I chose this cruise because of the ports of call.... I have sailed on several different cruise line and I must admit that for the money I spent on 2 adults and 2 kids ( close to $6000.00 ) was not really worth it A lot of the staff members are very rude, within 1 hour of boarding 1 female bartender on the 15 deck poolside had a least 8 complaints against her, not a good way to start the cruise.... The rooms were rated at a 7 on a scale of 1-10 and were kept very clean by our steward, he was polite to my family and always addressed me as Mr. Ron and yes I tipped him daily... I think the room service for food is a ripoff And the cafe late night is a joke, dont go their unless u are absolutely dying of hunger.... I also think that the ship is very very tight for its size The pool is standing room only unless ur at a port of call then you can actually swim.. The wait staff is the best... If u buy a drink package buyer be ware, The beverages in ur room are not part of that at all..... And their is an $8.00 convenience charge for room service (BY THE WAY CARNIVAL HAS FREE ROOM SERVICE )... Overall I give NCL a 4 out of 10....... Next cruise will definitely be on another cruise line....

Not all it's cracked up to be
