This was our first trip on a Norwegian cruise. I'm still not sure how I feel about the freestyle dining. I found that the 3 dining rooms were too fancy in their food choices for us and the other places you had to pay to eat there. I also didn't like the fact that in the dining rooms you have to pay for steak and lobster when on many other cruises it's included in the price of the trip. We mostly at between the buffet and O'Sheenan's pub. The food that we did eat was delicious. There were enough onboard activities to keep our teenagers busy. Our balcony room was spacious. Some of the other passengers on board were rude at times. We were trying to take formal pictures on the staircase one night when people kept going up and down the stairs interfering with the photographers job. They would not wait until the photographer finished the picture and would barge through the scene. We felt that the ship should have closed off that portion of the staircase for the brief time they were taking pictures to avoid this happening.

There are plenty of free activities to keep the kids occupied on board but at the same time there are activities that you have to pay for, like bowling and video arcade. I really loved the photo album we purchased from the trip. We paid $149 and were able to put 35 pictures in our book!
