Review summary

Favorite part was the specialty restaurants. Food republic was superior. The rest of the trip was mediocre. We had high expectations from our last Norwegian cruise. Sadly, all the entertainment and the vibe were sold out despite being 5 of 21 to board and going directly to sign up for them. Too many people to accommodate the shows,hot tubs, lounge areas. Go for a smaller ship. The service is better and the entertainment from the piano bars are better. It was a serious disappointment despite being a beautiful ship. By the way, do not use the infirmary unless you have an extra couple grand lying around-moral: get the travelers insurance! Buffet was about the only thing that didn't disappoint. And offer tiered pricing for top shelf liquor-what was once included in the beverage package now no longer is. So between missing shows from being sold out, not able to get "the vibe" for even one day, kids taking over hot tubs in all areas, top shelf liquor extra and free entertainment was mediocre (piano man), I'd say this isn't really worth the cost. Go for a smaller ship. Oh and the cruise director was not really good. Offer more trivia at afternoon times.
