This was our 3rd cruise on NCL.  The staff wasn't as friendly as our other NCL cruises and the ship was older.  The entertainment and food was very good.  We had a couple of issues with the safe in our cabin and we had no water for our shower and sink the last day, but we still had a good cruise and NCL is still our favorite cruise line and will cruise with them again.  The cruise staff literally rolls out the red carpet when you return to ship from being in port

Ship Tip

There is no midnight or chocolate buffets on this ship. The chocolate extravaganza is a theme of chocolate desserts at the restaurants
