Review summary

I love Norwegian Cruise line but i think the larger the ship, the quality of food and service decreases. We have been on 7 different ships and this ships quality of food was much lower then other ships. Since starting the "Free at Sea" and offering Speciality Dinning as one of the option, the quality of the Speciality Dinner restaurants has really going down. I doesn't even feel like a special treat to go to them. The seafood Speciality restaurant was extremely expensive and not worth it. If you want to go to this restaurant, you can use your speciality dinner credit but you have an additional charge on top of that and if you want lobster, you pay yet another charge. We will never go there again.

Embarkation

My husband needed a wheel chair so we put in a holding area and our name was taken. It took us over 2 hours to get on the ship. One would think they would try to get the handicapped on first.

Ports of call

Great Stirrup Cay (Cruise Line Private Island), Bahamas Did not visit port

Their island was cancelled. I was very disappointed because this was the only location i wanted to get off the ship for.

Nassau, Bahamas

I am not a fan of Nassau. We have been there many time and i never feel very safe when walking around.

Disembarkation

1 out of 5
This could have ruined my entire vacation. People started gathering around 7:00am and by the time they started paging the first color, everyone started pushing and shoving in order to get off first. There needs to be a better system then the color tags because I watched several different colors trying to leave in the first group.
