Additional details

Sail Date: Dec 2022
Cabin: Mid-Ship Balcony

We loved Norwegian so much that we bought stock and held on to it during the downturn. This cruise would be our 10th with the line, and most expensive to date, but was not a good trip.

Two ports were missed due to weather, (not Norwegian's fault!!), but apparently they routinely miss visiting the Falkland Islands, and don't post any specific cautions or warnings about this on the cruise description.

Maybe because it's often skipped, there was no compensation offered for missing this port, which resulted in 3 straight days onboard, mostly with the walking decks/pool area locked off).

Cabin Review

Mid-Ship Balcony

Cabins are a bit small, but functional. Wonderful room steward. (Alex)

Port Reviews

Buenos Aires

The port is close to BA, so you can walk to and from the ship to get into the city.

Puerto Montt

So beautiful! We took an excursion to nearby Puerto Varas, so did not get to spend time in this actual port but everything was gorgeous.
