Number of Cruises: First Cruise
Cruise Line: Norwegian
Ship: Norwegian Sea
Sailing Date: October 26th, 2003
Itinerary: Repositioning Cruise
I did a lot of reading on-line before this our first cruise. The value of a repositioning cruise was outstanding. The entire crew of the Norwegian Sea was superior. Food was excellent. Many choices and the freestyle system works as far as we are concerned. Room was cozy with plenty of storage. The bathroom comments I had read were perhaps a bit overblown. I am 6'2" and found the shower a bit tight. I would say the bathroom was like an airline bathroom with a shower thrown in. I had more trouble with hot water in the shower than I did with the size of the shower. The cruise director and his staff were as good as there can be. Information on the upcoming ports was accurate and well presented. The staff at the Dive-In program on the ship went "overboard" in providing for our snorkeling experience. The friendliness of the entire crew set a tone that made the whole cruise a friendly encounter.
The nightly entertainment was excellent. Two of the comedians were outstanding. The NCL entertainers, despite a stage that handicapped their work, were very good. Bottom line. Norwegian should be proud of this ship and its people.
