Cabin: Mid-Ship Oceanview Picture Window

This was our 4th NCL cruise and will be our last. We are not big eaters, but enjoy a "snack" before going to bed. The buffet, under title "24/7", closed at 10:30. We came up from shows and could not eat in the buffet. We did not want food from a restaurant, just bread or a cookie. We ended up going up earlier, getting bread and leaving it in the room. We are not "foodies" so the food was fine.

Seems as though they were cutting corners.

Outside entertainment was very good to excellent and production "elements" was excellent.

Cabin Review

Mid-Ship Oceanview Picture Window

Cabin OB

It was a little "tight", but we had plenty of room for clothing etc. Our last few cruises have been with a balcony so i sort of forgot how small the rooms are.

Port Reviews

Charlottetown (Prince Edward Island)

We drove around PEI and learned a lot of the history. Did make a number of stops.

Quebec City

Wasn't worth the trip. All we did was stop the bus and look at the falls which we couldn't get close to because they were doing work.

Sydney (Nova Scotia)

Heart of the Island We saw the lakes and the Highland Village .


We did the Cliff Walk and the Breakers. It was interesting.
