The article by Shirley Slater and Harry Basch in Cruise Views about the Nordic Prince (June 30) said, "There are no alluring little corners for a quiet chat or a place to read." I was on the Nordic Prince seven years ago. There is a small sitting room off the main sitting lounge near the lobby, but no smoking or drinking is allowed, and you can watch the sea go by out of the port-side windows.
