Not as good as before

Still like the free style cruises. The Epic was OK but the food standard went down, no more flowers in the dining room where it is now fine if not recommented to come and eat in shorts and flipflops. A big let down for the guests who still see like a little glamour. The tending in the Caymans was a mess due to heavy swells. All in all we will still sail on Norvegian but hope the company will not cut any more corners.

Ship Quality
Start to show wear and tear
Food and Dining
Not as good as before. Quality of food went down. No dress code respected in main dining roomhad to ask for toilet paper
Cabin / Stateroom
Had to ask for toilet paper....
Service and Staff
Free style cruises don't give you a lot of opportunities to bond with the staff
Legends were wonderful
Ocho Rios, Jamaica
River rafting was wonderful
George Town, Grand Cayman
The stingray trip was great, the tending awful.
Cozumel, Mexico
The sailing if fine but the harbour is not very pretty.


Being such a big ship be careful about excursions involving tending. A lot of people come back at the same time and the lines can get very long to get back on board.
