If the original Nobu black miso cod is available in Silk Road, be sure to indulge. It's one of the best entrees I have ever had, anywhere. However, on my last cruise it was not available in Silk...

I want as many sea days and as few ports as possible! My last cruise had 12 sea days (5, then 7, with a single stop in between), and my next cruise will have 15 sea days in a 17 day cruise.

I find the idea of those studio cabins for solo passengers on NCL to be an insult to solo passengers, offering them a "special deal" on the worst real estate and the smallest cabins on the ship. ...

Yes, premium economy on the 300, and it was terrific. I'm glad you got your flight changed. Those Spaceseats are great, and more than worth the price difference
