Avoid Rooms on Deck 11 below the fitness center

We stayed in Suite 11221, which was a beautiful comfortable room but I would advise people to avoid this particular cabin and the ones around it unless you don't want to get any sleep. This suite was directly under ...

Detailed Review

Cabins: We had two cabins 2371 & 2369. 2371 was a Cove balcony which was a first for us. I now prefer the cove balcony to a regular balcony. The cove balcony has more shade and privacy and less wind. Two doors ...

Panorama cruise

We chose this ship because it was a new ship with 3 hours by flight. We were very excited about the fun amenities. Getting on the ship was ok. Getting off the ship was horribly long and painful. We had hoped ...

Mixed feeling = Mixed reviews. Some good, some not so good.

On so many levels we wanted this cruise to be epic because we had my MIL and my sister with us, both first time cruisers. Having cruised on Carnival and other Cruise lines in the past we didn't sway their judgement ...

This was our 5th cruise with NCL and by far the largest ship we've been on. Prior to this sailing with over 4,900 passengers plus crew, I want to say our next largest ship had just under 3,000 passengers. We've ...
