Review summary

Took my son to Europe for two weeks as his graduation present. The cruise was half of the trip so we could get to more places. We are also used to cruises so it was the way to go. Cover more ground in a short period of time. Norwegian was fine. I am undecided if I will cruise with them again however. Food was just so-so.

The chefs there were outstanding! Food was also great. The chefs had great personalities and had us rolling with laughter in our chairs! These chefs are better than the ones I have seen on the mainland. Kudos to them. Made for a very enjoyable night and experience.

Ice Bar

5 out of 5

Took my son into his first bar experience into the Ice Bar. Definitely unique and VERY cold. They do give you things to wear but most people only stayed for a 1/2 hour. Wouldn't skip doing this if you are on-board, but it is one time thing for us.
