We tried an inside cabin on our last cruise, for the first time. I didn't mind it, but the wife didn't because she slept too much!

I agree, you sleep long in an inside cabin. I just didn't want to spend the extra money on an ocean view when every stop we will be going on a shore excursion.

I really disliked my one Norwegian cruise. It had terrible food. The stateroom was filthy when I got there. Moreover, the entertainment was bad and felt less impressive than my other cruiselines. We have also been on Celebrity and especially Princess -- both are much better. We prefer Princess over all of the others and have stuck with it.

Of course this is a matter of opinion and we all differ but as for cleanliness: check CDC" NCL has fantastic ratings, among the top so I have to wonder when you cruised them and what ship? this is the same with the entertainment: always at the top when you check reviews. As for the food, let's face it, food is very subjective. Many do not care for NCL's food as much as other lines. WE think it has vastly improved over the past few years.

Can't wait to get on the cruise and check out NCL for myself. The countdown is on Nov 25th we leave for 15 days.

I did have a question though. On Carnival they let you bring a 12 pack per person of soda. My DH has to have his diet dr. pepper, and 1 bottles of wine per person. I forgot to ask when I called NCL if you can do that or if they have other rules. Also is their hair dryers in the cabins?

From their website:
“Effective for sailings July 15, 2016 and beyond, guests are prohibited from bringing any beverages -- including liquor, beer and non-alcoholic drinks such as water, soda and juices -- on board either as carry-on or checked luggage,…“

You are right: most mass marketed lines have cracked down on bringing any drinks on prior to sailing and for good reason I may add.

I’m not sure why anyone would want to bring water on board but what’s the “good reason” for not allowing passengers to bring it on the ship?

Number 1 I was generalizing and number: even bringing water on costs revenue loss to the cruise lines. remember there are a lot of people out there that only drink bottled water. If they could bring it on why would anyone pay the cost the ships charge, just like a restaurant. We just paid 25 cents just for a paper cup for our "free" water at a local chain fast food restaurant. Does that explain why cruise lines are cracking down of drinks brought on ship?

Yes, I understand the revenue aspect.
