Sail Date: Nov 2019
Cabin: Mid-Ship Oceanview Picture Window

Been on 11 Norwegian cruise and this was good except for embarkation where passengers left the ship four hours late and the Norwegian check in computers were down for over two hours.

I arrived at the Cruise Terminal at 11:30 am and did not board the ship until 3 pm. I was supposed to be on the ship at 12 noon with priority embarkation. Those who did not have Latitudes ranking boarded ship after 3 pm.

They kept the lunch buffet open until 3:30 and threw out everyone who were trying to get something to eat because of their 4 pm safety drill. But here is the kicker, we did not sail until 7 pm and so, the drill could have been safely done at 5:30 after everyone had eaten.

Cabin Review

Mid-Ship Oceanview Picture Window

Did it already.

Loud table and chair movement noises coming from above from 10 to 11 pm, so you can't sleep earlier than that.

Bed was decent and the pillows were too soft for me.

The phone was three feet off the ground and do, you must be on your knees to use it.
