Ship seems to be catering to the 20 something crowd so entertainment was not appealing to most that were not in that age group. The one show we did get to see - 70's review was great and was followed by a 70's party that really rocked the place. People of all ages were enjoying themselves and it was great. Cruise staff is more like Chippendale dancers than activity leaders. No poolside activities (the smallest pool I have ever seen on a cruise ship for 2700 people), and few other organized activities. Drinks were sold in specialty glasses unless you requested to not have the glass which took $2 off the charge. Stateroom was smaller than those I have experienced on other cruise lines.
Crew was much less engaging than when I was on the ship in 2003. You rarely saw the officers and if you did they were not talking with any of the passengers but in small groups with each other. On other cruises, once anyone knew your name they remembered it and called you by name throughout. Only a few times did anyone even refer to me by name even though our charge card that you give had our name on it.
I was very disappointed in this cruise and would not recommend it to anyone and will not likely go on this ship or even another NCL cruise again.
Pros: My travel companions
Cons: Getting nickeled and dimed to death
