Review Summary

We sailed on the SS Norway back in the 80's.  At that time, the Norway was celebrating it's 25th anniversary (used to be the SS France) and imported 1100 or so French people on the ship  It was a nightmare and the worst cruise we've ever experienced.  That was back in the late 80's or 90's.  The experience was so bad that we vowed NEVER to cruise with NCL again!  Well, we are very happy to say that after all this time, we decided to try NCL again and were more than delighted with our experience.  Everything was wonderful - from the food to our wonderful cabin steward Christian to the entertainment, beauty of the ship, etc.  We'll sail Norwegian again!
