Sail Date: Sep 2023
Cabin: Aft-Facing Balcony

This was our third time cruising with Norwegian and we were very excited to try their newest ship. The itinerary was the big draw however, as we have always wanted to visit Croatia, Turkey, and the Greek isles.

Viva is a beautiful ship that feels much more intimate than others its size. We loved having multiple pool options (the infinity pools are a nice touch) and being able to got to the Local and Indulge food hall rather than fight the crowds in the buffet. That being said, Viva has some design oddities that make it difficult to navigate. You can’t get to the main pool without going through the buffet and some of the entertainment venues are way too small—especially Syd Norman’s which was our favorite (the house band totally rocks!)

The restaurants are very attractive (the view from Hudson’s are amazing) and the food overall was quite good. My only quibble is serving French fries with steak rather than a baked potato) which just felt cheap.

Cabin Review

Aft-Facing Balcony

The cabins were great: lots of storage, big tvs with lots of options, and comfortable beds. Best of all, they have the biggest showers I’ve ever seen in a standard room.
