Balmoral's Library/Reading/Writing Room & Internet Room [along with the Card Room & Braemar Lounge] occupy the areas of the Crown Club & Crown Club Casino on Norwegian Crown, midships to port. Lovely rooms & again with many paintings and pictures lining the walls. The Library is in the same 'circular' layout with compass on the floor as onboard Black Watch & Boudicca, with different colourings. In the centre of the Library is a large model of the C? Norwegian Warship ??? Books are available 24hrs, with a fair selection of foreign language ones too. CDs & DVDs are available for loan between 16:00 – 17:00 each day.
The Internet Room has 17 terminals [no wi-fi] but the cost is prohibitive. Access is by one's key card & charges accrue by the amount downloaded, not by time. So if you access a webpage with a continuously downloading banner or similar, the charges increase constantly. Merely logging onto my email cost £1.22.. with nothing looking urgent I logged off quickly. A tablemate spent over £9 replying to a single email, only for a 404 on 'send'. He was refunded. I heard no end of people complaining about the cost.
