lovely stateroom.  Dinning was awful.  We ate in the Manhattan, taste, and savour restaurants.  Food was the poorest quality we have experienced in 48 cruises.  The staff were so poorly trained, we received our wine at the end of the meal, requested coffee four times at dinner.  Finally received one cup of coffee with no offer for a refill.  Lovely people but not trained for the job.  It is very obvious Norwegian wants to make their money on booze as we have been on many ships and never experienced so many bars.  In turn, all these bars eats up valuable areas for other functions ... Such as reading, visiting with others, etc.  Seriously, one pool for adults and one for children.  With 4,000 plus passengers, try getting in the pool, that is if you dare to dodge the drunks with their glass beer bottles in the pool.  The pool in my backyard is bigger than the pool on this ship.
