If this had been my first cruise, there wouldn't have been a second. Waste of good money. Will never take NCL again because of experience.

The food was awful. I went to the buffet the first day and never went back. Food there was cold and could not identify 95% of it. The main dining room was not as good as most of the diners I've been to. Menu options unappealing. I ordered the grilled ham and cheese for lunch one day and the sandwich was cold and cheese unmelted.(Swiss cheese). Ihad the has browns for breakfast at 3 different places. All its was as rock piece of crust. We ate at 2 Specialty Restaurants, Mamas Italian and a Staek House. The Steak House was bad and Mamas was worse. Had the chicken parm at Mamas. The chicken was ok, but pasta was tasteless and the sauce was burnt. I stopped for a snack on night at the cafe. I ordered wonton soup and a piece of cake. The soup was hot water with 2 small pieces of scallion and a wonton I spit out after tasting. I also coudn't the cake.

Our stateroom was poorly designed. You couldn't walked without stubbing a toe or banking another body part. A friend of ours was using the toilet and nocked the paper out of its holder with her knee. She bent over to picke it up and hit her head. I made the mistake og going into the toilet area with my pants on. After using the toilet , I tried pull my pants back up and didn't have room. I had to shuffle out of area with my pants around my ankles.

Bingo, Art Auctions, and Kid Games. Uhggggg.

Main Show Room was was good 2 nights.(Circue De Soleil). Terrible the rest. Lounge entertainment not very good. Staff excellent thruout the ship.
