Taking Norwegian for the first time Easter Sunday and I booked a studio cabin. I'm actually very excited about it. I found I didn't need so much space in an ocean view on Carnival. I'm simple like that lol.
Any tips for meeting times in the lounge? Are the room stewards just as caring to a studio as they are other cabins? Any pro tips to get the best out of the lounge? Is the dining package worth it as a solo on breakaway?
Hello, I did the Studio on the Epic, then the Studio on the Breakaway but upgraded the week before to a Balcony for little $. You might want to inquire about it a few weeks before depending on how full your sailing is. Right now, it looks like it could be a busier week, prices could fall though.
(Currently I am back in the Breakaway Studio in the fall).
The more I think about it, sometimes I think the Studio was a better fit as it was just there for sleeping and changing during the day. It had a sleek and modern feel to it. Defintely better than an outside porthole I had on the Jewel.
I would not do the dining package as you might prefer eating with others in the MDR vs. by yourself in a speciality depending what the group of people do.
I would attend the meeting time of I think 5pm especially the 1st day, and then maybe pop in for coffee in the morning.
As a solo you can get in the lounge anytime, once I upgraded I could only get in easily for the daily gatherings at around 5. We sometimes as the week progressed did not stay that long. Once you meet people, typically I have found as the week goes on you can make plans to meet up later.
Also, if you book any shows, book them later- don't book a show 7pm when people might be eating. If you want to do something like the Cirque show- pick it for the last night.
