Well – to accomplish it easy: you can pay added – and you get more… but I am consistently allurement myself is there a allegation to acquire added and absorb the money for addition cruise for some abundance of one cruise only.
With NCL I can allow balconies while with the aforementioned account I would alone get lower categories.
But you allegation acquire some lower standards in the chargeless food.
Our cruise started in Copenhagen. A abundant abandonment port. Close to airport. Alone problems aback you are addition acutely “cheap” and loves to backpack your accoutrements 20 account to the abutting accessible carriage an on weekends. But pre-/post-cruise could be a little added big-ticket than about abroad as Copenhagen is not the cheapest burghal but admirable and account to see. Drop-off accoutrements at curbside: no problem, check-in: no botheration either.
As we absolutely acquire a abundant TA with abundant acquirement with NCL and abundant contacts we got an advancement from Balustrade to Mini-Suite.
The Mini-Suite was aloof (like the accomplished ship) from a time breadth amphibian activity decides. Abundant furnitures – abundant space. Alone botheration was aperture to balustrade and the drawers allegation to anchored for accidental movements. Walkable closet and a seperate adorableness table incl. beard dryer in the bathroom: wonderful! Alone disadvantage: ablution tub instead of battery – abnormally if you had sea movements and no handle to get in or out.
Our berth abettor did a actual acceptable job and every appropriate appeal we had was done asap.
The address itself had amplitude and amphibian feeling. Not like NORWEGIAN EPIC which reminds added to a amphibian bank mall… You had abundant lounges like Observation Lounge to attending advanced – not like NORWEGIAN STAR/DAWN alone attractive back! You had atriums which gives you the activity how alpine the address is with bottle elevators.
Open deck: not so awash that you acquire the activity to be awkward with others.
Well… food… We did not die of hunger… but somehow aberration and affection become worse and worse. Alike aback you pay added like with the Musical bruch: Apricot as starter, apricot as entree… and the abutting canicule apricot apricot salmon… Compared to our aftermost acquaintance on NORWEGIAN JADE it was poorer: like Cesar’s Salad: no options like anchovies or tabasco. It was apparent and you can top chicken, shrimps or croutons. As they awash 2 for 1 you had additionally actual “cheap” fellow-cruisers: no addiction how to chain up and blank absolute queues, blame you abroad because they access and allegation space, aboriginal accession afore cafe was accomplished and starting to abundance desserts afore coffee was served because they were abashed that aback they accomplished their access the desserts ability be gone. I am accommodating to pay 20 or 25 USD to acquire a nicer atmosphere but such guests who acutely never alternate to any bigger buffets before. Accordingly PLEASE NO MORE 2 for 1-OFFERS!!!
They still had cream and turf, but with two shrimps instead of a lobster tail. But they still acquire lobster.
Lunch in the MDR: aforementioned every day! No accepted variation.
The action day by day: bounded specialities for cafeteria and dinner: but if you get a aide who does not apperceive and they forgot to affectation you do not get it.
But alike the bounded specialities: annihilation upscale: things like Meat Loaf, Saussage, Wiener Schnitzel.
Soups: as I am a soup lover and so I was absolutely aghast that flavour was a chat the chef in allegation for soups did not know. They had canicule simple things like craven borsch were accomplished and added canicule it tasted like water.
Before you book Royal Caribbean or Carnival: they are not bigger either – but NCL lower their standards afterwards than Royal Caribbean.
We had two occassions to eat two dinners in Le Bistro and Moderno. Le Bistro banausic so far (Latitudes Platin) and Moderno: not as acceptable as on NORWEGIAN EPIC due to accommodation reasons: cafe is abate on NORWEGIAN SUN so article which we knew from NORWEGIAN EPIC was missing. Nevertheless: an acquaintance you should not miss.
A new acquaintance was Las Ramblas Tapas-Restaurant… able-bodied I could not say that this reminded me actual abundant to classical Spanish Tapas-Bars but it was a nice abode to sit and acquire music or to acquire a snack.
It was the added time that we were fatigued for the Hosted Banquet Table. No abstraction why they put us on a authentic German speaking table. I had to apprentice that the HR Manager and the Staff Captain are not the aforementioned being and it was abundant to apprentice abounding abounding new things during this dinner. I can alone acclaim to go to the advanced board and let them apperceive that you are absorbed to accompany this event. It’s adulatory and you get chargeless drinks you commonly acquire to pay and actual nice aggregation like us.
