First let me start off by saying the embarkation was very organized Maybe it took 30 minutesstart to finish. The food was excellent the service was amazing. I have been on 30 cruises this was the best service and food. BUT AND THIS IS A BIG BUT!!!!! The shipped sailed into winds of 115 mph hurricane 3 force winds And this 19 story 165 thousand ton ship tilted and listed a On a 45 degree angle for maybe 5 -7 minutes which is quite long when your terrified . Glasses and dishes breaking . People crying screaming sliding holding on for dear life. A slot machine feel on top of a woman causing her serious injury . The Rccl Athem left the same time and same route managed to avoid this ..... how could the Captain not know what he was sailing into. The ship looked like a scene from the titanic... that being said the crew worked all night to put it all back to normal .... hats off to them ..... I am a world trade survivor I know terror this came very close we just kepted tilting you really thought we where going over ..... so no matter what the ship offered after that it was impossible to enjoy. The deck are in adequate to House 4500 people not enough Area for everyone . It is the biggest ship as if I’ve been on but felt like a small ship because whenever they were space it was either a cabin or a bar but not a real open area I just got off the breakaway in November which is 20 tons smaller but it actually felt bigger. We were on able to go to GSC due to winds It was very disappointing and the weather was crummy that you cannot blame on Norwegian but the fact that we sail through a hurricane wind and what terrorized on the first night of a trip there is not much more to say

Scariest
