We visited Europe last year sailing from Barcelona. We enjoyed it so much we decided to go back to Europe for our next cruise. Embarkation was easy and smooth, our luggage arrived at our stateroom shortly after we arrived. The food in the buffet, especially for breakfasts was really good, omlette station or cooked eggs any way you like. Toast, cereal, hot cold whatever you wanted was there. Hostess at the entrance was fantastic, Happy Happy, put a smile on everyone's faces every day! We like the specialty restaurants when we travel, so visiting Cagneys and Teppanyaki a couple of times, La Cucina and Moderno, all wonderful experiences. The regular restaurants, Alizar and Grand Pacific were really good, no complaints there! Shore excursions we only booked one thru the ship, hop on hop off in Malta which was really good. We booked with an outside company for other excursions and that worked well for us! The entertainment, we like were named Azelea, the guitar keyboard duo, they sound great and do a good variety of music. We didn't do any of the theatre shows this time so I can't comment on those. The dance party was excellent, the cruise director Dave was full of energy. We have cruised with Norwegian 8 times, this was a really good one. One thing we couldn't understand was the grumbling of some passengers, I don't think in my opinion anything Norwegian did was going to be good enough for those people, an example, for the tendering in Santorini, (why do we have to be herded like cattle?) I didn't quite understand that, but oh well to each his/her own, we will be back with Norwegian for sure!
First time not having a balcony in quite a few cruises but the cabin was excellent, comfortable bed, lots of storage, shower was really good and steward looked after it well.
We walked in Santorini, took the cable car to the top, highly recommend that, and we walked and enjoyed the culture, lunch at a wonderful restaurant called the blue note(suggested by trip advisor) food and service excellent!
Hop on Hop off took us to the Acropolis, history was amazing and fascinating!View All undefined undefined Reviews
