Sail Date: Nov 2022
Cabin: Mid-Ship Balcony

I chose this cruise because I wanted to experience a smaller ship for the first time. I knew when I booked this ship that it was quite old and lacked some of the WOW features of newer ships. However, many have said on past cruises they found the smaller ships their favourite because of its intimate feel and classic cruising experience.

Now that I have experienced both types of NCL ships, I would have to lean toward the newer ships, but that's overall. It really depends what you are looking for on your cruise.

Also note, I am a solo traveller.

Cabin Review

Mid-Ship Balcony

Clean cabin, but outdated. No USB chargers by the bed and you will likely need a UK adapter for an extra plug. No coffee maker. Small TV with limited ship integration for booking and account details. Good storage space.

Quiet at night on deck 10 and no noises to wake you up. Balcony was fine, but the door handle really needs replacing.

Bed was okay but the middle hump made sleeping a bit difficult.
