Review summary

Overall good trip, I wish the food was better and the enterainment was better. I have travelled with three different cruiselines and the thing that bothered me was the cruise was trying to sell me something at every corner. It was starting to get annoying, I was there to relax. I will mostly not come back to Norweigan.

The embarkation was pretty smooth, we ended up trying to get there right when the terminal opened and it took a bit long. It was kind of expected but wanted to make sure we get on to the ship.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
We thought the food was okay overall. There wasn't any food we thought were terrible so that's good. We had a few items that were amazing but it didn't come often. We ate all the restaurants that did not have an extra charge so the ones that were included.

Onboard Activities

3 out of 5
We tried to participate in as many activities that we could. Overall the activities were okay, some got cancelled because there were low participation. The fun ones were 55 seconds to win it and the couple game.

Entertainment was okay, there were some stand out performance such as Hank Magic Show and NiKa. Those were just amazing, especially NiKa but there were some music acts that were good but I would like other forms of entertainment. There is music playing all over the ship so add some more shows and involve the audience.

Children's Programs

I didn't have kids.

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
The room steward was amazing, he did his best to make sure that we were taken care of. We were upset with the front customer service staff they didn't take ownership when something went wrong and tried to blame another party.
