Additional details

Sail Date: Feb 2020
Cabin: Mid-Ship Mini-Suite with Balcony

Have spent over 50 nights on NCL. We have been on the large and Mid size ships. Overall Program is very good . Each Cruise ship has its own personality , regarding cruise and experiences. NCL attempts to maintain consistency and they do a good job at what they can control. Hear are the positives and negatives we experienced on this trip .

----Boarding and Departure- very good - The heavy screening that is going on all over the country showed some backups on opening day , nothing to awful, Staff was friendly . Departure was excellent, especially with facial recognition they are now using, probably the fastest departure from a ship to date ( remember this ship had 4500 passengers ) .

---Meals in the garden cafe were themed at night - recommend going to the chef to cook the meal of the day ( Italian/ Mexican etc.) vs going to the cafe style food, It wasn't bad but sometimes not as hot as we would like.

Cabin Review

Mid-Ship Mini-Suite with Balcony

very good cabin . notes above about balcony being smaller on this class of NCL ships. All in all very good rooms. Nice size for two people , tight for three....would recommend this type of room for sure.