It was our aboriginal time on NCL to accompany the Chef’s Table. But candidly COMPARED to Princess and Carnival the 75.00 USD was a little poor aback you get affable books and aliment alertness in the galley! Furthermore the “best” was a dogie chop while you get Lobster Thermidor on Princess! It was additionally a little sad: it was authority the night aback we set captain in Torshavn and so we absent the access amid the islands as our abstracted banquet allowance was kept dark. We allegation to say it was still a abundant aliment and account acquaintance we would not like to absence and accordingly a acumen to be aboriginal onboard on NORWEGIAN SPIRIT in January 2013 to book it.
The coffee was an up and bottomward and my adolescent had his French Press and his own coffee with him.
What was actual good: Breakfast variation: you can acquire in the MDR if you like la carte or buffet. And if you did not acquisition annihilation in the card you can aloof top by aliment from the cafe and carnality versa. A “secret”: Breakfast at Moderno: about the aforementioned accepted like with the VIP breakfast in Il Adagio but no balmy menu.
Although the aliment could be bigger we acquire that we had to “suffer” because of the abundant crew. We absolutely did not accepted anyone ability be onboard whom we apperceive but aloof 10 account afterwards abandonment we heared already “Welcome aback onobard – nice to acquire you aback with us again!”. There were so abounding acceptable “friends” with the aggregation that they alike could apprehend our mind: like I did not get the aforementioned teabag I am acclimated to have: addition who served us abounding times afore came and asked what was wrong. I commonly say: aback you acquire a allocation of 90 acceptable / 10 bad – I can alive with it. But with NCL you commonly acquire 98 /2 but on this cruise it as 99.5 / 0.5!!! Maybe because of the ship’s management: Richard Jarnicki whom we apperceive from antecedent cruise and his absolute aggregation did absolutely aggregate to accomodate us. The chat “No” we acquire never heared. We can alone say: we had no affidavit to go home and acquaint bodies not to go NCL.
We assuredly fabricated it to “Shout” afterwards we absent so abounding times on NORWEGIAN JADE. A abundant appearance – best of the songs I downloaded afterwards as iTunes. “Rock it” we did not like, so we larboard afterwards few account as it was too adamantine and too loud for us (Sorry: too adolescent to be “EasyRider”-Generation”). Claire Maidin was nice but aback she had an added Matinee appearance we larboard additionally aboriginal as she started to echo songs from her 1st appearance which we did not like. Rope artists are not my apple but we backward to see the aggregation farewell… Anyhow we were so active that we had no added time see anything. Jaime was a abundant Cruise Director and absolutely one who was accessible for their guests. The alone affair I allegation to claim: if guests are application arresting horns to afflict the achievement it’s no fun – it’s a acumen to accelerate security.
We went on cruises and we accomplished additionally concierges whose anatomy accent let you apperceive “Do not bother me aback you are not a suite-guest and alone Latitudes Platinum”. But not David Contreras: he showed up afterwards few days, allurement how we were as he was apprehensive that we never showed up so far and told us one added time that he was there to abetment us and we should not be shy and come. A abundant concierge.
I anticipate they could amusement their Latitudes Platinum guests better: You get a letter what you affectionate of amneties you get. Like “fruit basket”. Never delivered but a box of amber (Godiva but the cheapest selection!!!): Background: guests can airing to the Garden Cafe and grab their fruits. That was why they beatific chocolate. Nightly amber was never available: acumen run out – could not acquisition any bazaar in Copenhagen to buy new one… 10 addtional account for internet and alone once. Cheese and Wine for Gold and Platinum: account went not fast enough: so guests took abroad tray with cheese from aide and bear to their accompany and ancestors while bistro from the tray.
What was great: aback you accustomed aback from your tours addition was consistently there to acceptable you with balmy and algid beverages or cakes and a hot/cold towel. Article we alike did not get with Holland America with 100 F in Asia!
We choosed the cruise because of the itinerary:
Copenhagen, Denmark: as we knew Copenhagen able-bodied we accustomed actual backward and absorb Saturday in Karen Blixen Museum (Out of Africa) and Kronborg (Hamlet’s to be or not to be). We absent an insigth of Louisiana as our US-friends had to see the airport because their accoutrements were missed. But we were on vacation – so no stress. The banquet we met Danish friends. The day of abandonment we absorb a little time in Malm’ in Sweden afore abiding to Copenhagen to get on the ship.
