great ports and enjoyed each city. The cruise was full of Spanish people which made it very loud and chaotic at the open buffet. We thought NCL catered to North America, but these were in the minority which made the cruise somehow noisy and unorganized. People would cut in front of you with no respect to others. People were going in the hot tubs with babies and in their under wears, some others were in their clothes. The swimming pools weren't enough for the sheer number of kids, and the water color changed, not sure if it's something to do with the chlorine or the people swimming. Overall, I wouldn't except that experience on Norwegian, but rather on carnival cruises.

Set up was odd as we were used to the getaway room setup. There wee definite wear and tear in the room. Overall, it was a decent room.

Ship Tip

make sure the people are adhering to the swimming rules or hot tub usage. It makes the experience for other people more enjoyable.
