Sail Date: Jun 2019
Cabin: Mid-Ship Balcony

We choose this ship due to the itinerary which was one of the few things we ended up happy with. We booked initially in Dec. Two weeks after final payment the price on our trip dropped by more than 60%. I was offered a $250 on board credit as a consolation to the almost $7000 drop. Not ever cruising NCL prior I was baffled. I have never seen a cruise line struggle to fill cabins to the extent they created such a massive drop. That should have been our first clue!

We boarded the ship and there was a massive wet brown stain on my carpet that the room steward tried to cover with the ottoman. The sheets were stained in three places and the mirror had two large handprints in the middle of it. Second clue?

After calling housekeeping and front desk and to deal with the carpet I was told they would replace it in two days. Three days later they finally did.

The room itself was set up OK besides being filthy on embarkation. I have no idea how anyone over 6 foot would use that toilet.
