Awesome itinerary!! by dzills

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple
Our flight arrived in San Juan about 3 pm and we boarded the ship about 3:30, hungry and tired. All services and dining options were closed due to the mandatory drill at 4:30. The ship didn't leave port until 9 pm and passengers only had to be on board by 7 pm. We don't understand why the mandatory drill was done when all passengers weren't on board, and inconvenienced us as we were not able to dine after being in flight and airports since 4 in the morning.

Frustrating by dmpryce72

I won't sail NCL again. I thought I had paid more for a step up from RCL and CCL, but my experience with food and crowds ranked it with CCL. They just didn't give me a better product.

There were multiple family reunions some things were so crowded it was impossible to participate in, lines for the buffet was hectic, kids running through areas they shouldn't be running through. Unfriendly uncooperative staff. Paying everyday gratuities yet being charge gratuity every time I buy a drink or order room service on top of what you've already paid. Just not happy this time around. I expected more Norwegian.

I like the smaller ships for you don't get overwhelmed as with the bigger vessels. It's a more personal and relaxing atmosphere.

Staterooms were too small and cramped, but overall it was comfortable. Free room service for breakfast was a great option.
