Review summary

Enjoyed the cruise very much. The accommodations were very good, the service was quite friendly and helpful. I found the cleanliness of the cabin on arrival to be less than stellar however. There were black hairs in the tub and dust on the several of the surfaces. This was remedied when it was pointed out but it should not have happened in a mid ship balcony cabin. Food was for the most part above average except for one meal that fell short in the dining room that I reported in my review to NCL ( fatty steak with fried fast food type shrimp - quality very poor.) Overall, the cruise was quite good.
