This was my first experience on NCL.  I found the ship itself to be very elegant in it's decor.  We had an interior cabin and found the space to be small, but with a warm feel to the room.  There were no outlets in the bathroom, also the outlets by the vanity did not accommodate my blow dryer.  We did bring along a power strip which I highly recommend so multiple batteries can be charged at one time.  We also brought along a hotel key card as the lights in the room are activated by a key card being in the slot inside the stateroom.  This way we could charge our electronics without leaving our room key when we left the room.  I would highly recommend making dinner reservations each night as this will expedite your experience.  If you have not done this prior to the cruise you can do it on the TV in your stateroom or with the dinning desk.  Loved the H20 Spice area for adults as well as the other sports deck activities.   The tube water slides where you ride on a tube were the best.  The guys in Howl at the Moon really interacted with the guests and had everyone engaged.  If you go see Million Dollar Quartet do not leave until the house lights come on, everyone thought the show was over and started leaving before the finally.  We enjoyed an evening drink at the 5 O'clock somewhere bar which was located outside and had some comfy chairs to sit in.
