Most every aspect of this NCL cruise was mediocre, incuding food quality, entertainment, and service.  The most unpleasant aspect of the cruise was the dependably-long lines for the main dining hall at the evening meal.  Because of the long lines, beepers were routinely handed out with an up to 40 minute wait.  It appeared that NCL was wanting to encourage patrons to pay for one of many specialty restaurants.  We did back-to-back cruises with Carnival and, unfortunately, found that NCL paled in comparison.
