Food etc. all good, including all staff.

Everything I wanted to do apart from free entertainment cost a bloody fortune. $7 for a beer Plus 18% "gratuity"

All excursions could be found less than half NCL prices on the internet.by private  / local operators.

Specialty packages not woth the cost as meals were good in the regular restaurants and buffets.

I left with a nasty taste in my mouth of Rip Off.

Shortcomings were numerous.

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Our cabin was spacious and comfortable and well lit.

For four of the seven days the cabin smelled of sewage or fish. The stink hit you in the face as soon as you opened the door. Several excuses were offered, but no solution.

The balcony door required great force to open or close. A crew member tried it and the door fell off its track and required carpenters to repair it.

The buttons on the phone for calling various services were inoperable.

Being at the stern of the ship, we were awakened very early each morning by loud rumbling and vibration as the ship docked.

The buffet was skimpy. The breakfast choices were the same every day.

There was a desk, but no chair or stool.

There was no full length mirror.

The location that permitted pipe smoking was too windy to enjoy a smoke. Holland America and Royal Caribbean are much more accommodating.

I've had better Norwegian cruises.

The cruise itself was the highlight of our trip.  However, ports of call not very appealing because there was not really anything interesting to see or do in some of them (e.g. Punta Arenas).

South America cruise locations  were good, nightly shows good, food & service good too, Argentina is much nicer then Brazil , generally the cruise excursions are too expensive & not worth the value , NCL charge extra now for room service & lobster & upgraded meals

Please see individual comments in various categories that follow.

I am sorry I took this cruise.  Other than the ports in Chile it was hard to see why we stopped.

Food service was repetitious.  Even in the main dining room there were surcharges for steak (at least $20 plus gratuity) and two other items. 

It was not possible to determine what was being served without going to the different venues. 

Drinks were very expensive.

We went on this cruise because we had cruised with Norwegian on past 2 occasions. This time food choice for 2 of our shipmate, who were vegetarians was just Horrible. One vegetarian choice was the same for all 17 days ( Vegetarian Lasagne roll) in Seven Seas Restaurant. The person responsible for this must eat this for all 17 days. Will try other cruise line next time in April 2017.  Shows were very good.

I was in cabin 8076 which is a balcony at the back.  Seems like all the cabins are a little small, but ok. I think because it was a 17 day cruise from San Diego to Valparaiso, Chile, they saved food by serving the inexpensive, but nutritious, food a lot.  They have lobster but you have to pay to get it.  Half of the shows were fair, but the production shows were very good.  The average age was about 67 but I heard the Sun's cruise to Cabo before was a party cruise.  As as transition cruise, the ports and excursions I heard were poor.

Moderno was a cool restaurant to visit, unique way of serving or offering "all the menu" as they would bring pieces to your table and you could say yes or decline the meat etc. I've never done that anywhere before, and thought it was a nice way of sampling all the things on the menu!

Read the reviews and pay attention to what they say especially on cruise critic and research the cruise line you are going to go on and before booking it read the current reviews

We had our breakfast each morning in the restaurant on the bar side. It was much quieter and so much more pleasant and always seats were available. It was like a hidden gem!
