Additional details

Sail Date: Oct 2010
Cabin: Balcony

Embarkation: No waiting (we arrived about 90 minutes before sailing), very smooth. Quick luggage delivery to the cabin.

Ship: Very colorful and kitschy. Nice place is the SPA with splendid views. Comparing to other ships there is no "Atrium" and no real center of the ship.

Costs: On NCL you are often reminded to spend on add-ons like speciality restaurants, excursions, items in the shops, spa etc... Even the offered enrichment aims at it (Martini Classes, Chinese Medical products, gem stones).
