Review summary

NCL was my favourite cruise line as it was "freestyle". Unfortunately this new booking system that they have introduced for shows is disappointing as is the having to book restaurants. More seasoned cruisers obviously knew what to do. I doubt I will sail with NCL again unfortunately.

Food and Dining

We had a dining package which I assumed meant I could have a speciality restaurant every night however I was only afforded three, this was not made clear when I booked package. Worse was trying to make a reservation. On the other days I ate in Taste. I cannot recommend this restaurant and the staff in it highly enough, I have cruised over 20 times and this was the ultimate in service, food and friendliness.

Stage shows had to be booked!!! Any other cruise I had been on you were free to go to shows every night. This was very disappointing. Jersey Boys was great, Six was dreadful.
