Hard to find a bar hostess/waitress. Had to go find an open bar, then wait. Shows booked by day two. Was able to book 1 comedy club night, had to wait in stand by line for other. First cruise I’ve been on that you had to pay EXTRA for the shows. Hard to get sit down lunch, only 1 open for a later lunch and long wait. Unlimited bar drinks that cost over $800, didn’t include bottled water, that was extra. Paid extra for steak house, they forgot my meal, brought it 15 minutes later, and it as WELL DONE. They gave me a bottle of wine to day sorrry. Nice try but I don’t care for wine and I had the unlimited alcohol package, so my wine was free anyway. Much of the food was good. Most of the drinks were good. The ship was clean. The ports were good. This was my 18th cruise, first Norwegian, and last Norwegian.

More money, less service, shows booked
