We just returned from the Norway in early Sept. We are booked to go again at the end of March. We were told they would not go to the free style cruising as they would be repositioning her next Sept. But what they have done is a quasi-free style. You can eat Breakfast and Lunch in either dining room at any time the dining rooms are open (I think 7:00-9:30 for breakfast and 11:00-2:00 lunch). Dinner is still assigned seating.
We had a P3 penthouse. The room was approximately 300 sq. ft. It had a full bath - fairly large, a king size bed, dressing table, refrig, safe, closet and drawer space. In addition, it had a sofa bed and table. Free water, both plain and spritzer every day, top quality shampoos and soaps, fresh towels twice a day, all the ice you could want, full menu room service (lower categories only get to choose from a limited menu) all day including whatever was being served in the dining rooms! Bathrobes for each guest - but they are one size fits all, and all must be a size 5! Champagne and Flowers on arrival, chocolate dipped strawberries, (I am sure I am forgetting a few things) but the most important part is the congiere service, she was great and invaluable! She will make arrangements for shore excursions, tendar service, reservations at Le Bistro (when everyone else can do it just 24 hours in advanced). She will open the lines of credit for you instead of standing in line, and much much more.
We would not travel any other way now that we have experienced 1st class service!
Enjoy your cruise.
