NCL...Not likely again!

Sail Date: June 12, 2011

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Inside

NCL has freestyle cruising down nicely, but constant up selling and pushing very expensive drinks, spa services, tous, etc, got old very fast. I am not the only one that noticed, everyone was unhappy with this aggressive policy. On board, I spent nearly 3x more $$$, than I did on similar Med cruise a year ago.

Pros: Nice ship, clean, decent service

Cons: Constant sales pitch on everything extra, drinks, food, excursions, services. Really a turn-off. Food, just average.

Recommends Norwegian Epic? Yes!

Blue man group was terrific, also live bands great too!
Service and Staff
All business...friendly, but aggressively trying to sell...drinks, tours, retail items, as is on commission basis.
Cabin / Stateroom
Suites for 1 person small, cut nice.
Food and Dining
Average food , limited offerings, same food every day, little variety on buffet included in booking fare.
Ship Quality
Nice ship!
