice. Plenty of room. It was on 10th floor, good location to get to dining & pool area. Our biggest disappointment however was that the Bahama island stop was cancelled due to strong winds. It was actually only about 20 to 30 knots and slight swells but because of the tender system they were concerned for customer safety. THis is not the first time they cancelled this and for a trip with only 2 stops this was very disappointing. They need to find a way to offset this but offering a plan B itinerary if they know winds will be an issue... or find a way to build a dock. If you like sea days then no big deal. But we are active people and don't particularly like sitting around a pool. The food & liquor was good quality. Entertainment was good quality too... much better than all inclusive Mexican resorts! Very professional. Had a comedian for 2 nights. Havana stop went smoothy. We are Canadian and didnt bother with the scare tactic of having to buy a shore excursion from NCL. We spoke to an American who also did her own thing- and it was quite fine. Don't let the boat scare you into one of their pricey trips.

Cabin IF 108
Room was redone. Beds were very comfortable. Plenty of storage. Bathroom tight but we managed. Can't expect more.
