A good time for all

Sail Date: August 01, 2007

Traveled As: Family w/older children

Room Type: Oceanview

For the most part evrything was ok. Nothing is perfect, everyone knows that. The soda program was expensive and also frustrating. Since the waiters do not get an automatic 15% tip added to the bill, if you ordered a soda and there were no other drinks ordered I waited forever for the soda and several times the waiter never returned with it and I had to reorder with someone else. When we docked in New York and waited to disembark all the toilets in the public restrooms stopped flushing. I have a wife and two adult daughters who eventually needed the restrooms and could not find one that was not disgusting. The odors and the full bowls were sickening for them but they had no choice but to use them. Very upsetting. Not a good ending to the first time cruisers.
This put a big damper on trip that otherwise for the most part was enjoyable.

Pros: the food in most of the resturants and the stateroom stewards

Cons: The soda program. Since the waiters did not get an automatic 15% tip you waited forever and sometimes never got the soda, I had to reorder it. Happened numerous times, very frustrating because you cannot order it yourself at a bar.

Recommends Norwegian Crown (RETIRED)? No.

Food and Dining
All the resturants were ok except the Yacht Club Buffet. That food was marginal at best, not a very good selection
Cabin / Stateroom
Service and Staff
Our stateroom steward Glenn was a pleasure, towel creatures everynight, prompt service with a smile, very helpfull.
Ship Quality
Read the above bathroom comment.
St. George's, Bermuda
Ok, not at the top of my list
Hamilton, Bermuda
The optional excursions, the shopping and the people are great.
Don't Miss: water tours and snorkling
