Review Summary

sick crew, poor service, poor food, cold food, fatty gristly meat in pub, took 45 min. To get salad in Pacific, mixed up order, then only went to buffet to get good HOT food. Luggage came 9:30pm, still had to have beds separated and safe unlocked other crew filled in jobs stood in long line for hamberger then stood in the beverage /ice cream line to get ketchup that was stupid spoke with hotel manager Sonia & her advice was to try, pub, restaurant again!!!!  She didn't even know that there were no cartons of milk on buffet staff was pouring pitchers of milk into water glasses. We got 2 dinners at Cucina & bistro could not order lobster or steak. CHEAP!!  Nov. I could order anything I wanted I'm platinum and they are cutting back and serving inferior food. I did 3 cruises feb, nov 2015 and March 2016. NCL doesn't appreciate customer and didn't try to offer any compensation for poor meals
