Review summary

I love cruising, disappointed in our experience with NCL, maybe the freestyle isn’t a good option. The staff doesn’t go above and beyond because there is no incentive for them. Having the same wait staff at dinner you get to know them and they you, always leave them extra tip at the end because they go above and beyond. NCL should consider this.. staff would definitely be nicer and more accommodating to the passengers

Boring, barely anything going on in the evening on port days and nothing during at sea days


1 out of 5
Just bad entertainment options

Service and Staff

2 out of 5
There was probably a handful of staff that actually smiled and took the extra effort to make conversation. Most of the staff felt bothered by having to do their job, walked around with a scowl on their faces and never said a word

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
Pretty well maintained.

Cabin / Stateroom
