Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
We are not bothered about balconies or suites , we’re always Happy with simple inside cabin Which is fine for us , we were close to mid ship stairs and lifts so very Convenient Only minor downside was we were below restaurants above so lots of chairs/ tables being moved whilst we tried to sleep

Nice ship recently updated very well , our first NCL cruise and it was very good

Disembarkation

5 out of 5
We got off straight away , with our own bags , didn’t wait for them to call us tbh The only criticism I would have with Norwegian is the chaos created with The tendering process for most of the stops on this cruise , it was chaos every time . Everybody was unhappy
