Sail Date: Nov 2021
Sailing into Manhattan by the Statue Liberty was a highlight of this cruise.
The excursion to Andrea Bocelli’s hometown was one of the best we have ever taken.
The reason we love an aft balcony.

Our Princess TA from Rome was cancelled. The price and itinerary worked for us so we booked our first NCL cruise. We have been on 38 cruises, mostly Princess tho we have tried Cunard, Disney, MSC, Carnival

Bottom line? I would never take this ship if fully booked. Even at 40% capacity there were some long lines. I will give NCL a try again—and bought two Future cruise certificates. Also, COVID protocols were efficent,straight-forward and enforced while in EU. More relaxed in international waters.
