I wonder how this will go over with passengers?

It seems as though NCL management is trying all kinds of things to raise the bottom line. First charging for room service, then trying to say you can not take food out of the buffet or any other venue. That one backfired. Now they are changing specialty restaurants to a la carte. I keep hearing that service is not what it used to be on NCL. I will see in two weeks!

I have the feeling if I go on NCL after I get on the ship I will be held upside down and shaken so all the NICKLES and DIMES fall out of my pockets. They are increasing the tipping but the service levels are dropping!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
