The ship was very clean all the time.  The quality of the food was top notch but atlas there was no Lobster Night or Escargo.  The food was on the plain side although cooked correctly.  Some of the descriptions on the menu were inaccurate but they would bring you a subsitute. In the dining room there were not enough wine stewarts, most cruise they are bugging you to buy at the bar, well most people had gotten the free ultimate drink package so maybe it was purposeful not to ask what I wanted from the bar , I had to ask for the wine menu and the stewart every night. There was not many people asking to get you drinks anywhere else either. They did have a whole pig on the buffet one night.  The hamburgers on the deck were great!  My husband was disappointed that they put the soft icecream out of order a lot, I think they didn't feel like cleaning it, because it was just "off".  We were in a balcony and did not receive a bathrobe, thought Norweign didn't do that until a guest told us, we had to ask the stewart.  Although the stewart did anything we asked and made wonderful towel animals,  I think he didn't notice things that were missing or amiss, for instance the door on the balcony opened between us and the next cabin and he didn't notice it.  Just little stuff like that.

We booked excursions through Shoeexcrusioners and they were all great. 

We had fun and although you had to hunt down drinks when you got up to the bartender they were tentitive, I only wanted no carb drinks so they helped me make it happen by squeezing a lot of limes for me. One more thing I wish they had was a second pool for adults only, but this ship is old and it was very reasonably priced.  We had fun!

foxscullyus's Tips

Oasis of the Seas Oasis of the Seas - There is very little activities and for a ship of 6000 you would think they would do the same ones a few times so more people could attend. I liked the dancing on the pool deck. There is no late night buffets but a lobster tail night!
Grand Turk Island - We rented a gulf cart was fun except our cart almost broke down. People will stop and help you very friendly island.
Amber Cove (Puerto Plata), Dominican Republic - Don't buy at the inside stores too expense there was some great vendors by the "fort" but our tour guide didn't give us time there to look or shop but 3 min so I got off bus and got a great deal on a Ladamore nexlace.
Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico - Found some nice silver and deals, tip: do not take the price they give you one was over $200 more than we ended up paying.
Cozumel, Mexico - You can take a ferry to the mainland, didn't know that.
Norwegian Star Norwegian Star - It was a bit rolly being in the front. The fish on the carpet in the hall ways swim toward the bow of the ship. LOL.
Carnival Liberty Carnival Liberty - The summer cruises are crowded and too windy out. I would recommend December.
