10 Day Cruise from New Orleans May 8

Sail Date: May 08, 2016

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

Decent cruise, ten days at sea prior to drydocking.  Six ports.  Ship clean but ready for a sprucing up.  Dined in MDR as well as five nights at Bistro and Cagneys.  Food, ok for convention food, gets old quick.  Crew mostly friendly, cabin steward outstanding.  Very snippy future cruise representative, she gave a confusing speech about future bookings, and when visited in her office was rude and condescending.  She would drive business away, NCL needs to have better marketing representatives.

Tiny pool. Hopefully expanding during drydock. Star Bar, normally a late night bar, closed early each night on the ship. Ship's reconstruction started while we were still at sea, deck areas were blocked, pool was tied off the day before docking.
