I had a Panama cruise cancelled last year because of COVID.It was another company,but still wanted to see it.Glad I went because it's a one time need to see.The cruise was quiet with no children.It was right before Christmas.Staff was friendly and attentive.Some of the passengers seemed a little snobby and entitled.Dont usually see that on NCL.The ship was bright,clean and updated.The food was better than any other NCL ship.I had 2 free specialty dinners with my platinum perks.Its great because also get a free bag of laundry.I usually under pack for this reason.I had a 250 next cruise deposit to use.I decided would not be cruising on them anymore.I went down to the desk and scoped out the crowd.Felt good vibes from this couple.Approached them as a stranger and told them wanted to donate my deposit.Needless to say they were surprised and happy.Had to jump through a few hoops to give it to them.It worked out well.Food was great in Cagney's.La Cucina lacked in all areas.Did the thermal spa and was never crowded.

Cabin Review
