We chose this particular cruise because it fit with the time and the itinery that we wanted. We had the 3 night speciality dinner package and the unlimited drink package and I can honestly say without them this trip would have been an epic failure. The room steward was delightful and earned every dollar of his tip. The bartenders were overwhelmed by the shear number of guest on board that they had to serve that it was impossible for them to even ask your name much less carry on with pleasantries. The adult pool area could not support the overwhelming number of guests on board during sea days. The atrium was entirely too small for events to be held there as well. The food the the dining rooms was okay but I would not have been happy with it the entire week. The servers were are very courteous and attentive. Book your entertainment and dinner reservations PRIOR TO SAILING, otherwise after you set sail you will be in a long line waiting to make reservations only to be told that they are sold out. The ship had a lot to offer, however, most of the restaurants and entertainment was at an additional cost. We paid almost $3,000 for our stateroom for the week and spent $1,000 in the casino and about $50.00 in the shop for various items. I think that the entertainment should have been included. Disembarkation took entirely too long they only had 1 person checking pass ports as each person left the ship. I don't think that we will be back on NCL, until things improve.

Large ship with no comfortable quiet places

Cabin Review

Balcony Stateroom

Clean however, the bed and pillows were not comfortable.
