This is the 2nd time I have had the privilege to sail with this ship in the last year. Everything is still great. I did post a review after the Alaska cruise this last summer. The only thing different this time is that I found the steam/sauna area! Feel embarrassed that it took me this long to find the facility. It is on the 11th deck, opposite the workout area. I always thought that was a pricey business for massage and attention to women’s hair. Well it may be that, but it also does contain the sauna and steam room, along with a shower facility.

Only other pearl of wisdom I wish to share with you is the secret about Eggs Benedict. If you ask your waiter, they will be able to tell you the specific morning when it will be served (and only in the dining room, probably 7 Seas, not the 11th deck breakfast area). Your waiter can also tell you which night will feature Lobster/Baked Alaska for dinner. (many times it will be the same night as the Eggs Benedict)

They no longer allow passengers to view the bridge. That was a great part of the experience for us last summer. It is a shame that security concerns have eliminated that from your choices.

If you have an inside cabin, be sure to bring a nightlight.

The Piano/vocalist person (Rob Ellis) that we had the good fortune to experience last summer is now elsewhere. If he happens to be on your ship, appreciate him dearly. Many of the other musicians who try to fill that role don't come close to his skill level. Rob does sell CD's of his work, but I have not been able to get NCL to tell me how to obtain one. (once we are off the ship, NCL doesn't seem to want any further contact)
