We only cruise Norwegian. I'm sure there are many other good cruise lines, but we've become accustomed to NCL and we like receiving points which add up to perks. This was our 7th cruise (Caribbean, Greece/Italy, Mexico, Alaska). We have stayed in suites, mini-suites, Balcony Stateroom, family rooms, inside rooms and The Haven. All have been wonderful with The Haven being exceptional. VERY clean, VERY fun, Fantastic service... 7 cruises and 0 issues!
Dining: The specialty restaurants are incredible... we did the dining package and it was 100% worth it, all of them are good, but especially loved Cagneys and Teppanyaki. The complimentary dining rooms are great too, Tropicana was our favorite. The food and service for both specialty and comp dining rooms were very good.
Beverage Package: if it's not included as a benefit in your cruise package, it's 100% worth purchasing.
13250 was in a great location by the elevators.. easy to get to most places. Our kids stayed in 13653 and inside cabin and it was a nice size and good location right next to the elevators. They loved it.
