This being our first cruise, we just didn't know what to expect. I had visions of lots of people and no room to move but it was the opposite even though it was a full cruise so we were very pleased. we had a mid ship balcony which was quite spacious and had plenty of storage. Suitcases slid under bed which was great. Ample shelves and full size wardrobe. Toilet little cramped but fine. Big shower. Room attendant was wonderful. Bed very comfy. Staff in general super helpful and friendly. Very up to date in regards to health and hygiene. Good medical centre and hand sanitizing everywhere. 'happy happy, washy washy staff at all eating places.... Free style dinning means eat where you like any time. Booking required for a couple of the specialized eateries but there was always the garden buffet which was fantastic and had a huge range of food for breakfast , lunch & dinner. The ship is not huge which is nice. Aproximately 1.40 kms to walk around on the walking track. Lovely art deco style bars and furnishings. Great duty free shop. All the usual things you would expect. Plenty to keep amused with activities etc. We loved it. An older style ship in our opinion but that was what made it charming. Not too over the top like i imagined some cruises might be. I think great for couples and older people but also families as well. 2 pools and kid minding. Well done norwegian cruise line. You got us hooked. Read Less

Sailed from Papeete, French Polynesia to Lima Peru. Cuisine on ship was unbelievable. Top quality food. No charge for specialty restaurant dining in the four specialty restaurants on board. Main dining room was excellent also. Specialty restaurants require reservations, but the main dining room did not and we never had to wait. For lunch the Dining Room featured different areas of the world each day and a food sampling plate was available of special delicacies. Don't normally eat in the buffet for evening meal but couldn't pass up, steak and lobster tails on two occasions. Higher staff to passenger ratio and it showed. Prompt attention to all details, whether dining or cabin. Staff was extremely friendly and efficient and frequently remembered our last name. Ship never felt crowded. Afternoon tea was special and sweets served often changed, accompanied by a string quartet. Only disappointment was not being able to tender in at Easter Island due to weather on both scheduled days. Rest of the ports were special and we enjoyed each one. You do pay more on Oceania but the money was well worth it. There is no charge for soda or specialty coffees. Have a variety of Coke products along with bottled water in stateroom refrigerator at no charge with daily replenishment was nice. Also encouraged to take readily available bottled water (free of charge) when going off the ship. Some of the meals like all those in Red Ginger Restaurant, ate there three times, equaled or exceeded some of the top restaurants around. Read Less
