Very disappointing. Dining room and cabin service good. Food in main dining room a B- at best. Felt dollared and dimed by constant exhortations to shop everytime I walked about the ship. Way too many overpriced "cover charge" restaurants where the food was no better than main dining room. Games, in my opinion, deceptive to get children to run up a big bill when they thought they were winning "free" games. NCL also seems to run the decptive practice of requiring mandatory "tips" from passengers (in addition to the full fare paid). These "tips" are nothing more than a ploy to get passengers to pay extra in order to subsidize staff wages.

It is highly doubtful that we will ever use NCL again



Designed to extract more money from passengers.

Excursions were over priced. Many could be duplicated at no cost by simply leaving the ship and walking about.

Enough has been said - barely acceptable.
