Gem of a Week!

Sail Date: June 21, 2014

Reviewed: 2 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Suite

Stayed in cabin 11076 mini suite. Really perfect for 2 people. Ampel drawer space with a good size balcony. Mini fridge was a must for soda, water and juice. Shandy kept the room immaculate and ice for the bucket and cooler was plentiful. Roel the bartender at the java cafe was a great ambassador for NCL. He was so personable and entertaining. His slight of hand magic was fascinating. We were impressed with the ease of Free Style Dining: two meals in the Magenta Dining Room but the 3 signature restaurants were amazing: Moderno's salad bar and meats cut from the skewers, Tapanyaka chef's performance and the Le Bistro was exquisite. All of the staff were pleasant and made sure our questions got answered, made our trip rememberable and provided top of the line service. The check in process was the only drag with long lines but the disembarkation was a breeze only 15 minutes using a baggage handler who zipped us through customs and to a taxi. The only thing that was disappointing was the very small pool area with very little space between the lounges. The entertainment was surprising good from the lounges and the main theater. We will be cuising on NCL again it certainly was a Gem of Week!

Our cabin 11076 was 3 cabins from the mid-ship elevators, one floor below the entrance to the buffet and the pool.Walking through the inside going to the stern the Great Out Doors was a great place to have breakfast.
