Good value but only fair overall

Sail Date: September 12, 2014

Reviewed: 2 years ago

Traveled As: Large Group

Room Type: Suite

Accommodations were misrepresented by "". We were sold a family suite which was represented as two bedrooms with a common living area. Technically correct but we were not advised that the second bedroom was little more than the size of a closet with a very hard sofa bed. We found our problem when we occupied the suite. Not at all satisfactory for two adult couples. We tried to find an upgrade but the ship was full.


Ship other than living accommodations was clean and comfortable. Food was very good, both the complimentary dining and the specialty restaurants. Entertainment was good. Service was good.


Destinations were pretty bland other than the final - Quebec City - which was beautiful.


Once we dealt with the living accommodations, the food, drink, and entertainment were fine.


Costs were good.


I can recommend Norwegian Cruise Lines generally, I will be very careful in the future if I am dealing with . I cannot heartily recommend the interim destinations of this particular cruise and would not repeat.

Master suite, living area, and balcony were fine. As stated early this should not be sold to four adults. We had no idea as to the size of the second bedroom and no comfortable bed.

Had time for lunch on the waterfront and not much else.
Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island
Pretty little town.
