We took this cruise because it had the ports we wanted to visit. The shows were very good. We loved the Orchid and O'Sheehans. The food in the Orchid was excellent. WE enjoyed the barbeque by the pool on Sea days and then they went around with mango smoothies and fruit on skewers. They had plenty of seats at the pool even on sea days. The food in the main dining room was ok. The muster stations were inside which was good since it was cold out. Disembarkation went smoothly. We were off the ship at 8:00 AM. Embarkation was slow since the ship came in late. We din't get on the ship until 2:15 PM. We have never been on the NCL smaller ships and were pleasantly surprised. We had an inside cabinet. There was plenty of closet space and drawers to put our clothing away. The bathroom had shelves. The refrigerator kept food nice and cold. The service was very good. We had a very nice time on this ship. it seemed very cozy.

Room was very clean. Had ample closet and drawer space. Refrigerator was great....keep everything cold. The air conditioning worked very well. Wish the night tables had drawers.