Bergen, Norway: 90% of the canicule of the year it is raining. So what? It was raining. We accelerate our accompany to Norway in a Nutshell BUT the bout offered by Fjordtours on baiter (Naer’yfjord), alternation (Flaam-Railways) and bus (Stalheim) and sitting with the ship’s bout 27 afar in a adit to absence the UNESCO Apple Heritage. We backward the day in Bergen and went on Mt. Fl’yen and did some shopping. In the black we larboard with our accompany on Hurtigruten (Norwegian Coastal Line) Bergen to Aalesund.
Aalesund, Norway: Hurtigruten was testing the accepting of H’jrundfjord instead of Geirangerfjord for the abutting year. So we were advantageous to go into the basin what we absent with NCL: Aalesund itself: division was over and they did not go to Geirangerfjord – how sad! We alternate by taxis who took us to Geirangerfjord in Hellesylt and Mt. Aksa aback to our ship.
Lerwick, Shetland Island, Scottland: we busy a car and collection ourselves to Jarshof to buy some gloves and hats. A calm day.
Torshavn, Faroe Islands: the anchorage with the everyman expectations! So I acquainted the appropriate to abolish aloof in case the acclimate ability be too bad. But the bout went that day. The bout abettor abiding that we had a one-way and allegation not acknowledgment with our baiter the accomplished way aback and so could see added and abiding that accessible bus would delay for us. We acquire not apparent one bird on the bird bluff tour. But aloof the boating on the accessible bus from Torshavn to Vestmanna was account to see. It was calm because my 20 fellow-cruisers who followed me (it was a accessible accessible bout anybody could accompany and I did not appetite them to accept etc…) were so afraid of the backdrop that cipher said a chat on the tour. Afterwards already they saw the baiter for the ship’s bout and our baiter it was the moment they admired to annihilate me. But our baby Viking baiter could access grottos etc.. Aforementioned with the baiter tour: cipher spokes… what should you say, aback you acquire Kau’ai (Hawai’ian Island), Norwegian Fjords and Halong-Bay (Vietnam) at one distinct place. It was the bigger abruptness for me and I definately appetite to appear aback and see it afresh but with birds.
Reykjavik, Iceland: abominably I got the aforementioned morning a bulletin that a actual acceptable acquaintance anesthetized away. So my absorption to The Golden Circle bout was actual limited. We appointed a accessible tour. It was cheaper and was fine. Geysir, Guldenvoss, Thingstatte… all the essentials. We backward the night in Reykjavik because we anticipation that Iceland was account to see more. So the abutting day we did Perlan (Saga Museum), a helicopter ride and Blue Lagoon. While the day afore bags of buses accustomed we had alone about 30 cars in advanced of the Blue Lagoon.
Greenock, Scotland: So we had the luck to absence the 2 canicule at sea with 15 ft aerial waves. Aback we accustomed the day beforehand in Glasgow we abreast the anchorage abettor and I allegation some time to align some flowers for the funeral. So the afternoon we went to Edinburgh to see the Royal Yacht Britannia and accommodated accompany for banquet with archetypal Scottish food. The abutting day we followed our friends’ advocacy to see the Loch Lomond breadth and had added scones for our US-friends. It was nice – but afterwards Torshavn it was somehow a little weak… Aggregate was done by a busy car.
Dublin, Ireland: Afresh we appointed a clandestine auto bout for Glendalough and Powerscourt. Able-bodied Glendalough was not my apple as I abhorrence agglomeration of old stones (but aforementioned with Stonehenge, temples on Malta or Ostia Antica… but I admired Angkor Wat, Tulum, Leptis Magna or Ephesus…) The Powerscourt were account the money and time. But best was the cafeteria our disciplinarian took us with for. Never had bigger corned-beef afore and fun!!!
One account says added than bags words:
Here in the postings of the boards you acquisition pictures of our boating incl. advice of the ports and contest on board:
there were few little anemic credibility but I would do this bout afresh and I would acclaim all my best accompany to go on this cruise again.
You cannot get added for the amount we paid! You can pay added and get more! But I accept to go addition cruise for this budget.
I achievement that addition from NCL apprehend this too and booty it as afflatus to become bigger with the food. I do not apperception to pay a little added if I get a little college accepted with the food.
But do not blow your crew: wonderful: can I accept them for my home?
