This was only my second cruise, and my wife's first. My first cruise was not on NCL. I booked this cruise, Boston to Bermuda, as a surprise for my then fiancee. We decided, why not get married in Bermuda while we're at it?
We both had an excellent time, and can't wait for our next trip.
EMBARKATION: Embarkation through Boston was pretty painless. There were three lines going through security and they moved pretty quickly. After getting through the line we had to fill out a health form, and then get into another line to get your stateroom key cards, picture taken, and make sure you had a credit card to attach to our onboard account. There was a Latitudes member line, and a first time cruiser's line. The Latitudes line was much shorter and quicker. I think we arrived at Black Falcon Pier around 11:30, and were on the boat by 12:40.
Our Oceanview room, 6076, was perfect. Felt bigger than I had anticipated. Plenty of closet space. Four drawers which were a little small, but we ended up having room for everything. We needed some extra hangers, and the stewards provided them for us. The bed was firm, as I read on a lot of other reviews, and I did wake up with a sore back most mornings. I asked for an eggcrate mattress topper, and that did help. I heard barely any nose. The only noise was from Deck 7 above, as you are below the teak, wooden, walking deck. If the crew was doing work, moving equipment, you might hear that. Hallway noise, and other room noise was pretty much non-existent. The bathrooms are plenty big. Much bigger than I had expected, as well.
