Sail Date: Feb 2020
Cabin: Oceanview Stateroom with Large Picture Window

We enjoyed our cruise very much. This was the next-to-last sailing before the COVID 19 shut down NCL, and we approached it warily. We observed no especially stringent sanitation efforts, other than an inescapable sing-song "we are washee you" in the buffet, which got real old real fast.

We're casino creatures, and found the one aboard quite the best we've ever encountered at sea: large, good spacing between machines, tolerable noise, payouts about as expected. Good luck finding a cocktail server. More often than not, we had to go to the bar to get our own drinks.

TV offerings in the cabin were inadequate (especially compared with those on the Royal Princess on which we'd recently sailed): not much other than news unless you want to fork over $10 for a movie rental.

Cabin Review

Oceanview Stateroom with Large Picture Window

Ours was a forward-facing ocean view cabin. It was adequate, but much of the floor space was unusable because of the ceiling's slant. There was no seating other than the beds. It was a LONG walk to the elevators. I would not choose this particular cabin again.
