First positive: -Departure from home town -Caribbean ports, lovely itinerary ( one port was canceled) - excellent crew attitude, polite and friendly Now the bad: -4.5 hours! to embark- absurd, standing in line for 4 hours with no option to sit - average food, over cooked, under seasoned, but we never went hungry. Just was average. - very boring unless all you want is read. Nightly entertainment was good. -Port was canceled due to storm prediction 3!!! days in advance. As the result, we arrived to nyc 4 hours earlier than scheduled. Out St Thomas Port was 5 hours! Thanks captain for stealing part of my vacation. - our room attendant was keeping linen on the floor under bed(see pic). Guest services resolved problem right away. -Cabin (balcony) was the tiniest I’ve ever seen. When beds were made, you had to climb over the beds, no room on the floor. Not good for 3 people.

First and last time on Norwegian
