We took a 7 day trip out of BCN, as soon as we boarded we noted that staff standards were sketchy. As the cruise progressed we understood that clients embarked and de-barked at every port, therefore there was none of that super cohesion that you get from all being together from a defined length of time.
The taste and manhattan room dining complimentary were excellent, the chinese was a joke. The buffet was good and varied, the pools lovely, the entertainment patchy due to the roll on roll off nature of the clients - no goodbye show, no captains announcements (apart from 1). Overall was an excellent cruise but no comparison to the party vibe of sailing the Getaway out of Miami!

On this we did not debark at Citavecchia and Marseille. In the other places, you dont need an excursion, save your money. Norwegian tell you how to do it under your steam on the eve of each departure.
