Cabin: Balcony

This was a quick, four-day introduction to NCL's newest ship, Norwegian Prima. We left from the port of Galveston, having spent one night prior to the cruise at the Harbor House hotel. This was within walking distance to the ship; took us about 15 minutes dragging our luggage.

It's a new ship, therefore, it had that "new ship smell", you know what I'm talking about right? New carpeting, new art, new dry goods! Take a deep breath! LOL Everything was in the taupe family of colors, with some aqua thrown in. I loved it. The furnishings in our stateroom were sleek and modern. The common areas felt very sophisticated with clean lines, especially the atrium area. I often found there were many people there, but there wasn't much going on. The Starbucks is located there; however, and that was always hopping!

However, and this is a big however, there is SO MUCH TO DO on board this ship. The multiple level gokarts, darts, mini-golf, the Stadium gaming area, etc. Entertainment venues. Dry slides that drop 10 decks (note I did not try this) Escape room. Pools and spas. You will not be bored. Keep in mind mostly everything has a charge which is very standard today.

Cabin Review


I don't remember the actual balcony category, but it was more than enough room for two. As I mentioned, the colors were subdued versions of taupe, with some teal/aqua accents. Very pleasing to the eye and restful. While I thought the stateroom a bit short on storing things, the bathroom was another story. There was a really large sink and what I felt was a larger than normal shower. It had a really nice rainwater shower head! There was plenty of storage space in the bathroom
