i have sailed on norwegian 4 times, the most recent the epic 2 yrs ago, and have been on 9 cruises total. We  took this cruise 17 yrs ago for our anniversary  and decided to do it again for same reason. The ship was adequate, the night life better than the epic,  a new super giant ship we took out of rome to spain,different clientelle of passengers for sure.  The dawn was fun for many people. we had some issues with people waking us up daily in the hallways at 6;45 am when we were on vacation. we raised a complaint with customer service who advised to call security daily , not very realistic.. the gave us a bottle of wine for our trouble.  the all nigh dining room  Blue Lagoon, was slow and messed up our order 2x, the venetian is the main dining room and messed up my order 2x,  overcooked some food,  was ok for most part, the food in general was adequate, the servic ok, the drink gratuities are horrible very expensive and comical. I do not tip 18 % when someone hands me a beer at a bar. , never mind large drink tabs,  tipping should be per the service and individual on drinks.,overall the cruise was ok,
