Great entertainment, service so-so

Sail Date: December 28, 2014

Reviewed: 2 years ago

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Suite

Entertainment including BlueMan Group, Second City was fantastic!  As others mentioned, the bathroom set-up in the room was not great, very little privacy and awkward.  No lotion in room, only shampoo/body wash in large containers.  Service overall was mediocre for dining and we only got into specialty restaurant once (all booked).  There were several times where we sat and sat with no assistance at a restaurant.  Our last cruise on Norwegian Dawn had many openings for specialty restaurants.  Each day, the monitors showed almost complete red for all restaurants, but if you went there, they weren't full!!  Cruise was very crowded (New Year's) and that got old, especially the buffet.  Excursions were great, especially Grand Cayman (dolphin, stingray).  Cozumel, Playa Mia.  Kids liked the waterslides, exursions, and entertainment (ages 7 and 10).  Getting on and off the ship was easy.  Ship was beautiful and clean.
