WE were very pleased with every aspect of our NCL cruise.  The food was far superior to other lines we have cruised with.  Only disappointment was our cabin smelling of smoke every day from 5 pm throughout early morning hours.  WE reported on several times.  Officials came in, agreed with our complaint - wiped down walls and sprayed deodorizer.  Was coming from location above our cabin.

Only complaint on cabin was the cigarette smoke smell daily as I addressed in comment section above.

Ship Tip

Loved the quiet deck directly forward for sunbathing. We chose a guaranteed cabin, so I did not pick the particular cabin. Was located under an area where smoking was allowed - hence the smoke smell daily in our cabin.
