Well maybe two issues. We all came off the cruise very ill with upper respiratory infections. I hope we were in the minority. A week later, we are all still quite ill. Maybe we will live for another cruise. We took this cruise too explore the ports. 3 of us had been to Casablanca before and really wanted to visit the market place, the old medina. Didn't happen on the excursion. The description of the excursion was very clear we would go. The tour operator was rude when I asked and gave a bunch of excuses. The shipboard excursion folk not much better. My critique of the situation is not posted on the NCL page. Even though it met crieria. Seems like NCL doesn't like feedback. We could have done without most of the excursions but the NCL site said there were no shuttles. That was incorrect we later learned. NCL was not too forthcoming on that front either. We liked the ship and thought the trip was good value but were really disappointed that we got blown off by NCL when we told them the description on their website and the actual activity differed so much. Of course they believed the tour operator not the customer. Hmmmmm. The food was ok. Drinks and wifi horribly expensive. There were no quiet places to read and the ship is really too crowded when weather is poor. The loud bingo and other noise needs to be segregated. It was really intrusive. All was clean and nice. Staff nice. Good entertainment except they shine bright lights at the audience's eyes in the theatre. Except for the excursion issue and feeling disappointed in the response, it was a good cruise.  

Only one issue
