.I would not recommend this cruise or go on another one. I booked 7 months in advance. I was penalized for booking early. Not only did I pay top dollar but I was given a small room with an obstructed view. Vacation Outlet person said that was all that was left. After talking to people on the cruise I found out if you book last minute not only do you get a much better room but you pay a lot less. People who book early should be upgraded beforethe last minute people. I found the cruise very crowded. There was one small pool for 2800 people. You had to get up early to reserve a chair on the pool deck. The food was mediocre. On the up side the workers were very polite and friendly and did a great job. I also enjoyed the entertainment. I will not go on another cruise with Norwegian nor will I recommend it to my friends.

Walking the promenade on deck 7 is really nice, especially in the morning, and the sunsets are beautiful from there.
