Room Type: Oceanview

Upon arrival we were greeted nicely, mind you, we had
just flown 10 hours and has been up for over 20 at this point. There was a short wait due to processing our room
assignments and then I was given a beautiful lei and our
pictures were taken. I usually don't like that part especially when one looks terrible after such a long journey.
Our rooms were neat and clean and we were greeted again
by our caretakers, they were very nice. They kept us well
informed about everything and the cruise director was great.
The entertainment was fabulous, food terrific and we just
loved Captain Lairs. He was informative and funny as well.
I knew the ship was smaller and I would prefer traveling
on a larger ship the next time. I was not impressed with
the interrior and not having a grand entry way made for
a rather different mood. All in all, the crew was very
helpful and we would travel again with NCL for the fact
that we enjoy the freestyle dining experience.
