We booked our first Med cruise for the fab destnations and were not dissapointed at all! The bonus was the ship with 4,000+ that we thought would be a problem; however we never felt crowded. The ship was beautiful and well-maintained with an excellent, friendly staff. We looked forward to coming home after a long day of touring.
Only 2 drawbacks - ship's store not open while in French waters.
We booked a airport transfer with NCL; but still had to roll and load/unload our own luggage onto/from the transfer bus!
Food and Dining
Once in Moderno for breakfast; but the food was cold.
Not enough entertainment to my liking each night since Howl at the Moon (dueling pianos) and Epic Beatles are not my favs; but others seemed to enjoy those shows in the middle of the week. We thoroughly enjoyed Cirque Dreams dinner show (premium seating well worth it), Soul Satisfaction (Motown) and, of course, 4 Ever in Concert was the best surprise for Saturday night ever!!!!
And don't miss any of the Burn the Floor shows!
Service and Staff
Cabin / Stateroom
Only 2 decks below from food at Garden Cafe and pool; so we could walk the few times the elevators were busy.
Ship's store closes in french waters.
Our luggage was by our door right after we boarded.
Cabins closer forward seemed to be located to the areas of the ship we frequented - Garden Cafe, Epic Theater, Bliss Lounge, Spice H2O and Headliner's. Spread out your entertainment choices for the week.
