I agree with garyg the shows were good. I thought the magician was abit poo...but really enjoyed The evolution of manipulation with Edge.
We ate mostly in the Garden Cafe for breakfast and lunch. The choice was immense to say the least. We ate in Cagney's and Tango's and Chin Chin's, which was the best meal of the whole cruise to me..if you like Asian food it was fab.
We didn't have any problems with the staff, all very attentive to us.
My teenagers went in and looked at their age group spot and backed out..just by talking to the other kids did they make some friends..but it was after prodding them to do so.
My youngest loved the Fyzz club and sang in there several times.
They didn't like the pools so much, the water was sea water with added chlorine.
If you are going to go to the Vatican and to see St. Peter's Basilica..make sure your knees and sholders are covered before going in. They won't let you if they aren't. Men in shorts were having to buy paper trousers if their shorts were to short, and woman with bare sholders were buying shawls from vendors outside.
All in all we loved our excursions we booked thru NCL and thought we got a great deal for our money. There were alot of ppl complaing about the Angels and Demons tour tho saying their guide didn't tell them anything about the connections to the Dan Brown book at all, and they didn't have time to see the big bang ending.
I wish it was me going again, post trip depression has settled in.......Have a wonderful time!!!
