I wanted this cruise to be perfect. It started out with miscommunication on the room. The bathrooms are so tiny. I was told bowling was $5.00 a person per game no it's $9.00.  Eerything cost something. i got the gift certificates for the family thinking they could be used in the only on purchases on the ship. The casinos was so smokey certainly a health risk. Disgusting for a non smoker. Food was good. The crew worked hard and was very friendly. Overall, the cruise was nice after I got over the disappointment of the room  We were told the Haven only to be placed on the 11th floor with no Haven access. I will think twice before  cruising with Norwegian again.
