wow, what a horrible experience, and that's saying something considering you're in a beautiful part of the world. the FREE STYLE word is only a word, the restaurants all close early, they make you buy things from their stores, even the stores at the ports are all the same as the ones on board and are owned by NCL. food was ok, nothing great and nothing terrible. staff all seem miserable and overworked. even some of the officers i talked to said they hate this cruise line and they hate this ship even more.

filled me up.

FOUND RAT POOP ON THE TOWELS!!!! i am from nyc, i know rat poop when i see it. and it doesn't actually bother me too much as i 'm a msician and used to living in unhealthy conditions.

shows were good.

just go where all of the other tourists don't go and you'll be fine.

room service took forever, food not available all the time - no orange juice after 11 am?! even the big ship felt really small after a day or two. i wanted to check out the crew areas since i like seeing what goes on behind the scenes, but was told by everyone there was no way i could go into a crew area. what is NCL trying to hide? Geez. Come to think of it, i don't think i ever saw a crew member who wasn't working. where do they eat? where do they walk around? maybe i am too socially conscious, but i care about where my money goes, and my money WILL NEVER EVER GO TO NCL AGAIN.
