I have been on 2 cruises to the Bahamas with Royal Caribbean, and they were out of this world great. As for my recent first time cruise with NCL, it was such an inferior downgrade from Royal Caribbean. The food was awful, cold almost all the time. Tasteless, such little portions and most of all very Inferior cheap quality. Royal Caribbean's food was delicious and sooo gourmet. I think for NCL freestyle means = poor quality, cheap, non attentive. The bathrooms on the boat smelled of urine all the time, and there was constantly water all over the floor. This cruise was overall out of a 10 I would give it a 2. The food was my main issue because Cagney's Steakhouse which you have to pay extra for ($25) and plus ($10) for the lobster or any house special, wasn't even all that special. The waiter did not bring out 3 of my partys side dishes he forgot, and then the garlic potatoes tasted so bland and were cold. This was not worth the $80 we wound up paying. I have had a much better filet mignon. But the Main Dining rooms Food was not good at all, really dissatisfied. Ordered a German chocolate cake for dessert wound up getting a disgusting (what tasted like a bran cereal) with cheap coconut taste. Hahaha there was literally no chocolate in the whole cake. How can you mess up a piece of chocolate cake. Terrible service, they are not interested in serving you and worst of all after the cruise is done your fees are going to include a $12 a day per person service charge. Hahaha the service was not even there. Never again!!! with NCL


The shows were sooo bad. The comedian was on average like a 4 if that. Royal Caribbean's 10 x times Better. The variety show was an embarrassment, that we left. Ummmm....... they were literally spitting water on each other ( you can imagine) it was absolutely retarded.

The elevators smelled of vomit on the second day, bathrooms smelled of urine and were missing toilet paper in half of the stalls. Water was on the floor practically all over the place in all of the bathrooms I have been in same thing. The service is lacking tremendously.
