Shows grand and well done, food in Garden Cafe. Manhattan, La Cucina,  and O'Sheehans excellent.  Served well and presentation most excellent. Our cabin steward was superior, a big change from 2015 experience. Pianist Darryl wrote some of his own music, taught us to listen to the instrument in a different way.  Most enjoyable.

The only bad thing was parents who let their children run wild, without concern for some of the older adults on board.  NOT NCL's fault, they have great programs for children, some parents just do not understand they need to help children understand screaming and pushing is not acceptable.

Not on a ship, nor in port.

Be aware it is very noisy in the Atrium, So if it is peace and quiet you want, go into the lovely quiet Library! Lots going on in the Atrium, this trip had lots and lots of loud parents and children. There are plenty of quiet places and wonderful people on board, enjoy the trip.
