Bermuda cruise so only 1 long (3 day) stop. Plenty of time to explore and/or just enjoy the ship. Plenty of venues for eating and entertainment on this beautiful ship. Plenty of food options at the buffet as well with various stations. Although embarkation and disembarkation was a nightmare. We disembarked with our luggage but still had to get in line behind the people picking up their luggage rather than proceeding straight to customs as other cruise lines do. We traveled with the family so ages ranged from 20 to 85 and this cruise was perfect for all of us. Plenty of entertainment options for the 20 year old and plenty of accommodations made for the 85 year old (designated tables at buffet and theatre, plenty of staff to help seat and carry drinks/food). The pool area can get quite crowded and loud. Not a place for quiet reading or relaxing. The “quiet” option is H2O Spice area that has lots of chairs but only a few umbrellas so if you want shade you have to get there early (before 7am on sea days). But there is a walk thru grotto with water feature for cooling off. Would definitely cruise with NCL again.

Cabin Review

Large Balcony Stateroom
Cabin B6 9730
Cabin decor is very nice. Bathroom is large (for cruise ship) and shower has a door rather than curtain!
Placement of closer is a bit strange as half of it is behind to sofa (or bed), so hard to get to.
Balcony had chairs, lounger and tables.
