Sorry your first cruise was not all you wanted it to be. If your not scared off from cruising I'd suggest you try a different cruise line. Talk to a good travel agent and explain what your looking for so that they can match you with the cruise line that would be a good fir for you. Everybody that cruises has a favorite cruise line, the favorite can change as you get older and your taste change. You can also always ask questions or ask for advice here on the form.

I do agree with you about the food and service on NCL ships .

I cannot believe that you say the food was terrible. We were on the Jade earlier this year and everything, including the food was superb. Which areas I wonder in the restaurants was terrible, the MDR's, the buffet, the Chinese? What service was non existent? I suspect however, as this is your first review, it will be the last we hear from you

How unfortunate that this cruise was not what you expected. It doesn't sound like anything pleased you about the ship. Luckily you did enjoy two of your ports of call. Freestyle is not about bad food, poor service or a lack of organization.

I hope that future cruises are a better fit for you. There are other cruise lines to choose from so I'm sure that you will find one to your liking.

It is unfortunate that your first cruise experience was not a better one. The issue with NCL, CCL, and RCL (to some extent) is that these are entry-level cruise lines that balance a fine line of keeping costs down to make cruising affordable to the masses.

Don't give up on cruising but DO try another line.
