I must say that based on previous reviews I was concerned about the overall quality of this ship and the itinerary. When we got on board I noticed right away how picky the past reviews really were. We had a fantastic time on our cruise! This was our 5th cruise and we were very happy with our experience. The food was great every night and the room service was excellent! Our cabin was cleaned 2 times per day and more than met our expectations. The shows were a lot of fun and the crew were so nice to us. We put our name in for dinner with an officer and had the opportunity to talk with him and enjoyed visiting with him very much! I would highly recommend a balcony room as we enjoyed it everyday after a long day sightseeing. The ports of call were safe and refreshing. Can't wait to book our next cruise with Norweigan. The only negative part was the internet. It would be nice to have FREE wifi while in port.

Bring your own soda pop on board. They were charging $75 per person for unlimited soda!! We learned this little tip a couple of cruises ago. Also, use the soda bottles to refill with water for your shore excursions. A 2 liter bottle of water will run you $6 per bottle! Don't drink tap water locally.
