Review SummaryThis is Norwegian at its best, or worst depending on what you are looking for. If you enjoy Pork Chops, Chicken, or anything else you can cook at home (Faster by the way)
Then this is the cruise line for you! Try not to look at the daily bulletin because they don't do what they promise for the day, ie The Patriots Vs Jets game on December 16 2007! They had plenty of reasons why we did'nt see it but not a lot of sympathy for all the Pats fans when we did'nt see it. Do not eat at the Blue Lagoon unless you want your party to all eat alone, as the food get's delivered to each person seprately. Also be ready to wait up to 2 hours for your breakfast or dinner in the restaurants you can get a beeper but don't go away, you'll miss out on one fine pork chop meal. Make sure you pack plenty of snacks on this boat, there are times during the day when you cannot get food (except the miserable Blue Lagoon or the Mexican restaurant, which you could starve at before you get any service!) Even the bar service on this ship was slow! What a pity! I do suggest that you get on board and find, Nigel Leventic he is the restaurant Manager, you are going to need him to get any service, then go and find Klaus Lugmaier, he is the Hotel Director and if you want any kind of sevice in your stateroom he can lend a sypathetic ear but no much else. Better yet, bully up and pay the extra money to go on a real cruise line, eat Lobster and filet mignon, and be treated Royally or like a Princess, or a Celebrity, or have a Carnival of a time. Leave this cruise line to the cheap and unfamous and invest in a great time instead of a waste of time. Norwegians new tag line EXPECT NOTHING AND GET IT!!!!
