I have just returned from NOS 7 night cruise. Overall I had a fantastic time on this ship and have very little to complain about overall. The weather was fantastic throughout the cruise which definitely helped!
The Ship: The ship itself I found to have a good layout with the promenade area being my favourite area to stroll down and always seemed full of life. The only complaint would be that the ship was a little dirty in places and particularly after the bbq on deck there seemed to be a fair bit of rubbish floating about. This also extended to our stateroom where the cleanliness of the laundry was questionable. We had to ask for fresh pillow cases on our first night as the ones we had were stained-not nice!
Stateroom: We had an corner aft stateroom and absolutely loved it! The extra space in the cabin and the stunning views from the balcony were well worth it! I also did not find the walk from the cabin to the elevators/stairs too far at all! In fact I would say it was average! Being right below windjammers was also a bonus as on sea days we found it to be overcrowded at both breakfast and lunch times and so it was nice to be able to just pop back down to our room and eat on our balcony without having to fight for a table whilst our food got cold.
