AVOID AT ALL COSTS. Worst cruise ever. Food was inedible and uninspired (mashed potatoes, green beans, etc) , entertainment very poor (although Comedian Landry was to be fair OK) and ship old and very dated with horrible damp mildew smell throughout our floor and in our room. But worst is that we had in our room and came back with bedbugs. I have been an NCL cruiser since 1999 but profoundly disappointed in this ship and it has soured me on the idea of sailing with NCL in the future despite being a latitudes member. They should have scuttled this ship last year rather than refurbishing it, a refurbishment which still leaves the ship very unattractive with dark common areas, and rooms were certainly not refurbished. Its hard to believe NCL owns both this disaster and Breakaway on which I have had a good experience. But after this cruise I may never sail NCL again, despite having a large amount of cash credit with them after an itinerary change beyond their control (cuba was cancelled due to change in foreign policy and ship diverted to bahamas)

Horrible cruise, and BEDBUGS!
