Additional details

Sail Date: Feb 2020
Cabin: Mid-Ship Balcony

We sailed on NCL because of the Harrah's Casino At Sea Program, otherwise we might have picked another cruise line. The balcony room had only one 110v plug, not really enough in this day of cell phones and other electronic devices.Bring an adapter to plug in multiple devices. Food was fine in main restaurants, service was excellent in speciality dining. The smoking lounge, a glass box, next to one of the bars was always filled with hazy smoke and when people exited the smoking box the smoke drifted out with them. Want to smoke, just walk down the hall and you will find the room, the smoke smell is that strong. This ship did not have the kid friendly race cars and water slides of the larger NCL ships so if you want to keep the kids occupied this may not be the ship. Lots of music options at the bars, but a bit too loud for socializing. A piano bar with background music would be a good addition. The ship was very clean and the staff attentive. We booked our own tours in ports via the internet and there were also many trip options just at the end of the pier for last minute planners.

Cabin Review

Mid-Ship Balcony

Room was clean but a bit smaller than other NCL ships we have booked. Only one 110 v plug in the room. Plenty of storage. The toilet is separate from the sink by a door, a nice detail. If someone is very overweight there is no way they could fit into the toilet compartment. The sink area small, and if someone is very large they would not be able to bend over the sink if the door was shut.
