Mesmerizing Vacation

Sail Date: July 16, 2016

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Inside

Our first time on the cruise was beyond describable! Despite us being vegetarions and we thought we could have a little more veggie options, we came back with absolutely no complains! The views are the best part, you are in middle of the ocean and there is nothing surrounding you except beautiful sunsets/sunrises or the moon! NCL definitely took every measure for us to feel comfortable and that we are on a luxurious vacation. We took an inside stateroom and felt it was sufficient, since this was our first time, we spent majority of our times outside our rooms. That being said, we definitely want to try the balcony in the future! The staff was very friendly and you feel like you become family by the end of 7-8 days. If the budget agrees, I can't wait to go on my next cruise as soon as I can ;) 

Cabin / Stateroom
Since the space is small, especially if you are going with a group of 4 in one room, try to take all the clothes out and organize it in the closet space given! That helps making more room and you almost feel like you have moved in!

Our ship was great! The captain to the housekeeping staff to the bartenders and the entertainment crew and even the Master chef, was "on point". The shows are really great that take place in stardust theatre!
