as far as the actual trip was concerned it was wonderful. we spent quality time together and my teenage boys had the best European experience. the ports of call were amazing and we did everything on our bucket list. however the ship itself was a little bit of a disappointment. we didn't find it to be very flowing and/or accommodating. the staterooms were way to small and not set up in the most comfortable way. the reservations for shows were a total inconvenience. the food was not up to par compared to other cruise lines we have traveled with. all in all,the time spent with our loved ones outweighed the inconvenience of the actual ship but unfortunately when when we cruise again I think I will opt for another cruise line instead of NCL.

Ship Tip

the itinerary was great. the ship itself... not so much. the good thing was that we were on vacation and that in itself was enjoyable.
