WinkGreat new ship with innovative design. Balcony room had nice bath and great lighting in the room and bath.  Cagney's steakhouse had outside dining tables which were nice.  Entertainment was A+.  Illusionarium was wonderful and well worth the cover.  The Theatre show LEGALLY BLONDE was exceptional for a cruise ship.  Casino was clean, open, not smoke-filled, and had an extremely helpful staff.  I was most impressed that NCL put major money into venues offered for those that wanted to enjoy them......and not increasing the cruise cost to all.  (I hope this works out for the cruise lines).  We paid for the illusionarium twice and enjoyed it immensely.  Also spent heavily in casino.  We did not frequent the lounges much or attend the 'wine musical'.  Since all these activities are "PAY-AS-YOU-GO", we paid for what we enjoyed and did not pay for others.  It gave us the feeling we did NOT have to 'do it all' since it was included' in the cruise fare. 

Finally I must say, as experienced travelers, we did not feel NCL was aiming to 'nickel-n-dime' us at every corner as often heard.  We felt we paid for the normal "included" items on a fabulous ship and any of the "extra's" would be additional and OUR decision.  If your budget limits you, or some activities do not interest you, you will not feel "left out".  There is more to do on this ship in one week than you can imagine.

As we have done the ports on this cruise many times in the pas,t and have friends & favorite itineraries,  I limit my comments to the ship.

Unlike most ships we ave experienced. New, bold design, and exciting. An experience to enjoy no matter what the ports and room type.
