Sail Date: Nov 2022
Cabin: Family Mini-Suite with Balcony

I booked Norwegian for the first time during the pandemic and had Future Cruise Credit to use or loose. Having primarily cruised with Celebrity my expectations of the cruising experience is high..

This specific ship is big by all accounts, however the individual spaces are not very big to accommodate large number of passengers all enjoying the pool, same show or entertainment outside of the theatre.

If you are new to Norwegian, they have designed a reservation system for everything; specialty dining, the comedy club, the pour house and even shows in the theatre sell out..except pool loungers and when they figure out how to get you to pay $25 for a reserved one, that will also have a two tier system.

Cabin Review

Family Mini-Suite with Balcony

On a transatlantic cruise the 1 bag of free laundry was nice. The bathroom was also nice to have a full length shower and not the corner. If you are an average sized couple, save the money and go with a normal Balcony cabin. I was upgraded.

Port Reviews

Ponta Delgada

Such a fun port! We rented a car, drive slow and make a day of it!
