1st Norwegian cruise, 16th cruise

Sail Date: April 30, 2016

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Balcony

The ship is beautiful, but pool area not sufficient. Devoted too much area to the Kids waterpark and The Haven with a private pool. Menu in the complimentary dining rooms, just ok. They make you want to go to the specialΒ  restaurants, which you can't get in because of full reservations. O'Sheehans Bar and grill is a good option for dinner, but they served the same things on alternating nites. If you like a mix drink, the ship uses Pepsi, which is not a good mixer for us. Prefer Coke products. Only elevators in the front and aft of the ship. Not enough to move around 4000 people. Again, The Haven takes up the entire back of the ship, so if you spend thousands more you get special treatment, but not for average cruisers. Very disappointed.

Cabin / Stateroom
Nice average cabin. Roomy bathroom area and closet space. Room steward was great.
Embarkation and Disembarkation

Clean but pool area not large enough due to the Haven and kids waterpark.

Too large, too many people for us. Not enough elevators or pool area. Haven takes up the entire back of the ship and kids waterpark takes up too much of what should be another pool for everyone.
