Review Summary

Not sure I will ever sail with NCL again. Not my first NCL cruise but potentially my last. When my children and I boarded and entered our stateroom, the bathroom smelled like URINE! I believe my cabin was a so called "upgrade" which was adjacent to 3 staff only rooms. The doors to those rooms constantly slammed shut, making resting almost impossible. I could not get into the staterooms safe, ugh. I asked to change rooms and was rudely told NO by guest services. As a matter of reference my wife and I sailed on the old NCL Majesty on our honeymoon. I told our children this and they had a look on their face, as if to say "you took mom on a smelly bathroom cruise? Finally I spoke with a fellow passenger who got on the ship within 10 days of sailing and paid, according to him, $650.00 from Iowa which included his airfare. I have written NCL and am awaiting their response

Think twice, take photos of anything wrong. Believe me, I was not expecting to see/smell what I did.
