Review summary

Having only booked 5 days before sailing, and not having cruised before we were unsure about what to expect, and had little time to acquaint ourselves with either on board activities or excursions. We thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. Great balcony cabin amidship - didn't matter that it was on the seaward side of the ship. Still always something to see and loved waking up to the dawn. Freestyle Dining was fantastic  - didn't need to plan ahead and could eat where and when we wanted to. Always chose to share and met lots of interesting people. Wine was well priced and good quality. Garden buffet had a huge amount of variety and any individual needs were catered for. Main dining rooms also had excellent menus and service. Wonderful, friendly and helpful crew. Fantastic shows and entertainment. Ports were interesting and unexpected. Processes foe embarkation and disembarkation were well organised and worked smoothly. We would happily sail with Norwegian again.
