Cruisecritic meet & greet was awesome, ncl knows how to do this right, had a follow up session with officers before departure, what a great touch. New orleans: great port of departure always fun to walk bourbon street and get coffee at cafe dumonde. Embarkation: was very quick and easy, smooth process like they know exactly what they are doing. new orleans is a very organized cruise ship port. Ship: very well maintained (i should know i was in the navy for 20 years). Very fresh and clean. Cabin: was exactly as described, smaller than carnival cabins but very well laid out so you get the best of all the space. we went cheap and did balcony only, will do a mini-suite balcony next time for more space, but it was very cheap so were very satisfied with our room. Entertainment: did the piano player mostly and he was awesome. casino was fun too. Service was fantastic everywhere, drinks were awesome!! Loved great outdoors and the martini bar. Ate at cagney's one night it was very good. One bad experience had a soap dispenser in spa shower fall on my toe and i had to get medical attention, they didn't answer 911 when i called and were certainly not very concerned about me as much as liability, its a shame because this event ruined what would have been a perfect cruise. even though i had xrays onboard, it still hurts really bad 2 weeks later, i will have to go to my doctor.

Fun Time, Nice Ship, Will do it again!!

Cabin Review

Mid-Ship Balcony
Cabin BA 9130
Very nice room, quiet and well located. I would recommend this room. All Norwegian balcony rooms are small so if you can afford do the mini-suite. But if only 2 people traveling this is a great room at a great price.
