Was running late but over all was what i expected, a lot of standing around and waiting...

Ship Experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
This was my 6th cruise with ncl, had an amazing time. Waters were very rough the first full day at sea and the 10th day at sea but nothing NCL can do about Mother Nature. Overall experience was good, food choices was not as good as previous cruises, just seem NCL is cutting back the little things which enhanced the cruising experience. Will cruise with NCL but may look into other cruise lines as well to compare.

Onboard Activities

3 out of 5
Although the cruise line has different theme nights for the buffet, options didn't seem to change much. Food was typical buffet food, nothing to write home about.

Bowling was not offered on this ship but is listed on different websites as an activity...

Service and Staff

As always the staff was amazing, polite and works damn hard.

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
Very clean, having shuffle board courts on the promenade deck is a challenge due to the number of people wa walking around the ship.
