My wife and I did this cruise as a retirement celebration. The cruise advisor highly recommended deck 7, which we later discovered was directly above the night club where we enjoyed loud music every night. The room was nice with a large verandah. We did the ultimate dining package but still had trouble getting reservations some nights, and we weren't told that you had to have nice clothes to dine in the French restaurant, and a couple times we stood in line outside the door on a waiting list, and never got called...would've been nice if they had just told us. Be prepared to pay for everything from shakes to beer. We enjoyed the stops thoroughly, but were not impressed with Norwegian at all.
