Additional details

Sail Date: Oct 2019
Cabin: Mid-Ship Mini-Suite with Balcony

We chose this cruise because of the itinerary and we love sea days. We didn't expect it to be 7 sea days in a row.

After reading the other reviews, I totally agree with the comments of the reviewers. NCL really failed on this cruise for the things they had control over.

The cabin and room steward was excellent.

Cabin Review

Mid-Ship Mini-Suite with Balcony

Nice size cabin and big bathroom. Really enjoyed the double faucet sink and the 6 side spray shower.

Port Reviews

Copenhagen

We spent 4 days prior to the cruise in Copenhagen. Loved every minute of it and can't wait to return. We bought the Copenhagen Card and it was well worth it.

Southampton

We took a ferry to Hythe and had a wonderful time on our own.

Cobh (Cork)

Took the train to Cork and spent the day walking all over. The key site was The English Market. It was fantastic.

Ponta Delgada

Didn't make it due to weather.

King's Wharf

My wife took an island excursion but I stayed on the ship with the cough crud that hit half of the guests had on the ship.

Great Stirrup Cay

Couldn't get on the island due to poor NCL tendering.

Miami

Probably one of the worse things is everyone getting off in Miami. I can understand the inspections and necessary stuff but NCL really fell down on taking care of the guest. Since we were on deck 14, we were the first to get off the ship. That also meant that we sat there a very long time in the terminal. By the time all the tours came back, there wasn't room for people to sit. A lot of guests sat on the floor which is ridiculous. Surely this inspection process has happened in the past so NCL should know what to expect. The room was very warm as more people showed up. I saw one person that had passed out. This cruise is an older group and people should not have to sit on the floor. Also the water and juice ran out multiple times. This one action could prevent us from traveling on NCL again. Every time the guy made an announcement, it was met with a loud chorus of BOO'S.
