Review summary

This was our first NCL cruise, we had a geat time and looking forward to a future cruise with NCL. We booked this as a last minute cruise and were very pleased with the Cabin we recieved. There is a lot you can do on this ship. We enjoyed relaxing and spending time at the thermal Spa.

Service and Staff

Most of the staff encountered were top notch. The best we encountered were in the Spa and our room Steward Rosser.

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
Ship was very clean and the layout was very good. I do not care for the way th Casino is set up and the fact you feel like you are smoking just walking through.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
For us the cabin was good sized, plenty of storage, and our room Steward Rosser kept it very clean.
