Thats just one more way Norwegian Sun takes you to the cleaners...so to speak. We had a terrible cruise experience with the Sun. It's a good boat...but NOT great by any means. The shows are fair at best; don't even think about getting lunch at 11:30...burgers only; freestyle cruising means you never get the same waiter twice...no one to get to know you; Costa Maya is a waste as is Santo Tomas. Asked for a banana on the last morning of the cruise..was told they were out!! How does a cruise ship run out of anything?? Pretty boat but definitely not in the same class as Carnival!
Bananas are fresh fruit, that will spoil and rotten over time. I'm not surprised that any cruise line may run out of bananas late in a cruise. On your cruise, if more passengwrs than normal eat bananas early, they'll will run out. Any fruit or fresh vegetable can come up short if more than the average eat them.
NCL doesn't order 150% of the average on anything. First, their isn't enough room aboard to over stock. Second, if they did over stock, some of it will go bad. Third, throwing food that goes bad away means less profits for the cruise line, and eventually higher fares later.
Have you ever ran short of something at home, like bread, milk or beer before your normal time for grocery shopping each week? You have the advantage of being able to run down to the nearest convience or grocery store,, and restocking what your family has over consummed that week. Cruise ships don't have that option.
I don't believe they run out of bananas on every cruise. I'm sorry they did on yours.
