Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

We were well pleased with our cruise. We had an inside cabin and was very pleased with the room and storage capability. The bathroom was large enough so that it functioned well. Bed was very comfortable even if a little tight getting in/out on the sides of the bed. 

We primarily used the basic restaurants and although the service was quite slow especially in the main Grand Pacific.. The Alkazar seemed to have better service and they both had the same menu. The decor and atmosphere at the GP was nicer but we prefered the better service at Alkazar.. Entertainment was great. We enjoyed all the shows and had a good variey of entertainment at the bars. Swimning pool was nice and the Spa area was enjoyable. My first 7 day cruise and would definately consider going on NCL once again

Cabin / Stateroom
very pleased. compact but big enough to feel comfortable. after all you usually don't spend much time in your cabin except to sleep and bathe..
Embarkation and Disembarkation
very pleased with all aspects of leaving and entering ship. even when tenders were necassary they did an excellant job of handling the crowds
Ship Quality
Very happy with cleanliness.. saw staff cleaning at all times and did not have one instance where I felt ship was not clean. Could use a little more decoration in Alkazar restaurant
Destinations and Excursions
loved all the destinations . wish there was a way to give more time but I realize its a long trip and necessary to keep a scheduke
Onboard Activities
There was always something going on. Did not use a lot but was we did was fun.
Children's Programs
did not use
Shows were varied and all were entertaining. Good variety of entertainment at bars and the pool area.
Service and Staff
Did not really use the cabin service but he was freindly and checked with us frenguently to see if we needed anything. Other staff was very freindly and helfull. Everyone seemed to enjoy their jobs.
Food and Dining
The brazilian steak house was the only specialty restaurant we used and was not especially happy with our choice. Everyone we talked to however had great things to say about the steak restaurant . Its more expensive by itself but with a 3 restaurant package it is same price as others. I had the soda package and was a little disaponted in that you had to use the bars to get soda which usually meant very slow service and the bartenders did not seem very happy about just providing soda. less tips i guess
Venice, Italy
Corfu, Greece
Had a great time on all our stops. some people got together and rented a prsonal driver to take them around the island. much more flexibilty than guided tours.
Santorini, Greece
Mykonos, Greece
Katakolon (Olympia), Greece


The Spa gives specials during the cruise so you can get good services at good prices by booking the specials
