We loved the different ports of call so we could see a variety of islands and towns. Our room was fabulous, made even better by the attentive services of our room steward, Resley. We were however disappointed to find out that even though we had the ultimate beverage package that the drinks in the room were extra. No mention of this in the book in the room under mini bar - not even any pricing. The butler was of no use - waste of time and money. We enjoyed the ship overall - great crew and the other passengers were fun too. We would definitely go again, with NCL, maybe on a smaller ship so we could enjoy more personal service. The embarkation and disembarkation procedures were pretty flawless, which made it easy to manage our time. The Le Bistro restaurant was an excellent experience with very attentive waiters/waitresses. We only participated in one planned shore excursion, which was perfect for us as we like to do our own thing and explore the different venues ourselves, getting as far away from the tourist attractions as possible. These ports of call allowed us to do that - we took an excursion in Dubrovnik, which we were glad about as it would have been too much to do on our own.

Cabin Review

Aft-Facing Penthouse with Large Balcony
Cabin SF 9736
Cabin was great - Butler was not worth having. very disappointed with the fact we had to buy a water package over and above the ultimate beverage package, and that nobody told us we had to buy the beer and wine in the fridge on the first day, they weren't even priced.
