Good for Retirees and Married Couples, Less So for Singles

My perspective: Single young male no kids, looking for good blackjack, dancing, maybe younger singles groups to meet people my age. Not too picky on room nor food. Novice cruiser. A bit nerdy. I do not smoke nor ...

Aft Penthouse Room 0064 good cruise for the money

The perks of the suite are totally worth it.....This was our 5th cruise, 4th with children. I must say the Norwegian Sky isn't really set up to keep a tween & teenager occupied so skip it if that's your situation, ...
