This was our second cruise out of NYC with Norwegian. No complaints. We had an indecent on our second night with the ship getting hit with a strong wind gust and the ship listing to one side for about 5 minutes. It wasn't as bad as it was made out to be in the news reports. Yes it was scary but the crew handled it well and clean up was quick and by 6:00 am the next morning there was no indication of damage. You are always going to have negative complainers. I actually heard people complaining to the staff that they should have been warned about this unforeseen natural phenomenon. How could the crew possibly predict a gust of wind. I see others complaining about long lines to get on the ship as well as once you are on the ship. We didn't experience either of these issues. Yes you needed to wait your turn and I think that is the issue with a lot of the people you hear complaining on these reviews. The only real complaint I have is with other guests. Rules ignored, rude behavior, and child like tantrums if they didn't get their way.

Great Cruise
