NEVER AGAIN!!!

I wrote a long review earlier but pressed the send button and it said I had timed out............ So I am coming back again but will nto again waste too much time on this site......

Basically understand that NCL does not want you to relax nor do they want to provide a complete experience like other cruise lines do (I have benn on many week or two week cruises in the last ten years and I can compare fairly)........ without paying for everything you want to do, and high prices........

See a show, $20 each for crappy seats and a fixed menu, boling advertised at sea, $5 per game per person......... meals, the same food daily and nothing expensive....... unless you want to go to the ten specialty restaurants........ and pay $5 for a bowl of soup for starters!

Want bottled water, tiny bottle $2,50, larger bottle, over $5............ a tiny glass of soda, $2.50.............

They don;t have enough seating for their shows so you must book in advance all your activities............. and honestly we walked out of all of them as they were so boring............. Blue Man group takes tens minute sto throw marshmallows into each others mouths............ it gets redundant after awhile...

Roayl Carribean the total opposite,,,,,,,,,,, no extra charges for 90% of what you want to do.............. AIDA, the German cruis line, you would be amazed at all the lobster, free Heinekin and carafes of wine at your table each meal............. filtered water and gas water at spigots in the hallways! But not on NCL.... want even room service more than cereal and you will pay........... even juice agter 10 AM, cost us almost $3 each time!

Forget it............... other cruise lines you relax... at NCL you are soaked and soaked and come home broke.......

Pros: The cabin was nice and had a bathtub

Cons: NCL charged extra for almost everything.............. no one left without paying at least $600 more and some around $5,000!

Recommends Norwegian Epic? No.

Service and Staff
much less friendly than others.......... here they actually force you to pay $12 per person for service where on other cruise lines, if you got poor service, you can reflect it in the tip............ not NCL..... PAY PAY PAY and our room was often made up after 4PM.... but the help knew they got their full tip so why try hard?
Entertainment
Ship Quality
Cabin / Stateroom
you will get what you pay for here
Food and Dining
Cozumel, Mexico
Coxen Hole, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras
Open sewers........... very poor people begging you for money ONE DOLLAR PLEASE say all the little kids
Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico
A hot strip of land on the beach surrounded by old dead trees...........
