The majority of the cruise there were announcements three to four times a day stating CDC requirements required them to make the announcement that a number of crew and or guest are experiencing gastrointestinal problem and you should wash your hands often. They removed all silverware and condiments from the buffet, handed you plates and silverware and served you the food. In the restaurants you were handed paper menus and they were constantly washing handrails, elevators and disinfected your key card every time you got a drink from the bar. As for entertainment, they played old movies (like Ocean 8) in the Atrium and kept recycling about 5 movies. The disembarkement process was terrible, the announced that everyone needed to be off by 9 AM however they did not start calling checked bag colors until 9. We have cruised NCL a number of times and would say this was the worse. All we wanted to do was get off the ship.
