Additional details

Sail Date: Mar 2020
Cabin: Aft-facing Balcony Stateroom

- Summary: we have cruised a number of lines (Carnival, Royal Caribbean, Princess, Celebrity, Holland America, Oceania.) This was our first cruise on NCL and was the best experience we have had on a mass-market line. Excluding Oceania which is our favorite but in a different price bracket. We would definitely use NCL again if they have itineraries/prices that suit us.

- This cruise was chosen for price (free at sea items), departure port rather than destinations.

- Embarkation smooth and fast, disembarkation not so good (lack of info)

Cabin Review

Aft-facing Balcony Stateroom

Cabin was typical size (great for 2, no more), had plenty of storage, was in good order and room attendant did a great job. Really nothing to complain about. Don't care about towel animals.

Port Reviews

New York (Manhattan)

We arrived in NYC 2 nights ahead of the cruise to do our own exploring.

Great Stirrup Cay

Did not bother to go ashore. Tendering was apparently a nightmare. Still calling groups to go ashore between 1 and 2pm
