We arrived at noon and had lunch-our rooms were not ready until 2pm our luggage arrived at 4pm. Dinner was casual-we ate at the Market Cafe.the Dining room menu didn't appeal to us so we did buffet. The room was always clean. The entertainment was a mess. Unorganized and 5 comics, plus second city inprov -give me a break. The singer headliner was horrible. The lounge entertainment had it all over the headliners. One big show with the dancers and singers.
The cruise crew worked hard to keep us busy but not enough activities to make the sea days go by. The one man band-Tino was great fun and we visited him nightly. The Melodic Trio was just that and very entertaining. The other variety band was terrible. The piano player was great too. All of this entertainment was head and shoulders abovae the main shows. Halloween party was very unorganized. karaoke which is a staple on most ships was 3 times only . with many people not getting to sing. Cruise director and his staff were great. Luz,Samantha, and Asly were wonderful. A huge asset to the ship. This was our 12th cruise and by far the most disappointing. The ship was hard to navigate. This was our 12th cruise--if it had been our first--it might have been our last. The trivia was so hard and no specialties ie-sports,music,movies, etc.

Food was the same stuff everyday. Pork 5 times and chicken everyday. Other choices were not appealing. This was our second NCL and the 1st we were disappointed in the food and this was the same--we only ate twice in the main dining room. The choices were awful and we checked every day for a better choice and never got it. we ate in 2 specialty spots and the Italian and Mexican were very good. Also the 24 hour venue was good and we ate there twice. There was alot of India type curry foods with not many on the ship. The desserts were terrible and tasteless. On most ships dessert is a highlight not so here. Pizza was cardboard with sauce. The fruit was good and only choice of iced tea and water for cold drinks at lunch.

ok--nothing fancy. The beds were hard and for the money I would have liked more attention.

The onboard activities were very limited. Hardly anything to do. Trivia, as I already said ,was very hard and no specialty games. No belly-flop or hairy legs contests. No horse races, in the casino no one won!!!!! Bingo was awful too. The prices were crazy.

You can get cheaper ones from the locals. We had good luck with that.

I have explained all of it at the top I don't need to say anymore.
