South Carribbean Cruise on NCL

Sail Date: October 23, 2016

Reviewed: 7 months ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

We selected this particular cruise due to it's itinerary as well as it's price compared to other cruise lines.  We were not disappointed.  NCL does a great job taking care of their guests aboard the ship (although the on board "extras" can be a bit pricey).  They always kept the Port call schedules and made it very easy to get on and off the ship.

Cabin / Stateroom
We lucked out with our cabin. NCL assigned us to our cabin which was guaranteed to have a view, but it may be partially obstructed. Well our view was great, and the room was plenty large. We had lots of storage space and room to move throughout the cabin. The bathroom was plenty large too. I'm not sure all the other cabins were like this, but I wasn't about to complain or inquire.

Deck 7 is great for walking (2 and 2/3 laps equals 1 mile). However, this is also a deck available for smokers. Fortunately it is very well ventilated, open to the sea breeze, so it didn't stop us from walking the deck. This is a great way to burn off the extra calories that are consumed aboard.
