I have been on six cruises, four being on a Norwegian ship. This was the worst ship.. The food was horrible, and they never changed there menu's. There was never anything to do, i asked a cruses worker if there was something going on and hes like if you want to wait four hours theres a party going on but just relax till then. On any other cruise your worried your going to miss something else going on because there is never even a second where nothing is going on. On this cruise you had to search for something and found yourself sitting there bored the majority of the time. The service was horrendous, on the fist night we waited 45 mins at a restaurant before we decided to just get up and leave, because nobody came to even give us a menu. We sat at the coffee bar gave our order and they served everybody else and then started cleaning to counters, never giving us our order. They had the worst attitudes on this ship, we ended up taking off all the tips at the end of the cruise. The ship is big and pretty, but the layout is confusing you cant get to everything from one side of the ship you have to walk all the way around to get to the other side for half of the rooms. They didnt keep up on the rooms, there where times where they never even brought toilet paper. This is not a ship worth your money. I recommend not going Norwegian.
