We enjoyed the cruise because of the nice stateroom and friendly staff, but in some other parts we were a bit disappointed. Somehow you had the feeling that they were trying to sell you stuff constantly! We bought the soft drink package and a wine package, the latter was not at all of the standard we have experienced on RCCL. And totally crazy was the fact that you had to choose the wines randomly at the time of purchase, not knowing what you were going to eat! The fitness centre was well equipped and not too crowded. Finding a Deck chair anywhere close to the pool was impossible since people put towels on the chairs early in the morning and then showed up after lunch. We ended up a couple of floors up, which was ok, but a bit far from the pool bar. Overall I dont think we will cruise NCL again, RCCL is a better choice in our opinion.

The food was below average in the main restaurants, but Ok in the restaurants that you paid extra for. When paying a cover charge of 25$ it is annoying not to be able to choose anything from the menu, but having to pay extra again for some choices.

We had a very nice stateroom with a lovely balcony that we enjoyed immensely!

The shows were average, some very much alike, boring. The behind the scenes tour was ridicilously overpriced.
