Cabin: Balcony Stateroom

Chose this cruise because of its itinerary and that the "at sea" portion would be no more than 4 days at a time.

Would not accept on-line reservations for complimentary dining rooms. A Maitre'D and Restaurant Hostess were wonderful in helping us with that problem. The tendering process for Great Stirrup Cay was a mess mainly as a result of the Cruise Next Manager who was tasked with informing Latitude members of the process. So was the passport inspection in Miami with some passengers being held hostage in the terminal for up to 5 hours. Although this was blamed on the U.S. Border Service, NCL should have known about the process, asked for changes or at least informed the passengers. Dining service in the main dining rooms was disorganized. Staff needed floor plans of the room to seat people. Food was brought to the wrong tables and orders misunderstood or misinterpreted by the galley.

Air Canada deprived my spouse of her luggage till day 7 into the cruise but we were greatly assisted with this distressing matter by Guest Services staff.

Cabin Review

Balcony Stateroom

Cabin was situated near the aft elevator, exactly where we wanted it. That provides easy access to the dining venues and stability in rough seas.

As on the Escape, the sofa bed crowds the closet making it difficult to get into. Balcony was very small but big enough for 2.

Port Reviews

Copenhagen

What ever happened to n/a. If one did not take an excursion, one cannot rate it, can they?

Le Havre

Same comment applies as for Copenhagen.....should be n/a.

Cobh (Cork)

On our own, walked around town and visited the cathedral. Great place.

Ponta Delgada

Port was bypassed due to weather.

King's Wharf

Toured the Naval Dockyards on our own.

Great Stirrup Cay

Tendering process was a mess.
