Review summary

We will never cruise with Norwegian again. We cruised as a family with our 20, 16, and 14 year old. Not much for them to do especially with water activities. All of the hot tubs were adult only. Of the 2 pools, 1 was adult only and the other was basically a kiddie pool. We paid for 2 cabins and Norwegian didn’t even make an attempt at locating them near each other. Each was on the extreme opposite ends of the ship and on different floors. So not family friendly. When I kindly mentioned it the didn’t seem to care and then they blamed the travel agent. Our precious cruise which was on Royal Caribbean was exactly the opposite as they were super family friendly and placed our rooms next to each other. Anyhow, if looking for a more family friendly cruise line with kind and accommodating staff, I would look to Royal Caribbean and not Norwegian.
