Review summary

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

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
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

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

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
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..

Ship tip

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