Additional details

Sail Date: Jan 2020
Cabin: Balcony

This was our 3rd cruise with NCL, 15th in total. We choose this cruise for the itinerary.

I must say, being European and living in a mediëval city our expectations are high. You can not surprise us with a 19th century church. So history/culture and nature are the things we want to see. (CC why no history/culture in "Which of the following apply to your review?")

We booked a balcony on deck 10 fwd., inclusive ultimate beverage package and 50 $
