Review summary

Our favorite part was the excursions in Bermuda.

The ship was nice but too big for our taste. Too many people everywhere. 

We had to stand in line for 2 hours at embarkation, the ship was late coming in causing much congestion in the terminal.

We were also disappointed in the choices for complimentary entertainment.

The Second City Comedy was great, but the only other choice being Rock of Ages was very risque and not entertaining. What happened to just plain entertainment? 

I will always recommend NCL, but cruising just isn't what it used to be.

Balcony was smaller than we've had on smaller ships. The carpet appeared worn . Our room was rarely attended to. Our water glasses were never changed out, dirty ice tongs looked like someone used then in chocolate, and it was not us. Just disappointed..
