Great value I had a great time and would definitely do it again. The ports were well chosen, just the time at the ports could be longer. It was sometimes a little bit rushy. The food onboard is great, a final cake walk would be great, and thr prizes at the specialty restaurants are too high.the food there is great though. Overall, there is a good chance beeing again onboard NCL The staff is friendly, the entertainment was great and the bar tenders new their job well. However adding 20%on every single onboard service is unreasonable. Also the prices for excursions are far too high, you can make some excursions in half prize, if you do them by yourself. Both are things not related with the cruise, more likely with the policy of NCL. Freestylecruising is a good invention and makes the cruise enjoyable for everybody. Overall, well done and save sailings

The people you are with make your trip something special

Cabin Review

Inside
Cabin IX 10109
Our steward was very friendly, polite and well educated. He loves his job and let guest feel that.
Thank you Stephen.


The size of the stateroom is well designed and you find all comfort you are looking for.

The only disadvantage of the insight stateroom is the darkness, it's really dark and it's easy to loose track on time.
A continuous picture from the outside would improve this.

Except that, great experience in the room
