Cagney's is supposed to be a step up for dining on this ship. That is why you pay extra to dine there. For my extra one hundred dollars and dressing up for the occasion, my wife and I were seated next to a group of people who feel that Freestyle means coming in wearing dirty shorts and t-shirts that smelled! Attention NCL! Seat your Freestylers on one side of Cagney's and those who dress up on the other side. Also, don't serve me the same cut of meat that I can get in the free dining area and then charge extra to dine in Cagney's! Your entertainment is an absolute joke. The Second City show sucked. Also, on the Carnival Dream, the bow of the ship was not restricted access. You limit access to wayyy too much of the ship. We were given mail the entire week that had someone else's name on it. The cabin was dirty on check-in. There was mail left in the room that was directed to the staff and we got to read their complaint card because it was not picked up before we got in the room.
Lousy cruise - start to finish. The next time I want the same experience, I will just sit in my local mall for a week straight at Christmas time and let myself get trampled.

Simply stay away from NCL all together. The best ones to go for are Princess and Celebrity.
