May 2016 - Norwegian Breakaway to Bermuda
I am a veteran of many cruises. I am a diamond level on Cunard, a platinum level on Princess and a gold level on NCL. Upon arriving in my stateroom, 11110, I unhappily discovered a $7.95 charge for room service. Venturing onto the 15th deck for something to eat, the "easy" flow of alcoholic beverages made for loud, raucous behavior. Added to that, the number of irresponsible parents who allowed their children to run around and yell in public places made dining a less pleasurable experience! Finally, being unable to reward staff members at MY discretion - being automatically charged $13.50 per day per person and being told that I would need to write to "corporate headquarters" for an adjustment was the final "blow."
