Sail Date: Jun 2019
Cabin: Inside

We left for our cruise about four days after the executive order that trips to Cuba are no longer allowed. NCL took a while to announce what our new itinerary would be and what our discounts would be, but we were very pleased with the information when it was announced.

We were originally supposed to do Cuba overnight, a day at sea, then Great Stirrup Cay. They replaced the Cuba days with Freeport and Nassau. We have cruised royal and Disney several times each, and this was our first NCL trip. We selected it for Cuba, but were determined to make the best of the trip regardless of the change.

The ship itself was small, which we were expecting. The decor was nice and not garish. The layout to get to the Crossings dining room was awkward but we eventually got the hang of it. The feel was relaxed and the crew was very friendly.

Cabin ID

This cabin is directly below Entourage, the teen club, if I'm reading the map correctly. There was a loud thumping or scraping noise pretty much around the clock. It bothered me some, it bothered my husband a great deal. I was expecting a small room and a small room is what we got. The lights had USB ports by the bed which was nice. We had to move the bed frame each day about 1" over to one side so I could get around the refrigerator cabinet without getting my leg stuck. The decor was nice, the room was clean.
