For destinations you could not beat this cruise!!!!!! But for accommodations it was bad. Also it felt like we were being "nickeled and dimed" to death. This ship is old and not clean and this made coming back on the ship discouraging. The best place was the "Raffles Terrace". It was clean, beautiful views and the crew was awesome.

Great ship, outstanding staff & very clean, and interesting ports. Food was only average or less, especially dinning room food. Recommend you improve it or turn it into another buffet / modified to be a combination of buffet and dinning room (service).

Over all a great cruise itinerary though I don't need to do a 10-day again (as I was ready to get back on land after all that time haha). The booking experience with and staff onboard the ship were great and we had some really amazing port days. I just highly recommend private tours as opposed to group tours booked through or NCL since you can see so much more and get that better personalized touch in each port on your own.

Hit the Windows restaurant right when they open at 5:30pm and you can get a seat right by the windows.

Bring a good pair of binoculars for the great views you will see.

Eat at one of two main dining rooms as much as possible for exceptional steak, seafood, etc. If you do that most of the time (rather than the buffet), no need to pay for premium dining. Also, a great 24 hour diner on board has amazing chicken wings and fish n' chips... beats the buffet!
