Juices in machines are not 100% pure juice. Several times I heard senior staff berating junior members in public within dining facilities. This needs to be done behind closed doors.

Tipping is expected but yet gratuity is added daily.

Pools are entirely too small. Spa services are terribly overpriced. ATM machines didn't work at all. Fees for internet usage is too high based on data use.

Service and Staff

All in all the staff was excellent. Didn't expect to see senior staff berate service staff in Garden Cafe in front of customers. This should be done behind closed doors. Witnessed on numerous occaisions.

Cabin / Stateroom

Cabin steward was very helpful. Had a sewage scent problem on day 4 within our cabin, crew brought a filter machine to get rid of scent, it worked. Several other guest also noticed the scent.

Ship Tip

Shore excursions need to be priced reasonably. Booking seperately is way cheaper than through Norwegian. You're losing money.

Far from Rome, but very easy boarding and offloading.

Train service is not very tourist friendly. Very far from either Piza or Florence.
