boring, rough seas, went to Nassau for 12 hours instead of Bermuda.

Sail Date: October 17, 2014

Room Type: Suite

Ship had very litte charm.   We ate in specialty resturants each night.  Menus never change.    Food good but not exciting.    Change in itinery due to weather....not the cruise line fault.   Mini-suite was average. cabin service was average.  Room service food terrible.     Main dining room, used for bkfst only, OK  Service slow at times.   Orders for breakfeast bungled.   Missing iotems ordered etc.  Cancelled our next NCL cruise from  Tampa in May 2015.  Will try another cruise line.    Opinion......NCL's newer ships are a class act.  The Breakaway was outstanding.   Older ships are not maintained that well (rust on the balcony) etc.  Wife fell on gthe pool deck,er 15 minutes to get her up.  A fellow passenger actually raised her up to a wheel chair.  Treatment in the ships medical facility was good and follow up was given.  No charge to us as it was deemed a shipboard accident.
