Cabin: Inside Stateroom

We have sailed with NCL on three separate occasions. East, West and Southern Caribbean. We long ago decided NCL was a 5 Star experience all the way. The booking staff wernt over and above our expectations. They were excellent. Well done Susie. The incredible low price. My bank account always smiled and reminded me this was a very good choice. The cabins. Never too small. Our room was always very comfortable and we always felt warm and cozy. We were so happy with the inside and downstairs. Exactly what we asked for. One thing for sure we always had a good night's sleep.

Breakfast delivered every morning to our cabin. Thank you NCL. What is important to me and what always impressed me is the very high standard NCL sets for itself. The very best of the food. NCL always has an excellent way of doing business. Especially when it comes to eating out. Our choice was simple. Pick from a number of fine dining restaurants. The menu was always so interesting. We made a different choice every single night. Not forgetting their famous Irish pub and enough said about the Guinness.

My wife and I love the more relaxed atmosphere of NCL. It's always impresses me their come and go as you please. They call it Freestyle, I had never heard that phrase before our first cruise. Pure gold. Freestyle appears to be the mantra of all things NCL. Eat in, eat out, whenever you want off for a sleep, go sit at the pool. The upper deck & relaxation, drinky poo all day long. Morning, noon and night. Great outdoor music and ievery kind of style. All partying is included. Best of all and what I love about NCL is their unique philosophy '"It's all about you and we are honored to have you aboard" The staff work very, very hard to pamper each and every passenger. Remember they are always working. They are not your Facebook friend. Smile and they'll smile back. If time allows they will stay and chat. If you give or do the high five you get one. Be kind, always be respectfull remember to be patient. If you need a little cheer, need a kind word, heck thet would even tuck you in if it was allowed. Remember, happiness and good company is all included if you are willing to make the first move. We always appreciate that they are working far away from their family. Not one staff members are rich and yet they always make this poor Irishman feel like a millionaire.
