Just to give this review some context, I was traveling solo, am 70 years old, and this was my second Norwegian cruise. I took this cruise primarily for three ports: Acajutla (El Salvador), Puerto Quetzal (Guatemala) and San Juan del Sur (Nicaragua). I'd already been through the Panama Canal, so that was of less interest to me.

First, there were things to like about this cruise.

The ship is not large, so it doesn't take long to learn your way around, or to get anywhere.

Cabin Review

Cabin 71** is the furthest forward inside cabin portside on deck 7. there was no other cabin next to me on one side. The kids' are was right there, but as I only saw 4 kids on the whole cruise, those crew members didn't have much to do, and there rarely any kids there.

Nice cabin, nice, and perfect for a solo traveler. Be aware, though, that there is precisely ONE outlet for North American use. It's by the desk. Also above the desk is a plug for 220 volts (European), though if you have a 220 adapter, and your item is multi-voltage, it will work for you.

I use a CPAP machine, and my cord was long enough to r each the outlet from the bedside table without an extrension cord (though it should be noted that my machine has a long cord.) I would recommend that you bring a device that can plug into the outlet. Mine has two outlets and two USB ports, and it was perfect for me needs.
