Additional details

Sail Date: Feb 2020
Cabin: Mid-Ship Inside

looked a decent price for a solo, originally 20 nights it was reduced to 17 nights with a promised 25% reduction and a 25% off the next booking - problems with a refit lead to the reduced cruise nights

the rearranged flights meant that ncl put me up in a hotel for one night at fumicino airport. I had to arrange my own transfers to be refunded later which was odd as I was greeted at the airport by an ncl person who informed me of a coach the following morning from rome airport to the port which would cost me 60$ - so either pay 60$ to ncl or arrange my own transfers of 105 euros which ncl said they will refund, makes no sense whatsoever

embarkation took over 3 hours, the longest ever, arrived on board for the safety drill which was the longest drill ever covering everything form use handrails and don't forget to tie your shoe laces only to be repeated all again in Italian

Cabin Review

Mid-Ship Inside

apart from the first 3 days and nights being cold and uncomfortable and a leaking shower door it was very good, annoyingly i found out that other passengers had the similar cold cabin which was a 2 minute fix was corrected the same day whilst i had to complain 4 times before anything was done

Port Reviews

Rome (Civitavecchia)

civitavecchia is quite a pleasant place should you decide to wander around
