Sail Date: Jan 2023
Cabin: Mid-Ship Balcony

We have never cruised with NCL prior to this cruise and this will also be our last. We originally selected NCL because of the South Africa itinerary booking it in August 2021. From beginning to end the cruise was disorganized with the left hand not knowing what the right hand was doing. Our Durban port of call was cancelled with no real explanation except "out of our control" and the itinerary change gave us almost 2 extra sea days. Who wants extra sea days on a ship which does not provide a whole lot to do accept sit around a pool and shop for expensive jewellery and art.

Kudos to the staff who worked hard the whole cruise.

The stateroom was mid-ship balcony and was okay but really showing signs of needing a refurbishment. Not sure who designed the toilet space but it does not work well for any size person.
