Perfect size and location for me. Some might say a little noisey, but I knew when we arrived in port.

Ship tip

Corporate greed is in full force here. There are problems with the ship and instead of putting the vessel out of service to repair, NCL will just cancel ports at the last minute and think an extra sea day is ok.

Captain decided he did not want to go there. Claimed a weather problem, instead of telling us about the problem with the ship.

Port Stanley, Falkland Islands

even was able to stay an extra 9 hours floating in the water due to ship problems.

Puerto Madryn, Argentina

Captain decided he did not want to visit this stop either and thought we would all like 3 days in a row at sea.
