My wife was attacked by a group of teenage passengers on NCL's private island, Great Stirrup Cay.  One teen threw a rock at her in the water, cutting her hand and requiring 4 sutures.  NCL's lifeguard did nothing.  NCL's security did nothing.  NCL pointedly REFUSED to investigate, saying this attack was not their concern.  NCL then charged us $838 for medical treatment, without our consenting to the charges or reviewing these charges and procedures beforehand.  Not an apology, a word of concern, an inquiry or a gesture on NCL's part.  If you are attacked, assaulted or raped on an NCL cruise, it is not their concern.  BE VERY AWARE.

Understand, NCL's sole concern is selling you more things - gambling, booze, photos, etc. You are a credit card to them, not a person.
