I had an interior cabin on my first ncl cuise, the worst part of this cruise was the awful sweaty smell in the cabin, mattress and pillows had hundreds of people old sweats, in addition i had to ask housekeeping to do a deep cleaning in the bathroom due to bad smell. it sounded like i was above some kind of drainage, i constantly heard fluxing waters, kids yelling and running, drunk people on the hall late at night, etc., definitely this was not a quiet sail! I had to do a few trips to guest services with problems of overcharge and inaccurate posting, their private island was super crowded, buffet lines was long and hard to find a place to sit down, limited hours for everything i.e. i wanted to check out a book from their library but library clerk was only available for one hour in the morning and one hour in the afternoon... my overall experience with ncl was not great!

Smelly room
