Ship tired but ok.  Needs refurbishment.  Been on several cruses with NCL.  Entertainment OLD same as when I went 2 years ago.  Food ok .... focused attention in speciality  restaurants.  First stop Puerto  Rico,  1PM to 5 PM ..... WHAT CAN YOU DO IN 4 HOURS in the afternoon ???? St Martin/ St Thomas nice full days. TORTOLA  .... LAST DAY  Sunday 7AM TILL 12PM ..... WHAT A WASTE.... evertthing shut down because it was Sunday!!!!   Disembarking  ... ship arrived in NYC @ 8AM ...WAITED 2.5 HOURS TO ACTUALLY LEAVE THE SHIP ..... LINE TO DISEMBARK WRAPPED AROUND 4'TH DECK 3 TIMES  ..... LITERALLY 1500 people waiting to walk off till after 10 AM.
