Review Summary

This was my first time on Norwegian. We were impressed with the the ship. It was very easy to get around. We liked the freestyle dining. Not enough deck chairs. Nice shows in the evening. Comfortable staterooms. Excellent service in the dining room. Pictures were pricey. They printed up one, then made a calendar of the same picture and made you take both for double the price, didn't like that.. Didn't need the calendar! Needed more activities on sea days..kind of quiet, not much going on.. Overall a good cruise but I prefer the other lines and would not sail Norwegian again.
