Room Type: Balcony

The cruise was a wonderful experience. The stateroom was consistently clean, the staff very kind and the food was delicious. We had the UDP and it was wonderful to order dinner specific to dietary restrictions. The only drawback was the amount of smoke on the cruise. Every morning to get to the buffet we had to walk through a gauntlet of smoke from morning risers. This reduced my appetite and love for the cruise drastically. Also, the smoke from the casino and Havana room traveled through the halls and made the carpet smell like cheap cigarettes. I would definitely invest in a smoke-free cruise but would be hesitant to use Norwegian again because of the smoking.

I like smaller ships with lots of space and the unlimited dining plan.
