This was my third trip on a Norwegian Ship, Bigger is not better. The ship was beautiful, except for the Philippian crew members I found the rest to be disinterested. Food was good, ate in one of the restaurants each night with nice dinner music, then one night a group of about 8 screamed and shouted songs so loud it was all I could do to sit and listen. if not for others in our group I would have left my dinner and gone elsewhere. One show with a comic juggler was fantastic, another called the Brat Pack was terrible, extremely loud. I'm no prude, but why do we have to listen to the "F" bomb with our entertainment.
Norwegian use to be a grate trip with seniors in mind, I now feel they want to attract the younger drinking crowd. Free entertainment consisted of Trivia games, cupcake decorating, towel folding, fruit carving, Others had to be paid for, Bingo etc. I felt the cruise line was doing all they could to dig into my pockets.
If you wanted to use the pool you had better be up there before 9 in the morning, otherwise the drinking crowd lines the edges of the pool with drink in hand. and of course the music level is at it's height. My old employer would not have let me into an area like that with out ear protection, let alone sit all day. when did they decide that louder was better?
More than likely my last cruise.
